3/5 No Score Yet Reborn (2018) Great emotional performances from Crampton and newcomer Gilbert help Reborn rise above its cliched kills and dialogue. A traumatic ordeal forms the basis for an interesting contemporary spin on two classics - Frankenstein and Carrie.‐ The Hollywood News

4/5 No Score Yet Peripheral (2018) A story that works well within the confines of its limited location, crafting an unnerving and claustrophobic atmosphere, Peripheral is a sci-fi body horror that will get under the skin.‐ The Hollywood News

2/5 11% Siberia (2018) Another miss on the CV for Keanu Reeves, Siberia is a muddled mess that tries far too hard to be sexy (get ready for some very cringe-worthy sex scenes) and fails in the most epic way.‐ The Hollywood News

4/5 94% Little Sister (2016) A charming independent drama that deserves to cross over into the wider populace. Engaging, quirky, funny and emotional, Little Sister is an absolute delight. An instant kooky cult classic. ‐ The Hollywood News

3/5 25% Mara (2018) A strong debut from Clive Tonge, Mara gets a little bogged down by its formulaic narrative, but does have some gems hidden amongst it.‐ The Hollywood News

4/5 92% Mandy (2018) You'll likely come to Mandy for crazy Nic Cage, but once watching, will fall in love with the pure, unadulterated psychedelic visuals, hypnotic score and uber-violence, the likes we've barely seen since the eighties. ‐ The Hollywood News

2/5 No Score Yet CTRL (2018) For me Ctrl is a case of too much talking (about stuff I'm not versed enough in to fully grasp) and not enough forward momentum. A low-fi intellectual take on the sentient machine.‐ The Hollywood News

3/5 No Score Yet The Tokoloshe (2018) A solid debut that is let down by one small decision, The Tokoloshe is a chilling story with some very strong moments.‐ The Hollywood News

3/5 No Score Yet Ravers (2018) A real crowd-pleaser it should be watched with as many like-minded people as possible for full enjoyment. Fun and funny, Ravers is one party you'll want to attend.‐ The Hollywood News

3/5 No Score Yet Pimped (2018) A tautly scripted thriller that slowly seduces, Pimped has much more going on than it initially seems. Led by two strong central performances, expect scenes of a dark and violent nature, sans the typical blood and gore.‐ The Hollywood News

4/5 No Score Yet Perfect Skin (2018) With Perfect Skin, first-time director Kevin Chicken has crafted a film of true beauty, complimented perfectly by Richard Brake at his absolute best. Vastly different from his previous standout role of Doom-Head, Brake's turn here is simply superb.‐ The Hollywood News

1/5 50% Best F(r)iends, Part 1 (2018) What could, and should, have been more The Room level madness is sadly just downright mad. Unless you're a real glutton for punishment, skip this and just re-watch The Room again.‐ The Hollywood News

2/5 28% Venom (2018) Not as bad as Spider-Man 3, Venom sadly fails to capitalise on its potential. There's high hopes for a sequel, although with an opening this lack-lustre, Sony might just hit the reset button once more.‐ The Hollywood News

4/5 81% The Cleanse (2018) [It's] a film which is somehow endearing and calming, as well as dark and dangerous. A light-hearted and whimsical charm that has a surprisingly amount and tension and wariness hidden beneath.‐ The Hollywood News

3/5 No Score Yet The Sand (Blood Sand) (2015) The Sand takes a silly idea and somehow makes it work, helped greatly by the fact that it has got buckets of charm.‐ The Hollywood News

3/5 No Score Yet Seeds (2018) A film with a marmite subject matter that will divide critics & audiences alike, Seeds is still worth the investment. Just get ready to feel really uncomfortable.‐ The Hollywood News

2/5 60% Dead Night (2018) An instance of too many ideas & narrative styles, Dead Night fails to work how it should. A valiant turn from Crampton sadly cannot save this jumbled & confusing story.‐ The Hollywood News

2/5 80% Rock Steady Row (2018) Potentially a film only bicycle lovers can get on board with, Rock Steady Row is somewhat of a bewildering muddle.‐ The Hollywood News

3/5 No Score Yet St. Agatha (2018) St. Agatha just doesn't take-off in the way that one would hope. Laden with cliches, and a frustratingly slow pace, St. Agatha is watchable, just not that memorable.‐ The Hollywood News

4/5 75% The Devil's Doorway (2018) A debut that shows great promise, The Devil's Doorway is a fine example of found footage done right.‐ The Hollywood News
