3/5 36% Snatched (2017) Schumer's mix of brutal honesty and brilliant timing ekes every last titter out of Katie Dippold's solidly witty, sometimes hilarious script, and Hawn is an endearing if occasionally passive-aggressive foil ...‐ Radio Times

5/5 27% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) Ritchie's tale of warlocks, Londinium docks and 2000 smoking arrows is undoubtedly his finest and most commanding movie to date.‐ Radio Times

2/5 84% The Transfiguration (2017) With no supernatural elements, only the barest neo-realist approach to the horror, this nihilistic meditation on teenage angst and the defence mechanisms needed to protect the vulnerable spirit will disappoint genre lovers.‐ Radio Times

5/5 83% Mulholland Drive (2001) With a sensational performance by Watts, it's a triple-strength masterpiece that will more than satisfy the die-hard Lynch mob and may even gain a receptive new audience for the Sultan of Strange.‐ Radio Times

4/5 67% The Fate of the Furious (2017) Probably the best and most complete thrill-ride since Mad Max: Fury Road.‐ Radio Times

3/5 24% Table 19 (2017) An easy-going romantic comedy with uneven charms, this lightweight affair occupies that small space between John Hughes nostalgia and My Big Fat Greek Wedding vitality.‐ Radio Times

4/5 90% Raw (2017) Genre fans with strong stomachs will find this a memorably tasty morsel. Those with more delicate dispositions should probably wait for the American remake.‐ Radio Times

3/5 31% Don't Knock Twice (2017) It's essentially the intuitive accuracy of shattered Sackhoff's performance that makes this Old Dark House chestnut worth catching.‐ Radio Times

3/5 87% The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016) An engaging combination of nerve-jangling suspense, graphic swerves into unexpected shock, queasy surgical procedures and the blackest humour.‐ Radio Times

3/5 46% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) There isn't an original bone in its generic body, but this undistinguished reboot of the popular 1990s TV show has enough colourful adventure, upbeat action and genial thrills to satisfy its target audience.‐ Radio Times

3/5 39% Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie (1995) If your children are feeling nostalgic, then this colourful junk will while away a couple of very mindless hours.‐ Radio Times

4/5 71% Beauty and the Beast (2017) Condon (who has musical pedigree with Dreamgirls) is clearly having fun throughout his ambitious flight of chocolate-box imagination.‐ Radio Times

2/5 67% The Chamber (2016) The feature debut of director Ben Parker is a busy if ultimately tedious existential thriller, though he does show a talent for keeping things visually interesting with this high-concept, tight-space tale.‐ Radio Times

3/5 42% A Cure For Wellness (2017) Madder than a box of frogs - or should that be an isolation chamber of eels? - director Gore Verbinski's rather meandering supernatural fantasy remains an elegant elixir-of-life shocker.‐ Radio Times

3/5 35% Resident Evil: The Final Chapter (2017) If this is, indeed, the last in the record-breaking sci-fi horror series then original writer/director Paul WS Anderson ends his video-game franchise in satisfying high style.‐ Radio Times

3/5 75% Split (2017) Shyamalan gets his Hitchcock groove on in this deviously playful horror thriller that satisfies as a companion piece to his earlier, more successful works.‐ Radio Times

3/5 18% Underworld: Blood Wars (2017) The goth fetish horror series carries on regardless in this agreeable fifth episode, the first from a female director.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Jan 13, 2017
3/5 85% Silence (2017) Silence would benefit from being shorter than its 161 minutes and it does become a tad repetitious, but Scorsese is clearly unloading his psyche in a very entrenched, passionate and specific way.‐ Radio Times

3/5 17% Assassin's Creed (2016) Coupled with the Parkour-inspired stunts Kurzel insists on keeping the CGI in check for the feel of an old school adventure and executes the action with a great deal of care and attention to detail.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Dec 20, 2016
3/5 99% The Wailing (Goksung) (2016) The well-created atmospheres of bleak desolation, shivery seat-edged thrills and sheer-intensity of spirit-world dabbling paper over the more nonsensical sections of the scattershot narrative that does eventually build to quite a chilling crescendo.‐ Radio Times

