Tucker & Dale vs. Evil (2010, dir. Eli Craig)

Two well-meaning backwoodsmen have their good intentions misunderstood by camping students. Jolly-enough horror-comedy that gets by on the charm of its leads, by a strong-enough premise, and some effective slapstick gore.

The Atticus Institute (2015, dir. Chris Sparling)

A documentary account of 1970s ESP tests revealing a case of demonic possession. Well-handled for the first two acts, though loses its way in the third. Well-acted throughout, though, and provides a few good jumps and arresting images.

Here Alone (2016, dir. Rod Blackhurst)

A woman hides in a forest after the death of her daughter and husband in a zombie outbreak. Low-key and downbeat z-flick which makes the most of its limited resources in focusing on grief and character rather than on splatter.

I Am Not A Serial Killer (2016, dir. Billy O’Brien)

An isolated teen is caught in a series of murders in a small town. Initially slow-moving, this dark horror piece gathers momentum as it proceeds, ending in places quite distant from its beginning. Christopher Lloyd puts in a lovely supporting performance.
