Small town crime drama with a decent premise that is not smart enough to invert expectations with its rather predictable ending. Even though told backwards and home to a couple of decent moments, this is formulaic at best. 😐
A framed prisoner curses those responsible for his execution. Generally effective descent-into-madness horror flick, somewhat uncomfortably adapted from a documentary account of a true story. Some ingenious moments though.
Five students have a weekend away, but nothing is at it seems. Hugely entertaining horror deconstruction, as much about storytelling and the power of myth as it is about pulling apart old tropes for the sake of it. Absolutely recommended.
Classic Sci-Fi re-imagining with stunning VFX but clunky narrative. Tom Cruise plays ‘overwhelmed’ well, but the film is hindered by disjointed modernising of the plot and some stitched in, though well realised, action set pieces. Worth an Ooh laa!
A young man and accomplices break into an abandoned asylum trying to find a death certificate worth millions. An oddly-complex story is buried in this otherwise ordinary jumpscare thriller. Naturally, the asylum is haunted and worse.
An Arizona sheriff finds his old hometown involved in a conspiracy to smuggle arms to Mexico. Straightforward borderlands thriller with a couple of good performances and aspirations to be No Country For Old Men, which is no bad thing.
Gruesome social experiment horror thriller where trapped employees are pitched against each other in a gruesome game. Tight, oddly dark humoured and interesting with nasty gore. Worth a watch! 🙂
