Eerie and memorable
6 January 2007 | by andybigblokeSee all my reviews

Having been addicted to films for some 30 years I am just as happy watching something made for £1M or £100M , but I don't expect them to be the same. I only expect them to be interesting The concept and realisation of the Descendant along with the strange and ,to me, previously unknown subject matter made the film compelling. The tension that develops between the fey protagonist (James) from the modern world and the serious reserved characters James discovers in his family's past is very well played in large part and I had a growing feeling of discomfort as the film progressed. Horror films that develop discomfort from the milieu (The Wicker Man)rather than with bloodied bodies and slick CGI ( Nightwatch )seem to stick longer in the memory and this is one of the former.
