The Veil (2016, dir. Phil Joanou)

A child survivor of a cult mass suicide returns to the site; as an adult with a documentary crew. There’s some good stuff here – not least in Thomas Jane’s rockstar performance as a Jim Jones-ish messiah figure – but the narrative is messy throughout, and the washed-out visuals are an affectation too far.

The Atticus Institute (2015, dir. Chris Sparling)

A documentary account of 1970s ESP tests revealing a case of demonic possession. Well-handled for the first two acts, though loses its way in the third. Well-acted throughout, though, and provides a few good jumps and arresting images.

Insidious: Chapter 3 (2015, dir. Leigh Whannell)

Part 3 is a prequel, offering backstory on Elise, and her team-up with Specs and Tucker, plus another demonic yarn. Lots of jump scares, handled well enough if you like this sort of thing, with series screenwriter/actor Whannell now elevated to director.

Anna [AKA The Offering / The Faith of Anna Waters] (2016, dir. Kelvin Tong)

A young woman investigates her sister’s suicide. Cluttered Singapore-set horror pic, mashing up elements from Ring and The Exorcist. Plenty of jump-scares, too many ideas (albeit some of them interesting), but not much sense, and some weak-sauce acting.
