^ Agreed It started off really nice, but then got gradually worse.
Plus "Jared Leto's" death could be seen coming from like 5 minutes into the movie, man I hate over-predictable plots.

Yeah it's an amazing film I was glad to see it was the opening film at the Amsterdam Fantastic Film Festival a couple of days ago, a while back I thought this film wouldn't get any exposure at all, but I guess my screening was just one of the earlier ones. The main actress (Stephanie something) is pretty good too - and her dad/PM (Rob Brydon) did an excellent job once more.
