4/5 65% The Little Stranger (2018) While The Little Stranger may divide audiences, it's very sharp indeed.‐ SciFiNow

62% Dead Night (2018) With good performances, great atmosphere and plenty of gory surprises, horror fans should definitely give it a chance.‐ SciFiNow

2/5 33% The Predator (2018) The Predator feels like a haphazardly assembled and overflowing buffet plate, and how much you enjoy it will depend on your ability to deal with its whiplash-wild inconsistency in tone and missed opportunities.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 87% Upgrade (2018) A highly entertaining B-movie that's smarter than it looks, and there's a real sense of glee both from the writer-director and the star that makes it a lot of gruesome fun.‐ SciFiNow

3/5 17% The Darkest Minds (2018) It's visually and emotionally warm and it's refreshing to see a story that's both timely (children caged by their government and abandoned by their elders) and ultimately optimistic.‐ SciFiNow

87% The Man Who Killed Hitler and Then The Bigfoot (2018) This film proves to be something special.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 94% The Endless (2018) This is another hugely impressive effort from two of the most exciting filmmakers working in the genre right now. Take a chance and take the trip, you won't regret it.‐ SciFiNow

5/5 89% Hereditary (2018) Profoundly disturbing and absolutely terrifying, Hereditary will haunt you for days.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 100% The Old Dark House (1932) The brilliant cast, excellent set design and camerawork makes for something that verges on horror comedy in an unexpectedly delightful way.‐ SciFiNow

3/5 No Score Yet Incarnation (Inkarnacija) (2016) The revelation of who is doing this to our hero and why is genuinely surprising and there are some solid chase sequences and impressively muscular fight sequences. Incarnation will keep you guessing until its big reveal.‐ SciFiNow

5/5 No Score Yet Threads (1984) It's perfectly crafted, totally human and so completely harrowing you'll think that you'll probably never want to watch it again.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted May 15, 2018
3/5 38% The Strangers: Prey At Night (2018) The pacing is a problem, it doesn't have the raw fear of its predecessor and some of the bigger choices may alienate that film's fans, but The Strangers: Prey At Night ends up being a satisfying slasher sequel that works best when it cuts loose.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 84% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) It's a little unwieldy, there are slow patches and the odd misstep, there are so many characters that your favourite might feel hard done by, and it is definitely Part 1... but the fact is that Infinity War is pretty damn thrilling.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 92% Cure (1998) There's no escape from something that's always there and the film's morbid, doom-laden atmosphere will envelop you.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 90% Big Fish & Begonia (2018) As heavy and occasionally confusing as things get, there are wonderful moments of levity and eccentricity.‐ SciFiNow

2/5 14% Blumhouse's Truth or Dare (2018) If you're looking for a disposable teen horror, Truth Or Dare could be the Friday night nonsense you're looking for, but you can absolutely do better.‐ SciFiNow

2/5 52% Rampage (2018) Rampage can't pull it off.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Apr 11, 2018
4/5 95% A Quiet Place (2018) You can't deny the film's effectiveness. Krasinski has crafted a very scary and surprisingly affecting horror movie that will keep you on the edge of your seat.‐ SciFiNow

2/5 43% Pacific Rim Uprising (2018) If it were a standalone film it would get that third star, but as a Pacific Rim sequel it's disappointing.‐ SciFiNow

3/5 51% Tomb Raider (2018) This film clearly aims to be the first in a new franchise, and, on the strength of this, it will be‐ SciFiNow

4/5 75% Mom and Dad (2018) Mom And Dad never quite crosses a line but it definitely enjoys getting close to it.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Mar 6, 2018
5/5 87% Annihilation (2018) That verdant blend of Giger and Carpenter is fantastic, but what will really stay with you is the effect all this has on the characters.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 83% Mohawk (2018) It is a satisfying thriller but, for the most part, Mohawk wants to show us the hopelessness and cruelty of this conflict and this sorry chapter of American history.‐ SciFiNow

1/5 No Score Yet Black Creek (2017) Horror fans have seen all of this before, and they've seen it done better.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2018
5/5 92% The Shape of Water (2017) Creating a convincing romance between a woman and a fishman is probably the film's biggest challenge, but sensitive performances ... make it not just believable but compelling.‐ SciFiNow

