I really enjoyed Nina Forever, it's like a really black comedy, that shows how good a film can be made on a tiny budget.The main focus is around a character called Nina who tragically dies, leaving her boyfriend to pick up the pieces of his life, but then she comes back.While being very graphic and very sweary Nina Forever is also very very charming, it's a beautiful story of loves lost, loves found and loves twisted grip.I gather the film was shot on a budget of around $13,000 but took a very long time to make. The wear does show as one of the characters does age a little during the <more>
film, but it's good. No it's all good.The film is funny, horrible and utterly cool. It's a prime example that low budget British Horror does have a place in society. And it's also a first rate top notch film masterpiece regardless of country of origin.
A multi-layered psychological drama... (by ben-1251)
...with a bit of Rom-Com/Horror thrown in for good measure.We all bring baggage into a new relationship - this film makes the invisible visible and takes you on an enjoyable journey through the process of 'letting go': grief, loss, flights of fantasy, darkness, obsession. It's a haunting story of the impact we have on each other, regardless of whether we acknowledge or even see it happening.Some people are attracted to the Horror elements i.e. the blood but don't be put off by that if you're not a Horror fan. I'm not. And the level of gore is appropriate for the <more>
telling of this story: being haunted by an ex- who appears in bed with you and your new partner every time you attempt to have sex.Nina Forever will make you feel, but then it will make you think. Must see!
A very mature portrayal of pain, loss and trauma using horror elements !!! (by avik-basu1889)
'Nina Forever' is a film that is tough to describe in a nutshell and say which genre it belongs to. It is being presented as a horror comedy on many film related websites. Does it have its horror elements? Yes, it does have a ghostly corpse of a dead ex-girlfriend returning to haunt Rob and Holly whenever they decide to engage in sex. So it does deserve its horror title in a way. Is it funny? Yes, there are a number of laugh out loud moments and lines many of which come from Nina herself. So, the film can be called a loose comedy. Is it a romance as it has a few tender moments between <more>
Holly and Rob? Let's leave that question for later. For me, I think at the heart of it, the film is a hardcore drama about the pain of suffering a loss and the difficulty to move on and also the effects that one partner's baggage and the trauma that he/she brings to a relationship has on the other person.Similar to 'The Babadook', 'Nina Forever' uses some of the elements of the horror genre to explore grief and the struggle to move on after the death of a loved one. Rob's girlfriend Nina had died which made Rob so depressed that he attempted suicide. The film delves deep into how fractured his psyche is. He has to regularly visit Nina's parents to get some support and not collapse again. Holly, a shy girl who works at the same supermarket as Rob gets intrigued by him and they end up dating. The problems arise when the corpse of Nina start appearing whenever Rob and Holly have sex. Why do we not get too many scenes involving Rob and Holly having tender moments with each other except one or two? That is where my problem arises when someone calls this film romantic, because this really isn't. Holly and Rob didn't actually enter this relationship because they admired or liked each other. For Holly, it was an attempt to 'mature' and make herself 'dark'. For Rob, this was a rare occasion where he thought he had found someone who was interested in him and didn't consider him a freak after his suicide attempt. For Rob, in a way, Holly was a way to get over Nina which he actually did manage to do in the end withstanding great difficulty, pain and specially guilt which appeared in the form of Nina whenever he had passionate sex with Holly. From Holly's point of view this is a bit of a disturbing coming of age story. Holly entered this relationship trying to grit herself up. It is mentioned that she is still young and people view her as this sheltered, 'nice', 'vanilla' kid whose niceness sort of makes her a bit uninteresting. So the situation with Rob gave her the opportunity to indulge in something outside of her comfort zone. It was her way to show that she was a mature adult who was also capable of helping others and not just a sweet youngster. Her interest in being a paramedic is another hint of her desire to become a helper. So it is the darkness in Rob's past that attracted Holly and her desires to help him and not Rob as a person. The only problem is, she underestimated the extent to which Rob was traumatised and unfortunately as Rob got better due to Holly's persistent help, the mental instability rubbed off on her and it was she who couldn't get rid of 'Nina'. Nina became her insecurities, her fears, her paranoia and Nina started haunting her instead of Rob. In the process of helping out Rob, she slowly but surely had lost her own identity and her life started to revolve around ensuring the eradication of all things which is a reminder of Nina from Rob and her life and Nina as a result ironically took over her life. The film ends with a marvellous shot of Holly on her bed now with black bedsheet. She is on one side while the other side is vacant. This is a juxtaposition and a visual call back to an earlier similar shot in the film where Holly has the phone on the other side. The last shot of the film taken in context with the earlier one shows the change that has taken place inside Holly. She tried to stare at the abyss, but unfortunately, the abyss looked back and she couldn't cope with it.The film is a disturbing indictment of how the