Hard to like mish-mash. Gruesome drippy visuals and gore weaved into a detective story that makes no real sense. Another poor attempt at dragging out a Franchise that was never really very good anyway. Watch if bored only.
An estranged father and son have to work together to survive on a hostile planet. Contrived and awkwardly-structured SF/horror; an obvious Smith family passion project. One great jumpscare aside, though, this is minor work from all.
Four friends visit an escape room; except they’re trapped with a malevolent entity. Low-budget horror that riffs neatly on a current trend, and works well to hide its many borrowings (everything from Hellraiser to Saw). Not great at all, but some interesting moments.
A group of friends are terrorised by a company providing bespoke horror experiences. In-jokey horror-themed riff on Fincher’s The Game which starts slow, but gathers momentum, and is actually pretty good at disguising its payoff.
A young executive is lured to a remote clinic to find his superior. Gorgeously-designed and formally beautiful psychological horror, which mixes elements of Dracula and Frankenstein. However, it’s almost an hour too long. Get on with it!
Don’t take my word for it, though. Here’s Lemonsquirtle’s review.
A weapons deal goes bad. A contrived but slick, funny, and thoroughly entertaining action/horror hybrid that makes no bones about its B-movie borrowings. Everyone involved is clearly having fun; Wheatley’s best film to date.

An alcoholic drifter stumbles into a town where the annual manhunt is about to begin. Bleak borderlands horror/thriller of trouble down Mexico way. Lots to recommend it if you like your meat gamey.
