What are people saying?

  • Richmond Hill's rating of the film The Return

    An effective two-hander deftly played by Vaughn and Crutchley (the latter always rather underrated in cold fish roles). A strongly realised atmosphere and score make up for a slim plot. As with the previous B-feature Bierce adaptation, The Man and the Snake, I’d have thought this a little too subtle to compete with people finding their seats or noisily queuing for a Kia-Ora before the main feature, but there we are.