personal baggage that one person brings to a relationship can deeply affect the other person negatively and sometimes in a permanent way.The screenplay is great, but what makes this film really brilliant is the direction and the visual style of the Blaine brothers. The framing of the characters is meticulous. We get various shots of Rob and Holly separated by a barrier, sometimes shots of their feet on either sides of a line. The make up of Nina and the way all the scenes involving her are shot with the shimmering lights to give the illusion of car headlights is brilliant. The directors use very intricate editing very artistically especially jump cuts, sometimes within the same scene like Godard's 'Breathless'. There are also very poignant moments of silence both in the interior as well as exterior scenes that really impressed me. Nature and the surroundings play a role in the film. The film also uses sound brilliantly. The performances are straight all across the board.'Nina Forever' is a very heartfelt film about grief, trauma and relationship baggage. It uses horror elements to explore very human problems. It might throw a pessimistic light on romance and relationships, but the mature way in which the directors treat the story and the characters, ends up distinguishing this film from the Hollywood comedies with similar plots involving dead girlfriends coming back. Highly recommended.
It would be easy to just boil it down to: nudity and intercourse - with added dead girl, whose pretty bloody. And not blood from her period I might add. But there is a lot more here than just the obvious. The story itself is so far out, that you wonder how the person who wrote it came up with it.Some would call it wicked, others outright crazy I reckon. Whatever your take is, you can't deny a certain appeal this will have for obvious reasons . But while it's tough to decide what some might find arousing and others a turn off having someone watching you having sex alone is surely to <more>
divide people . Also: How many mattresses can a person buy? Like for real, it's messed up literally .But the ideas are crazy and you'll either like it or hate it. I'm not sure I would want to be in the position the guy is in. Then again ... But whatever the case it's haunting and it's refreshing and the ideas keep coming well as you can imagine not the only thing ... .
"Nina Forever" has been talked about since it's screening at Fantasia International Film Festival this year, and rightfully so. It's a movie that is hard to categorize into only one genre but still feels complete and secure in its choices. If I were to put it in one genre, then it would be "romance", yet somewhere in this dark love triangle we find comedy, horror, drama, gore, eroticism and pure love. Our emotions are played with in "Nina Forever", and it's exciting to be part of from start to finish.The movie follows Holly and Rob, a young couple who <more>
fell in love after meeting each other at work. Holly found herself fascinated that Rob had recently attempted suicide and decided to muster up the courage to talk to him. Rob doesn't tell her the reasons why, but after a night of passionate sex it is revealed to her that Rob lost his girlfriend in a car crash. Holly finds this out because his girlfriend, Nina, comes back to life while they are having sex. She continues to torment the couple every time they have sex.The wonderful thing about this kooky concept is that we have no distinct answers as to why Nina returns, but it never makes us question it. We feel involved but we don't let the mystery of Nina get in the way of what actually matters in the movie - the love story. This is not the first movie where a dead ex-girlfriend returns to life. In fact, there have been a few recently with Joe Dante's "Burying the Ex" and "Life After Beth". Both of those movies follow a recognizable formula, but "Nina Forever" is its own thing entirely. Nina doesn't come back as a zombie that the couple have to deal with and try to hide from people. Nina comes back as something else, more of a ghost, and only comes back during sex to make life harder for the couple.Thanks to the comedy, which is not too crazy or out there, we can relate to this strange story and connect to it as a love drama rather than a horror movie. That doesn't mean that it isn't charged with several dark, twisted things. There are scenes that could be qualified as necrophilia, several scenes of graphic gore, and a whole lot of nudity and steaming hot sex scenes always followed by a bloody mess in the bed as Nina makes her entrance . Luckily the movie remains hard to classify because it doesn't choose to focus on one thing specifically, and this leaving us with the wonderful movie that "Nina Forever" is.Abigail Hardingham, Cian Barry and Fiona O'Shaughnessy make up the lead trio of actors and I am pretty sure that the Blaine guys would have had some problems on their hands if it weren't for these three. In a movie as odd as this it is important that all parts understand exactly what they are trying to achieve. These three lovely actors could not have had an easy time on their hands, trying to balance all of the important ingredients to make "Nina Forever" as lasting and engaging as it is. It could easily have slipped into the realms of bland or trying too hard, but it never does."Nina Forever" is one of the bloodier romances, but don't confuse that with being a horror movie. It shows several aspects of a horror movie, obviously, but there is a heavy focus on comedy, drama and romance as much as there is on blood and gore. It's a fresh take on several old genres and I can't help but think that this will be on many people's minds after they have seen it. Whether "Nina Forever" sounds like it would be up your alley or not, it is a movie that I highly recommend to all of our readers.
