Good price for this. If you have a Walkers code it's £6.26.

HMV/Play £8.99

The world is in ruins after some apocalyptic event. A father and his son are walking towards the coast in an attempt to head south to escape the increasingly cold, endless winter. Along the way they have to avoid gangs forced into cannibalism. Their only weapon is a pistol with 2 shots.

A brilliant film and an amazing book. I paid £13 for this a while back and don't regret it at all.
#2
Probably a little unfair to include the entire synopsis in the description!

Great film though.

Yeah, there were a few spoilers in there! Sorry about that. I've edited it now.

may have to order this
#5
Good film for insomniacs
#6
one of those films with an ending that leaves you saying "is that it?" iirc
#7
I quite liked it, so I imagine that a lot of other people won't!

Mixed reviews, but a good price. It does look decent in 1080p.
#8
Awesome movie but with a slightly disappointing ending.
#9
Very boring film,don't buy it.

actually do buy it. i loved this film. its very dark but wonderfully filmed. if you find this film 'boring' you probably would find lesbian vampire killers 'well funny' :(
#11
Great family entertainment. ;o)
#12
I thought the film was ok, but it's not one that I would watch again in a hurry.
#13
Saw this at the weekend. Really grim movie. I managed to watch to the end but it didn't grab me in the slightest. Not sure that I'd pay for it. Better to rent and regret a little rather than buy and regret a lot;).
#14
Buy the book, it's far better. Still voted hot for the price.

If you've got an attention span longer than 5 seconds, then it's an engrossing, harrowing film. Otherwise stick with Transformers/Clash of the Titans.

The whole idea of the ending is supposed to leave you thinking. In the book, the last paragraph leave you guessing even more and I've had a few discussions about what it meant.

It is meant to be slow and bleak as that is the whole point of the movie. Book of Eli is at the other end pf the spectrum and might be better if you want an all-action movie. Bearing in mind that for 90% of the film there are only 2 actors and that the whole country is covered in grey ash, it will be "dull".

I love films where nothing happens, some of my favourites are things like garden state, you me and everyone we know etc etc and this totally missed the spot for me, I really don't like action movies so its not "the road" or "transformers" for me.. I like films that make me think, this one just made me zzzzzz

yes it was bleak but there are loads of bleak films out there and the type of ending is nothing new now but this was just "look how utterly awful things could be" and I just found myself thinking.. yes, I know they could.. and?

Didn't really spark any internal debate or thought and I thought the end just reinforced the feeling I'd just wasted 2 hours on some directors self indulgent guff.

But horses for courses!

It's not as good as the sequel The Famished Road. X)

Seems like it's a marmite film, I didn't much like it and found it dragged on some.

While the title Lesbian Vampire Killers sounds like it has potential to be sexy and funny, I'm sure it was poorly executed.

a very very dark film that left me feeling a bit down, i personally watch films for their entertainment value and this has none

It isn't supposed to be an entertaining film. It will leave you feeling bleak and empty. As a dad myself, I could completely empathise with the dad and his fears.

Like a previous poser said, it is a marmite film. Depressing, yes, but brilliant too.
