Paddy Considine’s ‘Tyrannosaur’ gets good results at the British Independent Film Awards





Paddy Considine’s gut wrenching drama Tyrannosaur is one of the best British films of the year in my humble opinion, so it gives me great pleasure to announce that the film did very well at the recent British Independent Film Awards. The film walked away with the award for Best British Independent Film, Best Debut Director and Best Actress for Olivia Colman’s stunning performance. All these awards are massively justified, and you can see why this film should have won by reading my review.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.