This Frightfest 2015 favourite is the first gem of 2016. A British indie written and directed by Ben and Chris Blaine, it's a jet-black sex comedy about a dead young woman who comes back to life whenever her ex-boyfriend has sex. And he's having a lot of sex with his new girlfriend, Holly Abigail Hardingham .Avoiding potentially tiresome scenes of endless disbelief, the central couple accept the bizarre situation far more easily than their zombie. Indeed, Holly is actually turned on by the presence of Nina Fiona O'Shaughnessy . The latter is in no mood for a ménage a trois, and <more>
proceeds to torment the new lovers. She's the embodiment of guilt.Nina Forever doesn't go for scares. But neither does it go for the surreal. The grounded way in which it depicts its essential weirdness is one of its main appeals. It's reminiscent of the deadpan exchanges between David and his dead buddy in An American Werewolf in London – that's the tone.Another key element is the characterisation. Holly and Rob Cian Barry are entirely convincing as the late-teenage lovers, swept up in their twisted, hermetically-sealed fantasy. And the Blaine brothers throw into the mix Nina's grieving parents, whose struggles to cope dad's writing a terrible book; mum's trying to keep her daughter alive through Rob are funny and moving.The Blaines' control of the material is seriously impressive. Everyone knows comedy-horror is a virtually impossible balancing act, but they mostly nail it, lightening the darkness of the material without ever taking the camp way out. It is horrific and it is funny, which is all you can ask. The balance is achieved through an unholy trinity of sex, death, and love. There's something here about faithfulness. If you never had a chance in life to stop loving someone, how do you have consent to love another? Real thought has been put into the script, creating a uniquely involving genre-evading experience. Its central romance is as carefully rendered as its gore. Nina doesn't just mean different things to different people; she means different things to the same people over the course of the story. She plays a key part in the ending, where quiet revelation awaits.And that's what this highly original film is: a quiet revelation.
Nina Forever is the second horror film I have seen this year employing a supernatural context to examine the problems of an excessively possessive ex-girlfriend. The first one was Burying the Ex, but its general tone had been more humorous and playful, while Nina Forever employs deep metaphors in the shape of a bloody naked ghost which appears while the characters Rob and Holly are having sex. Sure, there are also generous portions of black humor in said premise, but co-directors and co-screenwriters Ben and Chris Blaine amenably deal with the "widowhood" concept, as well as the <more>
difficult task of forgetting an ex-couple in order to enter into a serious engagement with another person. However, "forgetting" isn't the right word; in fact, that's where the dramatic knot of Nina Forever lies on. During their long relationship, Nina was an essential part of Rob's life, and Holly's presence will never be able to erase it, despite how intense and sincere this new love might be. So, how can they ignore that literal presence invading and transforming each moment of the incipient relationship? That's what the characters have to find out while facing the bizarre challenges of their "romantic triangle"; and even though their decisions don't always seem logical or even rational, actors Abigail Hardingham, Cian Barry and Fiona O'Shaughnessy express intense and realistic feelings, making the audience plunge into the confusing and undoubtedly macabre situation. The Blaine brothers employ an unusual narrative style, telling the story with chronological games which sometimes invert the normal order of the scenes ie, we first see the consequence, and then the cause ; that occasionally feels like an affectation, but it generally contributes to highlight the contradictions of the morbid romance, and generate suspense which wouldn't exist otherwise, because the horror is more cerebral than physical. And, well, I can't stop mentioning the sex scenes in which the trio faces their most difficult moments. In those sequences, the Blaine brothers created a simultaneously sad, sensual and disturbing atmosphere which seduces at the same time it repels; they reminded me of the dreamlike scenes of the strange film Excision... even though they have more dramatic validity here. As I previously said, Burying the Ex took a completely different focus than the one of Nina Forever, but that doesn't mean that both perspectives lack of validity. Sometimes, romance ends as a tragedy, and sometimes, as a comedy. The important thing is recognizing it on time and getting ready for the emotional aftermath which will chase us afterwards.
