A UN investigator tracks a zombie virus to its source. The z-movie as big-budget spectacular; not quite action-adventure, not quite horror. A series of linked set-pieces, and not bad, though not for fans demanding a faithful adaptation of its source novel.
A military leader clashes with an idealistic doctor in the aftermath of a zombie outbreak. This second loose remake of Romero’s 2005 Day of the Dead adds little but a photogenic cast and some reasonable gore FX among the usual tropes and poor character decisions.
A fatherless boy is hunted as both the potential saviour and destructor of the multiverse. Impressively-designed and well shot, this is nevertheless an oddly perfunctory and rushed movie, cherrypicking 90 minutes of action from the Stephen King fantasy cycle.
Fancy another point of view? Here’s Lemonsquirtle’s review.
The Ghostbusters have to reunite to battle another supernatural threat to New York. As much a remake of the 1984 original as a sequel, this passable reprise lacks the first film’s freshness, but has a few good lines and performances nevertheless.
Incredibly clever tense horror/thriller where sound attracted monsters stalk a small family struggling to survive. So many subtle moments and clever ideas but with occasional hints of inevitability. Highly enjoyable, worth a trip to a good cinema! Shhhh!
Four friends on a camping holiday in memory of their murdered friend take a short cut through a forest. Well-sustained Scandinavian backwoods horror (from the Adam Nevill novel) with some emotional depth and an intriguing mythology.
Imagine Pet Semetary, but where someone thought that replacing an American Indian burial ground with an Indian burial ground and you’re not far off. Lightweight, paranormal bunkum with nary an original thought to its name. Meh.
