Safety Not Guaranteed (2012, dir. Colin Trevorrow)

A reporter and two interns investigate a classified advert promising time travel. Lo-fi comedy that doesn’t outstay its welcome. Charming enough, with just a hint of sci-fi, and with fine performances all round.

The Lazarus Effect (2015, dir. David Gelb)

Attempts to create a serum to reanimate the dead go predictably awry. Flatliners meets Lucy in this by-the-numbers lab-bound horror/thriller in which a decent cast try their best to get through a rote script.
