A young woman finds she is possessed by her unborn twin, growing as a tumour in her brain. Grubby little horror pic with decent gore effects, but with a glum premise, iffy interior logic, a queasy and wholly unjustified focus on rape, and an unravelling storyline.
A child of divorced parents becomes possessed by a demonic doll. Clumsy horror unable to deliver on scares, gore, dread, or much interior logic despite a mounting body count and a decent supporting turn from Tobin Bell. Meh.
Dreary sequel-ish film. New family, same house, little horror. Jennifer Jason Leigh is watchable, but can’t save this garbage. Tries and fails to re-capture prior horror greatness with predictably stupid scenes. Did the studio win the franchise rights in a poker game? Awful shit.
A bullied teen finds his babysitter is the head of a satanic cult. Enjoyable horror-comedy with plenty of splattery jokes, a generally light touch, and engaging playing from its leads. Frothy but fun.
A teenage girl is stalked by an implacable curse which can only be passed on by sleeping with someone else. Splendid autumnal indie-horror with a Carpenterish vibe and a focus on creeping dread as much as on jumps. Recommended.
Another opinion? Here’s Lemonsquirtle’s tuppenceworth.
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.
A bereaved couple’s new foster son’s dreams – and nightmares – can come true. Atypical jumpscare horror which morphs into something a little more touchy-feely. Not for all tastes, but well-directed by the talented Flanagan.
