Brits act all high and mighty with their TV shows that span decades but only have 12 episodes total, endless panel shows because they just love talking and Richard Ayoade, however, what they don’t tell you is that they have their very own Asylum movie production company. It’s called Proportion Productions and is headed by the dynamic duo of Scott Chambers and Rebecca Matthews. Together they churn out soulless mockbusters and get directing, writing, producing, casting, catering and whatevering credits.
They manage to release dozens of films each year with a little trick: having no artistic integrity. Take this film, Hatched, for example. The plot is: a T-Rex is loose in the countryside of England and a very limited cast of characters need to figure out what to do. What the fuck are they supposed to do, you might ask? Nothing. Just flail around with a limited script. The film is shot in a mansion that was probably rented over a long weekend and shot during that time.
I can’t fault the actors, work is work and they need it, and there is no real script they are working with, no character development or intrigue to explore. They could be replaced by cardboard cutouts, and the carboard cutouts would probably look better than the CGI models the producers bought on sale on a shady website.
