Alone (2020, dir. John Hyams)

A woman taking a cross-country journey to begin a new life becomes the focus of a predator. Terrific, lean, assured thriller: a stripped-back pure beast of a movie. A story you’ve seen a dozen times before, but seldom – if ever – so well-sustained. Highly recommended.

Here’s the trailer.

Deep Rising (1998, dir. Stephen Sommers)

A salvage boat crew, thieves, and sundry passengers try to escape a liner under attack from sea creatures. Splendid pulpy B-movie with its tongue in its cheek, played with verve by an impeccable cast of character actors.
