    Janiak has succeeded in making what she calls ‘an elevated genre story’, yet much of its frightening psychological ambiguity is erased by a disappointingly conventional ending.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Nigel Floyd
    The casting of comedian Koechner as the sleazy host is a masterstroke, but all four actors relish the salty dialogue and farcical cruelty, as the film moves towards a bleak but satisfying ending.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 40 Nigel Floyd
    If you make it as far as the obvious, disappointing denouement, you might be left asking yourself if the filmmakers’ abstract style is better suited to short films.

    Against all the odds, Stake Land director Jim Mickle has cooked up a controlled, affecting ‘companion piece’ that honours the Mexican original while deepening its themes.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 40 Nigel Floyd
    Devil’s Due spends far too much time on home movie footage of likeable newlyweds Zach (Zach Gilford) and Samantha McCall (Allison Miller), while neglecting to scare the bejesus out of us.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 80 Nigel Floyd
    Big Bad Wolves requires a high tolerance for pain, but its wicked humour and oblique satire rip open Israel's paranoid, militarised system like a jagged saw blade.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 60 Nigel Floyd
    Softley negotiates layers of deceit with skill, but an uncharacteristic visual and narrative tightness leaves one wondering what might have been.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Nigel Floyd
    Lovering’s taut direction and editor Jon Amos’s skilfully modulated cutting wring the maximum suspense from cinematographer David Katznelson’s multi-camera set-ups, tapping into deep-rooted psychological and primal fears.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 20 Nigel Floyd
    For all but the most forgiving horror fans, this is a lazy, stupid and incoherent failure.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 40 Nigel Floyd
    The students keep filming when it is insane to do so, and an avalanche of speculative tosh smothers everything except our mocking laughter.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 40 Nigel Floyd
    The film's would-be subversive ideas about the kneejerk appeal of social violence get lost in the mix.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 80 Nigel Floyd
    American Mary nods savvily to the ‘body horror’ of ‘Audition’ and ‘Dead Ringers’ but still possesses a truly original, deeply disturbing vision.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Nigel Floyd
    Despite much old-school splatter, it’s seldom frightening and oddly unfunny.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Nigel Floyd
    From the moment a pair of workmen crack open a seventeenth-century plague pit and unleash the undead, Matthias Hoene’s lairy, gory zombie comedy delivers.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Nigel Floyd
    An enjoyable if slightly innocuous biopic based on the brief life and short-lived fame of teen rock'n'roll idol Richie Valens.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Nigel Floyd
    The shattering downbeat ending is well earned and genuinely shocking.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 80 Nigel Floyd
    A serious, intelligent and disturbing horror film.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 100 Nigel Floyd
    An extraordinarily inventive fantasy in which schoolboy Warnock is rescued from a dull suburban existence by a band of renegade dwarfs, who emerge from his wardrobe and whisk him off on an incredible journey through time and space. Sometime Monty Python animator Gilliam fills the screen with bizarre images, and directs with a breathless ingenuity.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 40 Nigel Floyd
    Unfortunately, the political parallel between the ideological repression of Baby Doc's regime and the stultifying effects of the zombifying fluid is only sketchily developed, leaving us with a series of striking but isolated set pieces.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 80 Nigel Floyd
    Uniquely weird, subtly macabre, and utterly compelling.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Nigel Floyd
    Unfortunately, Reynolds the director is as uncertain about the tone of the picture as Reynolds the star is about his screen persona. So while the action veers from lightweight action to extreme violence, Reynolds' character vacillates between macho tough guy and sensitive, vulnerable leading man.
