When a hyper young man’s hobbies prevent his neurotic mother from playing bingo with pensioners, Edward Scissorhand’s evil twin brother – distant cousin to Candyman – appears to sort out the wardrobe, replace the wallpaper and sprinkle some life-affirming darkness on their drab lives while they enter the market for a new pet.

Verdict: A well-crafted, visually inventive psychological horror film that maintains a thick atmosphere of fear and dread throughout. Truly horrific because we CARE ABOUT THE CHARACTERS! (Hollywood, step back from the CGI and take note!)
