ANOTHER MILLENIAL REVIEWER
'Not only is it smart and funny but it explores some really interesting themes.
This should be on everyone's must watch list.'
‘A must see . It’s funny, it’s dark, it works.’
‘Guardians is one of those film that some viewers will find themselves watching over and over again.’
‘Like a disturbed cousin to the films of Edgar Wright.’
A comedy thriller in which two unqualified men are thrown together and tasked with protecting an East London townhouse with a big secret from unseen assailants that may or may not be 200 yr old ghosts cursed to haunt the walls of the house till emptiness consumes it. Easy.
