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.
A young woman comes to believe her son is not who he claims to be. Smart, well-acted, and great-looking paranoid horror/fantasy with a strong central performance and the skills throughout to do a simple thing well. Lots to enjoy and to admire here. Both director Cronin and star Kerslake are ones to watch. Recommended.
When a standing stone is disturbed, an Irish village is terrorised by an ancient creature. Patchy horror with some interesting folk-horror moments and one impressive stunt, though let down by clunky execution and an especially poor monster.
