Nails: Decent Irish cinema
Nails is an Irish horror that rather took me by surprise. Revolutionary? Hardly, but certainly enjoyable. It tells the story of a woman who after getting hit by a car finds herself partially paralyzed in a hospital bed. Miserable and alone she begins to question if she's truly alone or if a supernatural entity really is stalking her. Nails hardly brings new stuff to the table and you'll have seen the majority of it before but thankfully it's done better than most and manages to deliver on both quality and scares. Furthermore why it took me by surprise is that I generally tend not to like British or Irish cinema, they have the habit of following formulas even more generic than Hollywood (And that's saying something). The film manages to build an atmosphere, a great claustrophobic setting and an interesting background for our antagonist. The setting is also excellent, though it perhaps could have been explored a tad more. Starring Ross Noble who many will know as a stand up comedian and Stitches in the movie of the same name, Nails is an enjoyable effort in a highly saturated genre. The Good: Great antagonist Quite well constructed The Bad: Some moments of sheer stupidity Some questionable cgi
Pretty standard haunting flick
For your run of the mill horror fan this is worth a watch. It ticks off all the boxes of your typical haunt story. The story takes place entirely within an oldish hospital after our protagonist is hit by a car while out for a jog and paralyzed. She soon starts to sense that someone, or something, is watching her. The story has a good pace, it's shot well, the acting and dialogue are fine as are the limited special effects. It's worth a watch on a boring night in the dark but there's nothing original about it so don't expect it to knock your socks off.
Better then you think.
I was genuinely surprised by the low score and generally unfavorable reviews, I rather enjoyed it. The story was good, the acting was solid, the scares were moderate but we'll delivered, and Ross Noble was genuinely great. A clever premise, with a suitable victim, Dana, having been used to being so fit and strong had her life ripped to shreds by a car accident. It's well paced, it looks good, I can't really find a huge deal to fault, other then the scare scale. Enjoyable, 7/10
You won't be biting your nails!
Very poor. I was attracted to this because I love a good horror movie, and it seemed to have a good cast. After twenty minutes of viewing it became abundantly clear a good horror movie was not what I was getting. It was the same predictable, cheap scare (monsterous face to the camera with a sound effect - you know the one) wrapped around some dreadful acting. Ross Noble's performance in this was more akin to an early episode of Byker Grove than a feature film. And poor Shauna. Quite why she took part in this fecal fest, I don't know. Perhaps the electric bill was due. The below par script; littered with exposition problems, poor dialogue, characters who you don't care for, a villain that makes no sense in a situation that makes no sense. All in all it was pretty bad.
I think Nails is about 70% complete while the rest was just air pockets. Can't believe it managed to create the genuine horror atmosphere like it supposed to, without delivering a proper finale. It's like the movie decided to hang itself instead of going all the way. It was on the right track! It's not your usual standard haunting, those come with a good ending. The more of today haunting movie always seem to have a twist. Another character involved, one that stood low for so long and now his crimes are being resurfaced. Nails is a pretty much straight forward production, with plenty of black outs, some attempts at jump scares and a better character development than most. Dialogue is OK, camera works nicely but the script was surely enough incomplete. Just some details missing, but important links that would have offered a proper flow to the movie and would have better connected the viewer to it. Similar movie, as in one that almost impressed but barely missed the mark sadly, is The Haunting of Helena. If you liked this one be sure to check that one too. Cheers!
