It’s Episode 127. Ben from Excuse the Mess and composer Anne Nikitin return to review Ben’s choice, the 2018 thriller/horror film Calibre. …

Calibre is a British thriller with strong leanings towards horror by Matt Palmer featuring an original film score by our guest Anne! It stars Jack Lowden as Vaughn
Martin McCann as Marcus who are old friends who go on hunting trip in the Scottish Highlands. It isn’t long until they are involved in a devastating incident that leads to a catastrophic chain of events, mainly involving violence.

Calibre manages to maintain a high level of tension – a sweaty mix of guilt and fear from the two leads – throughout its 101-minute runtime. The isolated setting and uncomfortable encounters with the locals only add to the building sense of foreboding as the viewer is left wondering what will happen next.



Calibre scored generously across all categories, particularly high in recommendability and scores 4.21 overall.
