A family impacted by grief begins to experience mysterious occurrences. Splendid slow-burn horror about loss and faith. Lots to enjoy, with a creepy atmosphere well-sustained, and some fine variations on old genre ideas.
How about a different opinion? Here’s Xussia’s.
A late night train is attacked by werewolves. Straightforward Brit B-movie, playing its few cards admirably straight. Makes the most of its single carriage location, and throws in some very decent practical effects.
Innovative and visually breathtaking sci-fi, with Reeves and co discovering they are the last humans surviving through a computer simulation. Still lots of fun 20 years later.
Superior genre collision sees WW2 France become the setting for Nazi horror. This works mostly because it plays it straight throughout, lending a sense of weight to the schlocky second half. Great FX, excellent performances. One to watch, for sure.
Students searching for a lost relative come across a compound where prehistoric giant birds are being experimented on. Tatty ripoff of Jurassic Park (with a few overt horror plot elements), here done on a DTV budget with woeful CG to match.
An ex-diplomat is recalled to Beirut to negotiate a hostage release. Generally smart thriller which downplays the geopolitics of the region and wisely focuses on multiple warring groups after the same prize. Solid direction and unshowy playing helps.
A psychiatrist’s visions of his dead daughter lead him to confront the secrets of his youth. Initially contrived but nevertheless effective supernatural thriller with plenty of jump scares and a couple of interesting ideas.
