Oakley, Windsor and Martini all do enough good work here however to keep us eager for their next outings. Review

There's certainly plenty here to make you sit up in your seat, but unless you have some prior investment in the world and people portrayed here, you might find yourself giving up on trying to keep track of its plot. Review

Its intriguing cultural context aside, The Vigil does little to set itself apart from the average horror movie of its ilk. Review

It's a shame Impetigore goes out on such a whimper, because there really is some great work on display here. Review

American cinema rarely gives us films like Clemency, which dare to focus on the internal life of a complicated character against the backdrop of what should be a very uncomplicated moral issue. Review

Buñuel in the Labyrinth of the Turtles offers more than enough thematic depth to satisfy Buñuel enthusiasts and a general adult audience. Review

Aside from an extra layer of professionalism, there's little to distinguish Lake of Death from the dozens of cheap American cabin in the woods horror movies that clog the VOD drain every year. Review

Open 24 Hours never quite sinks its teeth into the potentially dark, probing character study it might have been, as it's more concerned with getting to the eventual bloodshed. Said violence is relatively well mounted, but it's something of an anti-climax after the patiently unnerving build-up that gets us to that point. Review

But for all the good work around her, this is very much the Tuppence Middleton show. Abby is one of the more intriguing protagonists of recent years... Review

O'Connor's film has the sort of abrupt denouement that would be perfect if this were the pilot for a TV show, but as a movie it needs a little more room to breathe. Review

It's a middling addition to the sub-genre, but there's enough to keep devotees of Animal Attacks cinema mildly amused. Review

Mortimer, Nevin and Heathcote are all excellent here, and the fractured relationship between the women is laid out in a manner as ambiguous as the nature of Edna's mental state. Review

But for all the existing sci-fi/horror ingredients Brown throws into his narrative pot, he manages to make The Beach House a distinctively flavoured chowder of his own. Review

With an A-list star and a globe-trotting narrative, The Old Guard has the trappings of the modern tentpole action movie, but it's very much straight to video schlock. Review

The central idea here has bags of potential, and if played well it could result in a movie that's essentially John Carpenter's The Thing transplanted to the confines of a suburban family home. In Hong-Sun's film, the paranoid tension between the family members is never mined for the sort of thrills and suspense such a dynamic seems custom made for... Review

Like the contest itself, the run time needs trimming as there’s a definite lull in the middle, but the infectious charm throughout is impossible not to get caught up in. Fans of Eurovision will be delighted to see some iconic cameos rising like a phoenix during a high-energy musical medley. Review

There is very little editorialising in A Regular Woman, and, although the subject is gut wrenchingly emotive, for the most part the film is lacking in the bogus worthiness which infect films of a similar ilk. Review
