Filmwerk launched on August 25th 2010 with coverage of FrightFest under the command of Steven Hurst, a professional editor with a hunger for film. Here at Filmwerk we have managed to assemble a diverse team of writers whose interests are quite varied. As a result we are able to bring you informed opinions on not just the mainstream cinema and disc releases but also a wide variety of global classics and genre specific releases.

The Rating System
Like many we have a 5 star system. But we also have writers who object to the star rating and don’t use them at all. So if you come across a review with no stars don’t assume it’s terrible, it has merely been rated in the words only. Sorry any confusion, but we like to think people can adjust to both with ease.
But those writers that do use the system use it as explained below. We may cheat on the podcast and include half star marks, but not on the site! The 5 stars are awarded thusly:
Very good and well above average. Highly Recommended!
Competent, but don’t expect miracles from it. We tend to frown upon 3 stars generally as it should have been better, and probably could have been as well. So NOT a recommendation.
Poor effort. Only if you are truly desperate or a completest.
Rubbish. Avoid at all costs. It is just terrible.