1/5 26% Bright (2017) Bright wants to say something about racial prejudice and it wants to be a badass R-rated genre movie. Those good intentions are evident but the end result is a two hour-long, tedious, uninspired slog.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Dec 21, 2017
5/5 91% Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) The emotional pay-offs are huge, the visuals are stunning, the performances are brilliant and, even as it eagerly explores the darkness, The Last Jedi never loses sight of its heart.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Dec 12, 2017
3/5 63% The Unseen (2017) The final act stumbles once or twice, but it's engaging, tense, the conclusion is earned and affecting, and [Jasmine] Hyde's superb performance carries it through any wobbles.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Dec 11, 2017
4/5 92% Most Beautiful Island (2017) It's so exciting to see a film with such a firm grip on its audience's collective throat.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Dec 1, 2017
3/5 40% Justice League (2017) There's a sense of laying the groundwork, with new characters to be introduced, new attitudes to establish, and a new team to bring to life. On those three counts, the film gets the job done.‐ SciFiNow

2/5 13% Geostorm (2017) If you think you know what you're getting with Geostorm, well, you're probably right. It's big, it's stupid, it's got people outrunning enormous weather events, and it's bad in most of the ways that matter.‐ SciFiNow

1/5 8% The Snowman (2017) While there is a myriad of issues to pick apart, the most disappointing is that there is simply no atmosphere. ‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Oct 12, 2017
4/5 87% Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Blade Runner 2049 is excellent. Hampton Fancher and Michael Green's script continues to push the themes and questions of the original and finds a new angle from which to do so. ‐ SciFiNow

3/5 85% It (2017) IT is pure popcorn horror: crowdpleasing, gruesome and guaranteed to make you jump. It just may not crawl under your skin like you want it to.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2017
4/5 74% The Limehouse Golem (2017) Whether you guess the identity of the Golem or not, this is a richly rewarding riff on penny dreadful horrors with a real wit and bite to it, and it's a wonderfully chilling treat.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Aug 31, 2017
2/5 16% The Dark Tower (2017) It's a truly rare thing to come out of a summer blockbuster wishing it were longer, but in its rush to get down to the bare essentials, The Dark Tower loses too much of what makes it unique.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Aug 16, 2017
4/5 91% A Ghost Story (2017) It's a little inaccessible, perhaps, with long sequences of reflective silence, but A Ghost Story has a real emotional power that is sincerely haunting.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Aug 11, 2017
3/5 70% Annabelle: Creation (2017) It's well-directed, it's well-acted, and it's genuinely creepy while offering some great jump scares too. ‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Aug 9, 2017
4/5 76% The Ghoul (2017) The Ghoul proves to be a dark, atmospheric and surprisingly moving portrayal of a crumbling psyche.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2017
4/5 87% It Comes At Night (2017) The film's wilful ambiguity will doubtless prove frustrating for many, but this is a truly nightmarish tale, as real people in a terrible situation make snap decisions that lead to devastating consequences. It's gripping, terrifying, and heartbreaking.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2017
5/5 93% War for the Planet of the Apes (2017) This is a brilliant technical achievement but it's more than that. It's a potent, political and moving work of SF with a stunning performance from Andy Serkis.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Jun 30, 2017
2/5 15% The Mummy (2017) There are one or two fun moments, particularly when Boutella gets to cut loose, but she's a monster in dire need of more screentime and a much better film.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Jun 9, 2017
3/5 69% Brain Damage (1988) It's the mix that so many other low-budget schlock-hound filmmakers have gone for, but so few make it work. It's imperfect, tasteless, but hugely watchable.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Jun 2, 2017
4/5 78% Phenomena (Creepers) (1985) Phenomena may not be as consistent as Argento's masterpieces but it's frequently fantastic and deserves a reappraisal.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted May 31, 2017
5/5 94% The Red Turtle (La tortue rouge) (2017) It's a simple and profound story that is both intimate and universal. This is a beautiful film that must be seen.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted May 30, 2017
3/5 66% Alien: Covenant (2017) It's a well-made, well-acted monster movie with some interesting ideas that should hold up to repeat viewings, and while its uneven second half stops it from being a complete success, it's a lot of horrible fun.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted May 8, 2017
3/5 53% The Belko Experiment (2017) As grisly entertainment, it works, and it does have a mean bite, but it doesn't quite live up to its potential.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Apr 21, 2017
5/5 91% Raw (2017) It's savage but heartfelt, gruesome but wickedly funny, and as Justine is forced to find her own way through this nightmare, it's moving too. This is essential viewing.‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2017
4/5 91% A Dark Song (2017) Although Gavin makes us wait for the horror elements, they are highly effective once they arrive. ‐ SciFiNow
Read More | Posted Apr 7, 2017
4/5 86% The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016) There are some problems, but this is an intelligent, unpredictable and very well-made horror mystery that subverts the expected genre clichés and really does get under your skin.‐ SciFiNow
