Neil LaBute's last play in the West End was called Fat Pig. By the end of In a Forest, Dark and Deep, you could be forgiven for thinking that this new 90-minute drama should be subtitled "Slender Cow". An intermittently taut two-hander, it receives its English premiere in a production by the author that stars Matthew Fox (famed for TV's Lost) and the beautiful and redoubtable Olivia Williams. They both give scorching performances that are, to my mind, a distinct cut above the material.

Half mad and quite bad, this is a film that doesn't know what it wants to be. It starts off as a fairly decent psychological thriller centred on a lunatic (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) with several personalities; then, suddenly, it shifts to a backwood full of old crones and other hackneyed horror tropes.

A novelist in search of a syndrome, Clare Morrall seems irresistibly drawn to characters with cognitive disorders. Her Man Booker-short listed debut Astonishing Splashes of Colour featured a heroine who suffered from synaesthesia, while subsequent novels explored Asperger's and depression. In The Man Who Disappeared, her fourth novel, she examines a yet more idiosyncratic condition - a middle-aged woman seemingly entirely happy with her lot.

It is not immediately clear if this Austrian film is a character study or a psychological thriller, for it has strong elements of both.
