The Bye Bye Man (2017, dir. Stacy Title)

Three students resurrect a fatal curse which can be spread like a virus. Initially intriguing jumpscare horror that falls apart under the weight of its convoluted (albeit new) origin myth, and through story inconsistencies.

The Shape of Water (2017, dir. Guillermo del Toro)

A mute cleaner falls in love with a humanoid aquatic creature being held in a government research laboratory. Dazzlingly confident romantic fantasy with SF/horror touches. Amelie meets The Creature From The Black Lagoon with a bit of Little Voice. Highly recommended.
