If Mike Leigh had directed Near Dark it might have resembled this Manchester-set indie horror.
Social realism collides with cannibalism when unemployed youth Michael (Elliot James Langridge) meets brothel worker Lee (Jessica Barden) and is inducted into her flesh-eating ‘family’. Seedy urban locations evoke a terrific sense of place, and there’s a depth to the flawed characters that makes you care about their fates. A kitchen sink drama drenched in blood and gore, horror fans will appreciate this twist on a familiar tale that also brings vampire flicks like Bordello of Blood and From Dusk Till Dawn to mind.
