10/10 91% Anna and the Apocalypse (2018) A knee-bouncing, zombie cracking adventure that has the guts to put its daring artistic vision forward without compromise. It's sickly sweet and genuinely original. ‐ Starburst

710 90% Climax (2018) A technical masterpiece, and that's not surprising considering Noé's clout and experience. As a story, it's a standard indictment of the nature of modern media culture. ‐ Starburst

8/10 83% The Most Assassinated Woman in the World (La femme la plus assassinée du monde) (2018) The true beauty of The Most Assassinated Woman In The World, however, is its arc. Rather than bequeathing dry instruction on performance history, the wraparound story uses era-specific storytelling techniques to ensure the audience is in on the secret.‐ Starburst

9/10 83% The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot (2018) The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot moulds the hellishly real with the whimsical to get us to question our place in the world. It is malevolent, hopeful and incredibly moving - a fantasy for the ponderous imagination.‐ Starburst

6/10 70% The Ranger (2018) The real star of the show is [director] Jenn Wexler. While the script she co-wrote with Giaco Furino has believability issues, the film's overall tone is ambitious.‐ Starburst

9/10 67% Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich (2018) The Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich's ending is delightfully peculiar, but that's hardly a surprise. It's also setupsville for the sequel. With Fabio Frizzi's famous theme music still ringing in our ears, we're excited already.‐ Starburst

8/10 100% The Shelter (2016) For all its anger and impressive visuals, The Shelter is a meditative piece about moving from confusion to the acceptance of something perhaps cannot be fully understood. ‐ Starburst

7/10 76% Mansfield 66/67 (2017) Mansfield 66/67 is unorthodox and sometimes subtly subversive when poking fun at the glamour we expect of 'the naughty'.‐ Starburst

9/10 No Score Yet Cannibal Fog (2014) Cannibal Fog is a finely mixed, jangling masterpiece of humanity masquerading as merry mayhem. ‐ Starburst

10/10 85% It (2017) IT is horror with heart and high jinks. If taking on a killer clown and all IT's compadres leads to the adventure the Losers have, you'll float, too.‐ Starburst

8/10 87% Better Watch Out (2017) Better Watch Out plays the audience at their own game. It pleasures and punishes them for trying to pre-guess its gifts. It is deeply unnerving and adorably sinister.‐ Starburst

7/10 No Score Yet The Terror of Hallow's Eve (2017) The Terror of Hallow's Eve mixes old-fashioned movie magic with psychologically more daring horror. That said, more monsters don't make things merrier but if the psychology exists, they're real.‐ Starburst

9/10 89% Lowlife (2018) The lustre of Lowlife is that it doesn't pull its punches but finds beauty and a curious humanity in the chaos of the crime-ridden city.‐ Starburst

7/10 25% Eat Locals (2016) Parallels with everything from Shaun of the Dead to What We Do In the Shadows go down a treat. There's even a nice little bit of social class dialogue bubbling under the surface that results in a final and very wry political money shot. ‐ Starburst

6/10 48% Freeheld (2015) It teeters on the edge of camp pretension before whipping out its raison d'etre and being unapologetically political. That said, the sheer amount of bodily fluids displayed before it forecloses means it slightly outstays its welcome.‐ Starburst

7/10 83% Cult of Chucky (2017) Cult of Chucky takes the franchise to its (psycho!)logical conclusion. There is daffy, orange Easter eggs aplenty and enough blood to entertain the (as yet) uninitiated. ‐ Starburst

8/10 No Score Yet My Bloody Banjo (2015) [My Bloody Banjo] has genuinely hugely enjoyable segments.‐ Starburst

9/10 No Score Yet The Killing of America (1982) The Killing of America manages to be harrowing today as its stark warnings have gone unheeded. The killers it showcases have gone on to become pop culture and the editing of them alongside scenes of violence truly cuts to the quick. ‐ Starburst

8/10 No Score Yet Ibiza Undead (2016) What it lacks in some seasoned performers it makes up for in pure, putrefied pizzazz. Yet, for all its 'ard man posturing, it is an equal opportunities stalkathon and is all the more intriguing for it.‐ Starburst

8/10 No Score Yet Hostage to the Devil (2016) Hostage to the Devil fascinates with its focus on a renegade, dinner-party darling exorcist and the social factors that made him a star. ‐ Starburst

9/10 No Score Yet Fury of the Demon (La Rage du Démon) (2016) Fury of the Demon works wonderfully because it presents a little known aspect of the life of a man who changed the world to an audience it expects to be intelligent.‐ Starburst

9/10 83% The Lesson (2015) Thoughtful and oddly poignant.‐ Starburst

9/10 57% Jeruzalem (2016) With their tale of petrified friends, governmental gods and roaming murder, Jeruzalem is a terrific and terrible vision of what, for all we know, may well be.‐ Starburst

8/10 33% Demonic (2014) The Will Cannon-directed movie is a whodunit come haunted house caper come satanic stormer and despite these being familiar themes, the actors and editing ensure that it's a scream.‐ Starburst

10/10 82% These Final Hours (2015) It offers the action of a balls-out sci-fi while grabbing the audience by its character development and has cinematography so beautiful it will make you feel grand to be alive. These Final Hours is a gorgeous call to humanity.‐ Starburst
