A framed prisoner curses those responsible for his execution. Generally effective descent-into-madness horror flick, somewhat uncomfortably adapted from a documentary account of a true story. Some ingenious moments though.
Five students have a weekend away, but nothing is at it seems. Hugely entertaining horror deconstruction, as much about storytelling and the power of myth as it is about pulling apart old tropes for the sake of it. Absolutely recommended.
Gruesome social experiment horror thriller where trapped employees are pitched against each other in a gruesome game. Tight, oddly dark humoured and interesting with nasty gore. Worth a watch! 🙂
Archaeologists lead a space mission to the creators of life on Earth. Good-looking and packed with great images, this Alien prequel is nevertheless hugely flawed, not least with an abundance of intelligent beings doing really dumb things.
An ex-cop’s investigations lead to another family in supernatural jeopardy. More creepy jump-scare shenanigans from Blumhouse; this starts well but gets bogged down in underdeveloped plotlines and discarded ideas.
A US student to the UK survives a werewolf attack. Spry horror-comedy with still-excellent make-up effects and an absurdist tone, as well as a keen sense of horror movie history and strength in depth in the casting.
After his family is killed, the adult Martin seeks out Mister. Autumnal but impressive sequel to Stake Land, this second part is better on atmosphere than on its lean revenge plot, but is watchable nevertheless.
