SYNOPSIS:

“After his girlfriend Nina dies in a car crash, Rob unsuccessfully attempts suicide. As he begins to overcome his grief, he falls in love with a coworker, Holly. Their relationship is complicated when Nina, unable to find rest in the afterlife, comes back to life to sarcastically torment them whenever they have sex.”

REVIEW:

Nina Forever, from directors Ben and Chris Blaine (also written by the duo), is penned as a British Comedy-Horror.

I just got done watching this, a screener copy I was given for consideration. I would not personally call this film comedy nor horror, but maybe somewhere in between? There’s blood, yes, a little bit. There’s a few chuckles, and some cute bits here and there too, but overall, the film felt like it did not really necessarily know which direction it wanted to take viewers.

In saying this, lead actress who played Holly in the film – Abigail Hardingham did an overall good job, and appears partially naked in almost all of her scenes (not that I can see anybody complaining about that!).

Fiona O’Shaughnessy who plays Nina stole the whole show for me though, the parts where she appeared (literally) were very sweet, and I kind of felt bad for her, and found her quite adorable really. (Come on, she’s a hot nude ghost, who wouldn’t!).

All in all, even though Nina Forever is only an hour and a half long, it feels like maybe 2 hours plus, based mainly around a badly written script and slight over-use of some identifiable cliche’s (not the the point of most Hollywood films, but there were quite a few ‘eye-rolling’ moments).

RATING:

4.6 out of 10 – OK for a night in, but don’t count on it making you think too hard.

(Yes, it was hard choosing images from this which were “non-nude”, 90% of the main shots had boobs in them!)
