The Beyond (2017, dir. Hasraf Dulull)

A wormhole appears near Earth; a solo mission into the anomaly is planned. Found-footage/mock-doc low-budget SF which has impressive CG, but a talky script happy to recycle Interstellar, Arrival, Avatar and many others rather than tell a story of its own.

The Darkest Dawn (2016, dir. Drew Casson)

A teenager¬†escapes an alien invasion. More developed sequel to Hungerford, this time riffing on 28 Days Later and Heart of Darkness as much as Heinlein’s The Puppetmasters. Still some rough edges, but an improvement over the first instalment.

A Christmas Horror Story (2015, dir. Grant Harvey, Steven Hoban & Brett Sullivan)

Four linked horror stories take place on the same Christmas Eve. Reasonable anthology held together¬†by William Shatner’s drunk radio jock. Plenty of contemporary horror tropes dealt with: changelings, zombies, Krampus, spooky dormitory found-footage.

Bite (2015, dir. Chad Archibald)

After a young woman on vacation gets bitten by a waterborne bug, she develops odd symptoms. Modest and small-scale body-horror flick with plenty of underdeveloped plot threads, but some icky moments and an interesting central performance.

Out of the Shadows [AKA The Devil’s Toy Box] (2017, dir. Allen Kellogg)

A documentary team investigate a supposedly-haunted asylum, the site of a reality show gone wrong five years before. Straightforward jumpscare found-footage horror sequel (to Seven Nights of Darkness), effective for an hour before collapsing in on itself, storywise.
