First review for Markham – One word – Brilliant!

My feature film debut as a director Markham has been selling well on DVD and on demand on Vimeo and its slowly picking up interest from bloggers and critics (spoiler alert – there’s a potentially big review coming soon from one of the foremost critics in the UK – and someone who knows horror films better than anyone). 

This week, we were pleased to see the first official review coming in from prominent horror blogger David Dent across on his website – Dark Eyes of London.

Thankfully, David really got what we were trying to do with Markham and gave us a super smashing review which does the film, and indeed the crazy way we made it a lot of justice. Quotes for the poster include:

‘…amusing, baffling, often incomprehensible, and inventive as hell…’

‘You can keep your multiplex blockbusters or your costume dramas, this is inventive, nuts guerrilla filmmaking…’

The review ends with one word – ‘Brilliant’.

Pop over to Dark Eyes of London and have a read of the full review yourself.   Even better why not stream Markham on Vimeo now or buy the DVD from my director website.  You know it makes sense…
