In The Tall Grass (2019, dir. Vincenzo Natali)

A pregnant woman and her brother are lured into a field of tall grass. This expansion of the Stephen King/Joe Hill novella begins well, but unravels when fresh material is introduced. Intriguing hints in the original are under-explored, and what’s new confuses rather than deepens. A disappointment, not least from this talented writer/director.

Haunter (2013, dir. Vincenzo Natali)

A teenager finds she and her family are reliving the same day, and might be ghosts. Slight but effective supernatural yarn, held together by good performances and solid direction, though it yields few surprises.
