A documentary crew follows a band of New Zealand vampires over several months. The mock-doc format is the weakest element here, but this is a funny and inventive flick made with real affection and a sense of depth in the characterisations. Recommended.
A realtor finds that the property she is trying to sell is host to a malevolent entity. Its odd structure and unwarranted ending aside, a reasonable entry in the possessed property jumpscare sub-sub-genre. Some neat moments among the standard shenanigans.
A mother’s secret identity may be mixed up with an ancient artefact. Oddball SF/horror that tries to do zombie movie, family secret flick, and an existentialist SF movie all in one. The whole thing collapses under its awkwardness, tho it gains a point for daft ambition.
Siblings journey to the family’s remote holiday home where their brother may be going mad. Not-bad psychological horror which takes an SF/military experiment route than the usual haunting or serial killer options. Falls apart in act 3, tho Larry Fessenden pops up.
A young couple with a baby move into a sublet apartment; things soon go awry. Well-sustained minimalist psychological thriller of the haunting-or-mental-breakdown variety. Effective until the loose plot threads come home to roost.
An artist and her estranged teen daughter battle a demon summoned by the girl. Standard jumpscare shenanigans with some interesting visual moments but hampered by confusing story logic which collapses the enterprise.
A nurse tries to encourage a boy to speak after the death of his mother. Good-looking but slow mystery/horror with a hundred borrowings (everything from The Others to Rebecca) and a straightforward though inevitable resolution.
