★★★★½ review by Gemma lou on Letterboxd
Blood stained erotic dark comedy with a genuine emotional power . I cant recommend Nina Forever enough.
As a young woman my ideas of love came from the great romances such as Romeo and Juliet or Wuthering Heights. The concept of Us against the world and we can overcome anything filled my mind. As i watched Nina forever I saw my younger self in the character of Nineteen year old Holly who is initially Intrigued by the darkness, then willing to do anything to keep her love but soon begins to realise her problems may begin closer to home and that taking on other peoples baggage literally becomes your own.
★★★★★ review by Andy Lunn on Letterboxd
Still a delight on re-watch. More of a black comedy this time around though, rather than a horror fest. Would make a nice 'Bonkers birds in love, trilogy' with May and The Loved Ones
★★★★ review by Megan_Maggot on Letterboxd
moist, horrific, overtly sexual, subtle comedy, ghastly, entertaining
★★★★ review by CoolKidNamedKid on Letterboxd
This film deals with the serious problems
of loss and grief but loosens the whole with
many cynical puns and truly dark British humor.
Could be a bit shorter in my opinion,
but still a film that no one should miss out.
★★★★★ review by J.P. Vitale on Letterboxd
This is one twisted, bloody good movie. Rob and his new paramedic-in-training girlfriend Holly are all in the middle of having hot and heavy sexy times when Nina, Rob's dead girlfriend emerges from inside the bed covered in blood. What ensues is a twisted love triangle-cum-literal-threeway with lots of implied necrophilia and craziness.
My one problem with this horror romance is that it often feels overstretched, like it should have been a short film but instead was a feature film.
But that's a nitpick as this was a lot of fun.
