Creepy, intriguing and oddly disturbing, found footage/paranormal film based around the death of a teenager and the events leading up to it. Told through documentary style footage and assembled bits and pieces. Exceptionally well executed. Watch it
A New Years’ party in Wales is the centre of an alien invasion. Low-budget SF/horror/comedy with some oddly irrelevant production values and an overly-complex backstory. Not great at all, but there are a couple of good moments.
In modern-day London, Dracula is behind an establishment conspiracy to unleash a plague epidemic. Modish late series entry, with loads of ideas, and an approach drawing on SF and a Bond villain plot. Fun, within its limitations, and impeccably played.
A renovated former slaughterhouse may be haunted by the child of a former serial-killer employee. Overly-complicated horror shenanigans with a couple of effective moments, though undone by its backstory, poor CG, and some obvious writing.
Three young adults summon a demon. Straightforward jumpscare horror with some surprising gore moments; the rules of the summoning game and the backstory confuse matters, but old pros Lin Shaye and Robert Englund add some class.
Vehicles come alive, terrorising travellers hiding out in a rural diner. TV movie version of the same Stephen King short that inspired Maximum Overdrive, with odd gore scenes inserted to make it a horror for international cinema release. Perfunctory.
A viral outbreak in a small Iowa town leads to a zombie-like infection and a military lockdown. Effective and well-sustained remake of the 1973 George Romero flick of the same name. Cynical, paranoid and subversive within its now-familiar genre framework.
