    The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

    ★★★½

    The second Conjuring sequel is a classically creepy story whose strong atmosphere picks up the slack for its over-the-top elements. The film has the good filmmaking of the core entries of the series despite James Wan being absent from the driver’s seat.

    The story begins with the Warren couple investigating a family struggling with demon possession. After their initial attempt to help goes horribly wrong, the paranormal investigators begin to suspect that a curse has been laid on the family…

  • Zack Snyder's Justice League

    Zack Snyder's Justice League

    ★★★

    Zack Snyder’s cut of Justice League is a visually stunning epic which transcends the boundaries of space, time and reality. It’s also self-indulgent and grinds on for four hours with no regard for pacing, making it overall a flawed but interesting addition to the superhero canon.

    The plot picks up after the events of BVS and the death of Superman. In the heart of the Amazons’ kingdom, a computer known as the Mother Box comes to life after centuries of…

  • The Wicker Man

    The Wicker Man

    ★★★★★

    The Wicker Man is a dreamlike, horrifying experience. The tone of the film is expertly managed; up until the ending it could almost be a comedy, but those last 15 minutes have some of the most intense dread ever put on screen.

    The story follows Sergeant Howie as he travels to the remote Scottish island of Summerisle to investigate the disappearance of a young girl. He arrives to find a society which has reverted to pre-Christian rituals; paganism flourishes and…

  • Luca

    Luca

    ★★★★

    Luca is a movie which captures the charm of childhood friendships despite the main characters being half-fish, half-human.

    The titular Luca is a young sea-monster; a society of peaceful creatures who live off the coast of Italy. His curiosity about the land world is awakened when he meets Alberto, a more confident sea monster who lives on an island and dreams of owning his own Vespa (really). The pair meet the enthusiastic human Giulia, and all three scheme to win…

  • The Fly

    The Fly

    ★★★★★

    The Fly blends horror, romance and existential drama into something poetic and tragic. The story goes far beyond its B-movie premise while remaining a pure shot of gruesome 80s Cronenberg.

    The plot is similar to the original 1950s science fiction film, although the execution is very different. Seth Brundle is a brilliant scientist working on a teleportation device which could make all other forms of transport obsolete. After becoming involved with a journalist and her scheming boss an accident occurs…

  • Shaun of the Dead

    Shaun of the Dead

    ★★★★★

    Shaun of the Dead is one of the greatest modern horror comedies and an even better hangover movie than The Hangover.

    The plot subverts a rom-com set-up by giving it a Romero twist. Shaun is a slacker who is stuck in a dead-end-job and living with unemployed school friend Ed. After splitting up with his girlfriend and a night of heavy drinking he vows to turn his life around, but unfortunately a zombie outbreak happens to occur the next day…
