Better The Devil You Know
30 April 2017 | by Theo RobertsonSee all my reviews

After a disaster that has destroyed civilisation two brothers have reverted to cannibalism to survive and one day they meet a teenage girl which causes emotional unrest between the siblings

Anyone else getting a little bit fed up with apocalyptic dramas ? You can see why they're attractive to budding film makers because you don't need a big budget , just some rudimentary film equipment, a small cast and a screenplay. In the case of TEAR ME APART the problem lies entirely with the screenplay and sabotages any potential right from the outset. As someone who loves the works of authors like Wyndham and John Christopher I can tell the difference between a good apocalyptic drama and a bad one and the plot holes here mark it out as mainly a bad one . A father takes his two young sons from Scotland to Cornwall ? Why go all that way just to live in a cave since there's plenty of caves in Scotland ? The younger brother is totally unaware what women are ? Let me see now - these two brothers eat random strangers in order to survive and during this considerable time not a single woman has ended up on the menu . By dropping hints at the backstory the story itself digs itself bigger and bigger holes

This is a great pity because there's a good film trying to escape here somewhere. There's a refreshing lack of aliens, zombies and other monsters and instead the antagonists are simply other humans trying to survive in a cruel world. It's also character driven exploring group dynamics and sibling rivalry and the small do the best with the often weak material especially Jennie Eggleton as Mollie . It also makes the incisive point about the human mind-set that we're all conservative by nature and will choose the devil we know. At the end of the day however the film doesn't really overcome the ill thought out opening spiel
