Review: DeadTime (2012)
A Birmingham-based band are ordered by their unhappy record company to an old warehouse; the goal being to re-start their ailing careers with a kick-ass new promo video. Unfortunately the band and their entourage find themselves targets of a mysterious knife-wielding maniac, haunted by the voice of Satan, and out for revenge. DeadTime is written by Stephen Bishop and directed by Tony Jopia. The acting is pretty poor with one or two exceptions. The camera work and editing is decent. The soundtrack is at times pretty awesome. The pacing is decent but the flick could have been at least 10 minutes shorter... There are gore but it´s mostly computer gendered gore make-up fx which I´m pretty sure will dissapoint the gorehounds. For fans of T & A there are some female nudity and some sexscenes.

Rating: 2 out of 7. DeadTime isn´t very good but it´s decent entertainment for the moment.
