A mother agrees to live in her sister’s house while it sells following the death of her husband. However, during one of the open house visits, someone doesn’t leave… Which is what you’ll want to do when watching this. A bad and pointless film. Avoid.
After a brutal opening, four thirty-something friends go hiking in the wilds of Sweden, only to run afoul of something in the Scandinavian woods. Excellent British horror that has echoes of Blair Witch, but has an identity all its own. Worth your time.
Interesting Korean thriller that weaves a twisting story, constantly wrong footing the viewer throughout. What starts out as odd melodrama soon becomes something else entirely, and whilst not 100% successful, it’s certainly oddly entertaining. Worth a go.
An alien invasion provokes an investigation led by a biologist. Sombre SF/horror with whiffs of Arrival and Solaris in its makeup. Genre thrills are underplayed in favour of introspection and aftermath; interesting rather than good, with a perhaps divisive ending.
Slow burn, low key noirish drama sees Guy Pearce come to terms with actions in his past after visiting a fortune teller. An interesting premise that falls flat due to never knowing what to do with the central idea. Good hair from Pearce, though. 😐
An FBI agent and a CIA torturer clash over the questioning of a terrorist. Low-budget but decent moral quandary thriller with some effective performances though ultimately no real answers.
A lonely farmer seeks revenge after the killing of his mother. Splendidly bleak Northern Irish thriller with a darkly comic streak. Well worth seeking out.
