Not a recommendation, but the lost Irish movie When the sky falls is now available on DVD. Long lost and forgotten it's yet another movie that got there first but went of circulation while the later 'official' version became the accepted release.

A bunch of lads visit Connemara to remember a friend who died of cancer. They get killed by two people wearing pig masks. This is like a horror version of Hardy bucks meets The stag. It's complete rubbish but still watchable. Found-footage film that's badly done but some scary moments. Two of the group start fighting for no reason and there's one scene where a guy is cut open yet his friend talks to him like he only fainted. Everyone in this movie looks like their best days are gone. There's nothing new or different here. They look too old to be running around these hills. For some reason the director calls himself SPK (instead of his full name). Wasn't that an old industrial band?
Title: The pigman murders
Rather sad article in today's Irish Independent newspaper about Ireland's most overrated female film director. She's been abroad...
