Seven members of a Texas militia meet at their headquarters in the aftermath of a mass shooting. Excellent and absorbing single-location thriller, which wears its touches of Pinter lightly. A hugely impressive debut feature; highly recommended.
Four friends visit an escape room; except they’re trapped with a malevolent entity. Low-budget horror that riffs neatly on a current trend, and works well to hide its many borrowings (everything from Hellraiser to Saw). Not great at all, but some interesting moments.
A weapons deal goes bad. A contrived but slick, funny, and thoroughly entertaining action/horror hybrid that makes no bones about its B-movie borrowings. Everyone involved is clearly having fun; Wheatley’s best film to date.
