The Empty Man (2020, dir. David Prior)

An ex-cop investigates the disappearance of a friend’s teen daughter. Dazzling in parts, this long, uneven but ambitious and compelling horror-ish movie is well worth your time and patience. Genre fans will know where it’s going, but there’s great stuff throughout, and James Badge Dale is as terrific as ever.

Here’s the trailer.

The Dark and the Wicked (2020, Dir. Bryan Bertino)

A brother and sister head home to attend to their dying father and find something far more sinister instead. Well put together and creepy horror that offers some good jump scares, but whose pace may put some off. Some great creepy moments though.
