What are people saying?

  • Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Ice House

    A weakish coda to the run of the minor classic A Ghost Story for Christmas BBC strand with a potentially interesting riff on organic life controlling humans failing to take fire (John Wyndham might have made a better fist of it). Part of the problem is the over-lit staging and repetitious spa procedures respectively killing atmosphere and adding little but length to an already thin yarn.
