Neil Marshall (DOG SOLDIERS, THE DESCENT, DOOMSDAY, CENTURION) is one of those directors who has a story better than the special effects. And I’m a man who loves special effects. Yet the only time you see SFX in a Neil Marshall movie is when it absolutely, positively serves the story.
Neil is known as something of a Splatter director even though he isn’t particularly into Horror Thriller. So when a director uses this much gore and monsters and it still absolutely serves the story? Holy cow! Even his misses are entertaining!
