Vacationing sisters who take a shark-viewing excursion become trapped underwater. Straightforward and effective survival thriller with horror elements. Does what it can to explore the boundaries of its premise: a sequel soon followed.
Six friends hiking in West Virginia come up against a self-isolating pre-Civil War community. The backwoods franchise takes a folk horror turn away from cannibal shenanigans towards something that’s uneven but interesting in a Midsommar/Welp kinda way. All this plus old hands Matthew Modine and Bill Sage in support.
Graver enlists Alejandro once more; this time to start a war between cartels. A focus on people trafficking rather than drugs second time around; terrifically stylish and well-executed, if flirting with some reactionary ideas.
