  • HKFanatic's rating of the film Tattoo

    You'll find the DNA of several other, more noteworthy films - "Seven" and "Suicide Club" among them - woven into the fabric of "Tattoo," but for most of its duration, director Robert Schwentke manages to engage with a fast-moving storyline. The dour color palette, ceaseless downpour of rain, and fascist undertones all work to create a palpable sense of urban dread that should appeal to the discerning horror fan.
