  • The Fog

    The Fog

    ★★★

    The Fog is a 1980 film directed and written by John Carpenter, and is another horror film to add to his work. This film immediately introduces a mysterious atmosphere, and begins slowly paced – gradually revealing what the unease is that the viewer is first introduced to with its haunting soundtrack, and a classic campfire ghost story to kick things off.

    The Fog boasts some impressive direction from John Carpenter, who clearly shows his experience in the horror genre. He…

  • Thor: Ragnarok

    Thor: Ragnarok

    ★★★★½

    Thor Ragnarok is an immensely fun, stylish film that brings a new sense of originality to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, raising the bar for future MCEU instalments.

  • Split

    Split

    ★★★★

    Split is a forcefully suspenseful film that keeps viewers guessing just like the main characters are with it’s fantastic use of the mystery surrounding the lead antagonist, in which James McAvoy brings a terrifying performance.

  • Looper

    Looper

    ★★★★½

    A solid film that takes a known premise in time travel and transforms it into something very original to deliver one of the best sci-fi films of the decade.

  • The Pledge

    The Pledge

    ★★★★

    A slow paced thriller that disguises itself as a detective/police drama but is actually uncovered as a psychological character study - which is elevated from it's powerful, but subtle performance from Jack Nicholson.

  • Lake Mungo

    Lake Mungo

    ★★★½

    Lake Mungo is an unnerving film that makes best use of its documentary style to achieve a realistic feel - which makes it all the more scarier.

  • The Road

    The Road

    ★★★★

    The road is a depressing, grim film that does a perfect job of setting it's miserable atmosphere, which is bolstered with even more realism through the fantastic performances from Viggo Mortensen and Kodi-Smit-McPhee.

  • American Psycho

    American Psycho

    ★★★★★

    Christian Bale delivers an outstanding, cynical performance as Patrick Bateman - creating an iconic character in a smart, original film that is far too underrated.

  • Blade Runner 2049

    Blade Runner 2049

    ★★★★★

    Blade Runner 2049 is a visually spectacular masterpiece that favours ideas and themes instead of mindless action. This film is not for everyone, but deserves to be seen by many. This is science fiction at its best and this film might even surpass the masterpiece that came before it - it is that good.
