screenplay by Ben Shillito
directed by Steve Lawson
by Jefferson Robbins That single star is for the concept--London gangsters vs. vampires--which, apart from some very fine lensing and decent actors, is probably the only thing that got Dead Cert any kind of release. In a genre thickly dotted with piles of shit, this thing is shit stacked high but glazed with modest visual sugar and a great high-concept. It barely merits a single viewing, yet you keep hoping something will switch on and provide a reason to persevere.
