Before I Wake (2016, dir. Mike Flanagan)

A bereaved couple’s new foster son’s dreams – and nightmares – can come true. Atypical jumpscare horror which morphs into something a little more touchy-feely. Not for all tastes, but well-directed by the talented Flanagan.

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.
