Cooties (2014, dir. Cary Murnion and Jonathan Milott)

Teachers are held under siege when their summer-school pupils contract a deadly virus. Serviceable horror-comedy which gets some mileage out of a game cast and script, and from its gleeful approach to child-centric gore.

Fear, Inc (2016, dir. Vincent Masciale)

A group of friends are terrorised by a company providing bespoke horror experiences. In-jokey horror-themed riff on Fincher’s The Game which starts slow, but gathers momentum, and is actually pretty good at disguising its payoff.

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.

Ibiza Undead (2016, dir. Andy Edwards)

A lads’ vacation to Ibiza goes awry thanks to zombies. Stilted horror-comedy with variable acting, awkward plotting and a sense of a simple premise unfulfilled. A couple of good gags sneak through, and there’s an attempt at pathos towards the end, but that’s about it.

Attack of the Lederhosen Zombies (2016, dir. Dominik Hartl)

Snowboarders fend off zombies in a ski-lodge. Terrible title, weak jokes, and duff acting aside, this is a tatty-but-endearing one-joke movie which foregrounds gory slapstick and the occasional genuinely inventive visual over logic or story. Passable.
