  • Nick Schwab's rating of the film Memory of the Dead

    Tries so hard to be outrageous that it forgets to tell an interesting story. Many of the horror scenes turn out to be nightmares, and they stretch on far too long. Memory of the Dead confuses gore for horror, banal conversation for characterization, and bad CGI for atmosphere. It seems from the advertising it can be taken as a dark comedy, but frankly I am unsure when I was supposed to laugh with it, not at it.
