Rust Creek (2018, dir. Jen McGowan)

A young woman takes a wrong turn and ends up on the run from a pair of backwoods Kentucky meth dealers. An interesting take on a well-worn premise, spending as much time on character and relationships as on in-peril thriller/horror melodramatics. Lots of promise here from all involved.

Here’s the trailer.

Sea Fever (2019, dir. Neasa Hardiman)

A PhD student seconded to a fishing vessel makes an unusual aquatic discovery. While the script can’t quite get to grips with genre storytelling, there’s a lot to enjoy initially, not least with the cast of character actors and excellent use of location and the main fishing vessel environment.
