Jurassic Park III (2001, dir. Joe Johnston)

Alan Grant is lured to Isla Sorna to help find a missing child. Contrived but watchable threequel which wisely ditches the spectacle of the first movie and focuses on delivering effects-driven chase-based monster mayhem, with a few good jokes.

The Babysitter (2017, dir. McG)

A bullied teen finds his babysitter is the head of a satanic cult. Enjoyable horror-comedy with plenty of splattery jokes, a generally light touch, and engaging playing from its leads. Frothy but fun.

It Follows (2014, dir. David Robert Mitchell)

A teenage girl is stalked by an implacable curse which can only be passed on by sleeping with someone else. Splendid autumnal indie-horror with a Carpenterish vibe and a focus on creeping dread as much as on jumps. Recommended.

Another opinion? Here’s Lemonsquirtle’s tuppenceworth.

Bite (2015, dir. Chad Archibald)

After a young woman on vacation gets bitten by a waterborne bug, she develops odd symptoms. Modest and small-scale body-horror flick with plenty of underdeveloped plot threads, but some icky moments and an interesting central performance.

2012 (2009, dir. Roland Emmerich)

A geological event threatens global disaster. Another of Emmerich’s gently-satirical throw-em-to-the-lions iconoclastic pictures, this time playing with Mayan prophecies and CG tectonic plates shifting. Fun if you go with it.

Before I Wake (2016, dir. Mike Flanagan)

A bereaved couple’s new foster son’s dreams – and nightmares – can come true. Atypical jumpscare horror which morphs into something a little more touchy-feely. Not for all tastes, but well-directed by the talented Flanagan.
