A teen fears her new home may be haunted; the truth is perhaps worse. Straightforward jumpscare horror which takes time to set up plenty of plot possibilities before making its choice. Some decent moments, though also a sense of being edited to the bone, losing some subplots.
A documentary crew follows a band of New Zealand vampires over several months. The mock-doc format is the weakest element here, but this is a funny and inventive flick made with real affection and a sense of depth in the characterisations. Recommended.
A realtor finds that the property she is trying to sell is host to a malevolent entity. Its odd structure and unwarranted ending aside, a reasonable entry in the possessed property jumpscare sub-sub-genre. Some neat moments among the standard shenanigans.
A mother’s secret identity may be mixed up with an ancient artefact. Oddball SF/horror that tries to do zombie movie, family secret flick, and an existentialist SF movie all in one. The whole thing collapses under its awkwardness, tho it gains a point for daft ambition.
Siblings journey to the family’s remote holiday home where their brother may be going mad. Not-bad psychological horror which takes an SF/military experiment route than the usual haunting or serial killer options. Falls apart in act 3, tho Larry Fessenden pops up.
A young couple with a baby move into a sublet apartment; things soon go awry. Well-sustained minimalist psychological thriller of the haunting-or-mental-breakdown variety. Effective until the loose plot threads come home to roost.
When a viral outbreak locks down a high rise office full of angry lawyers and heightens there inherent mania, blood, violence and madness ensues. Full of vim and vigour, and reminiscent of early Raimi, this is a thoroughly enjoyable pleasure.
