Now Available to Stream or Buy – Greta

Greta is not Neil Jordans finest hour. With the promise of the first half, ultimately let down by the lack of creative vision inherent in the second half. However, Moretz and Huppert save Greta from obscurity. Huppert stealing the limelight with a delicious, often bonkers and psychotic character study that keeps you glued to the screen.

In Fabric – Review

Peter Strickland’s fourth film, maintains the aesthetic of his previous pictures, while taking a story that plays homage to M.R. James, injecting it with B-Movie horror and lashings of dark humour. In Fabric is Strickland at his creative best. Offering a completely unique visual and auditory journey unlike anything else in todays cinema landscape.While just like his previous films, In …

Ma – Review

The latest addition to the Blumhouse horror stable, dovetails revenge thriller with the classic teen horror format. Creating a hybrid of themes, that at times echos 1992’s The Hand That Rocks the Cradle, and at others 1997’s I Know What You Did Last Summer.

Us

They are us in this smart horror that plays with economic divides in modern society, whilst offering enough shocks and twists to keep die hard horror fans engaged. Jordan Peele’s debut picture Get Out provided audiences with a brilliantly constructed horror, interwoven with messages on race, slavery and the Afro-America experience. For many directors this would have been hard to …

Last Ferry

Queer thriller and horror is underserved in filmmaking, often only covered in low budget, low quality porn/horror films. Last Ferry therefore starts from a promising premise; a thriller first and foremost, that happens to have gay characters. Echoing Stranger by the Lake, Rear Window and What Lies Beneath, there is much to praise in the original vision. Joseph is a …
