Avicii: True Stories (2017, dir. Levan Tsikurishvili)

DJ Tim Bergling/Avicii’s rise to fame, and struggles with physical and mental health issues, as well as with overbearing management and commercial pressures. A fascinating and ultimately poignant behind-the-scenes documentary detailing the mu.ltiple stressors acting on a popular artist’s life.

#Screamers (2016, dir. Dean Matthew Ronalds)

An internet start-up keen for shocking content is sent a series of intriguing scare videos. Found-footage jumpscare horror that works pretty well for its first hour despite unlikeable characters, but which fails to deliver with a workable resolution.

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.
