T-Meter Title | Year
2/5 57% The Commuter (2018) Probably just-about watchable to the right crowd, a totally muddled second half makes this one easily the worst of Liam Neeson and Jaume Collet-Serra's many collaborations. - HeyUGuys EDIT

4/5 77% The Ranger (2018) A short, sharp and insanely fun new entry into the slasher canon, offering up one of the genre's best antagonists in years. - HeyUGuys EDIT

3/5 63% Dead Night (2018) Easily one of the most unhinged films you'll see all year, but almost too much so. - HeyUGuys EDIT

3/5 67% The Cleaning Lady (2018) A searingly tense build-up peters out into something far too generic to get excited about. - HeyUGuys EDIT

5/5 53% Incident In a Ghost Land (Ghostland) (2018) A totally different animal to Laugier's Martyrs - and with much bigger teeth - but equally troubling and difficult to watch. An absolute must for fans of the genre's darkest side. - HeyUGuys EDIT

4/5 75% Book of Monsters (2019) Cheap, cheerful and tonally on point, this feels like the crazy little British monster movie that could. - HeyUGuys EDIT

4/5 74% The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot (2019) Predator written by the Coen Brothers. Definitely not what you think it is, but a killer script and a career-defining lead turn from Sam Elliott makes it more than worthwhile all the same. - HeyUGuys EDIT

5/5 89% Bodied (2018) Even if you have absolutely no affinity for battle rap what-so-ever, Bodied deserves to be seen - an endlessly brave deep-dive into the power of language, delivered as a full-on execution of 2018 culture. - HeyUGuys EDIT

5/5 100% One Cut of the Dead (Kamera o tomeru na!) (2017) A totally new breed of DIY-genre movie, built on endless amounts of love for the form and proving that there's plenty of room for feel-good laughs amongst all the flesh-eating action. - HeyUGuys EDIT

4/5 89% Possum (2018) A quietly nasty gem that'll make you re-think British horror altogether. - HeyUGuys EDIT

3/5 78% Anna and the Apocalypse (2018) With a set-up this maddeningly good, Anna and the Apocalypse deserves to be a whole lot more consistently fun than it actually is. - HeyUGuys EDIT

4/5 91% Mandy (2018) Cosmatos fires beyond the synth-scores and VHS-visuals of the new-80s genre wave, delivering a properly heavy, full-blooded actioner, with a lot more to say than you'd expect. - HeyUGuys EDIT

4/5 67% Beyond Skyline (2017) A mindblowingly silly, seriously extravagant and really mostly un-called for experience, but one the right audience will have a totally wild and unexpected blast with. - HeyUGuys EDIT

3/5 100% Imitation Girl (2018) Although the higher order thinking that sits just below the surface throughout isn't always entirely clear, it remains, for the most part, emotionally gripping. - HeyUGuys EDIT

4/5 92% Radius (2017) Horror hounds, sci-fi fans and even just those chasing a good old-fashioned mystery will find a lot to love in Radius. - HeyUGuys EDIT

3/5 75% Freehold (Two Pigeons) (2017) There's a very well-managed use of space, and Botet's performance has a lot more behind it than meets the eye, but otherwise it's a film that exists almost purely to show off a bunch of unsuspecting pranks. - HeyUGuys EDIT

4/5 92% A Dark Song (2017) A Dark Song is a ridiculously strong and beautifully acted piece of work, but one that deserves a much more satisfying conclusion. - HeyUGuys EDIT

5/5 82% Tragedy Girls (2017) Both Tragedy Girls, and its fiendishly loveable starring duo, happily join the pantheon of teen movie greats; a genuine cult hit in the making. - HeyUGuys EDIT

4/5 64% Victor Crowley (2017) In doubling down on the humour and keeping the practical effects at the forefront, Adam Green has once again delivered a hugely satisfying, fan-centric slasher with a lot of personality. - HeyUGuys EDIT

5/5 74% 68 Kill (2017) Genre movies don't get more thrilling than this bag of fireworks - a total wild-eyed thrill ride hung on three of the best female characters of the year. - HeyUGuys EDIT

2/5 31% Leatherface (2017) Although French directing duo Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury add some extra griminess and the central mystery is clever enough, Leatherface never truly escapes just how pointless and misaligned its whole set-up is. - HeyUGuys EDIT

3/5 38% Death Note (2017) Everything from the style to the substance is spot on here and Wingard shepherds in his very different vision of the manga beautifully, it's just crammed into too small a time-space to really make an effect. - HeyUGuys EDIT

4/5 77% Cult of Chucky (2017) Another sure-fire cult hit from Don Mancini that takes Chucky to terrifying new heights, even if it is missing the ending it deserves. - HeyUGuys EDIT
