Raindance 2013 line-up announced

But did they make a mistake in putting Julian Assange on their jury?

Review: Ain't Them Bodies Saints

Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Review: About Time

Ever since I was a boy, I always wondered about voice-overs...

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

Sightseers - trailer

As readers of my pointless waffling highly insightful critique will be aware, I attended FrightFest this weekend. In between all the rape, handheld horrors and handheld horrors about rape, we got to see the trailer for Sightseers - the new effort from Mr. Kill List himself, Ben Wheatley.

Again, people who waste their time so wisely invest hours of their life in perusing this nonsense invaluable publication will be aware that I wasn't a huge fan of Kill List; mainly because it started off good then dawdled into nothingness without any meaning or logic. But judging by the Sightseers trailer, I'm not going to have a problem with this wonderfully dark comedy.

It follows Chris (Steve Oram) as he takes Tina (Alice Lowe) on a caravan journey through the British Isles. They see the Crich Tramway Museum, the Ribblehead Viaduct, the Keswick Pencil Museum... and things soon start to go very, very wrong.

Pitched somewhere between The League of Gentlemen and In Bruges, it promises to be side-splitting stuff when it inevitably arrives at the London Film Festival this year.

Sightseers it out in UK cinemas on Friday 30th November. Read on for the trailer.
