Mercy Black (2019, dir. Owen Egerton)

A newly-released former psychiatric patient comes to believe her childhood phantom is real. Straightforward autumnal horror with folk, invented mythos and viral sensation aspects. Some good ideas, not all of them given their due, though twists are piled on for their own sake in Act 3.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom (2018, dir. J. A. Bayona)

A mission to rescue dinosaurs from Isla Nublar turns out to be a double-cross. Awkward sequel which doesn’t make a lick of sense, being a string of chase and rescue set-pieces stitched together; the third act is the best, with a horror movie feel to it.
