In which we review a feel good film for a change.

If you follow the foreign horror scene, you've probably heard of Steven Sheil's feature "Mum & Dad". It's the latest UK sickie to hit US shores, and our writer Todd recently chimed in with his own thoughts.

If nothing else, it proves that British productions are on the forefront of the genre, tackling themes and scenarios that other countries wouldn’t dare touch. “Mum & Dad” definitely pushes this type of subgenre in an exciting new direction.

I was reading about this project last week and was realy intrigued, but decided to wait for a trailer before I talked about it on the site. Well, one popped up this weekend so here we go.

It's a UK Indie film, that essentially looks like what "Castaway" might have been like if it were a horror film. Here's the official synopsis:

Directed by Andrew Barker, STRAW MAN follows the story of The Lone Man (Simpson), who attempts to fight his own madness by keeping himself company in an empty world by surrounding himself with handcrafted people made of straw.