5/5 73% Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) Not only opens up a whole innovative universe of dark cinematic surprise but also exciting new territory for Potterphiles as the wizarding world moves from sedate rural England to the helter skelter jazz age of prohibition era New York.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Nov 17, 2016
3/5 21% Rupture (2017) Intriguing and different enough to earn its stripes in the transformation genre.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2016
3/5 22% Let's Be Evil (2016) [A] cautionary tale that tackles modern schooling issues and refreshes terror-tot fiction like Village of the Damned.‐ Radio Times

3/5 83% Ouija: Origin of Evil (2016) The vintage feel, complete with old-fashioned titles, period visual style and even fake reel change marks, makes for a satisfying if bloodless shocker, a vast improvement on the first.‐ Radio Times

5/5 90% The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957) Williams gives a sensitive portrayal of a man hounded by the media and consigned to a freak's world, whose descent into being and nothingness provides a memorable climax.‐ Radio Times

3/5 64% The Bat Whispers (1930) [It] is by far the best movie adaptation of the stock spoof horror play set in a creepy mansion where masked menace lurks. It's also a superior mystery chiller in its own right. ‐ Radio Times

5/5 88% Dead Alive (1993) This horrendously funny gross-out shocker from Lord of the Rings and King Kong director Peter Jackson is a brilliant black comedy and the ultimate gore movie.‐ Radio Times

3/5 82% The Invisible Man Returns (1940) The first sequel to the Claude Rains classic, while more modestly scaled than its predecessor, still receives a first-class treatment from director Joe May and, in many instances, surpasses the visual magic of the original.‐ Radio Times

3/5 83% Dr. Cyclops (1940) The standard plot now looks hackneyed, and the cueball-headed Dekker is stereotypically crazy. However, the impressive array of oversize props make this a lot of fun to watch.‐ Radio Times

3/5 78% Twins of Evil (1971) Touches of ethereal gothic atmosphere and a neat funereal flamboyancy make this slick shock package a cut above the rest.‐ Radio Times

4/5 89% The Beast With Five Fingers (1946) Lorre literally steals the show with a masterfully bravura performance in a superior slice of psychological horror.‐ Radio Times

4/5 91% Son of Frankenstein (1939) The third instalment of Universal's classic series features Boris Karloff's last fling as the Monster and is a superior shocker all round.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2016
3/5 87% The Devil-Doll (1936) The scares may be dated, but the miniaturised special effects, relying on oversized props, are still enthralling, and the offbeat fantasy atmosphere Browning expertly conjures up is highly unusual.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Oct 18, 2016
4/5 95% The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1923) It's for [Chaney's] inimitable genius alone that this sprawling saga is now most fondly remembered.‐ Radio Times

3/5 64% The Greasy Strangler (2016) The unique outrage oozing from every slippery frame is made palatable by sheer gonzo lunacy.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2016
3/5 89% Blood Father (2016) Not to be taken seriously at any point, this is just a crowd-pleasingly nasty revenge saga, which builds to a surprising and unexpectedly downbeat desert showdown.‐ Radio Times

3/5 69% Swiss Army Man (2016) The film-makers are consistently inventive in ways you can't un-see, with images you truly won't forget.‐ Radio Times

4/5 84% The Girl With All the Gifts (2017) It startles and chills before McCarthy offers genuine hope for humankind to define the best and most unusual zombie movie since 28 Days Later.‐ Radio Times

3/5 35% Blair Witch (2016) There's really nothing that special here, but an upgraded arsenal of equipment (drone camera, GPS, etc.) produces a far more visceral experience.‐ Radio Times
Read More | Posted Sep 16, 2016
4/5 90% The Clan (El Clan) (2016) Related in gritty Scorsese fashion with striking Hollywood style, and revealing Trapero's top-notch storytelling prowess and expert technical flair, the movie builds to a truly stunning climax.‐ Radio Times

5/5 97% Kubo and the Two Strings (2016) An entrancing marvel of peerless stop-motion puppetry and creative CGI, this visually dazzling fable woven around richly imagined metaphors for love, loneliness and loss elevates Laika Entertainment to Pixar level.‐ Radio Times
