Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
2/5 32% Insidious: The Last Key (2018) In the end, this is a frustrating film, because Shaye is just so much better than everything going on around her. ‐ SciFiNow

5/5 85% Carnival of Souls (1962) If characters in a horror movie are watching an old black and white movie on TV late at night, and it's not Night Of The Living Dead, it's almost certainly Carnival Of Souls.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 35% Jigsaw (2017) Jigsaw isn't just re-treading old ground; it's new and old at the same time, a complex, tense, and brutal gorefest that feels completely unlike any horror movie of the past half-decade.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 71% Happy Death Day (2017) If you're looking for outright scares, you might be disappointed; for a slasher, Happy Death Day is also very light on bloodshed. But it's got real heart - for a film about death, it's surprisingly life-affirming.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 85% Sightseers (2013) Here, Britishness is the horror. And that's really scary.‐ SciFiNow

2/5 24% Paranormal Activity 4 (2012) Paranormal Activity has lapsed into self-parody.‐ SciFiNow

4/5 No Score Yet The City Of The Dead (1960) The City Of The Dead is both creepy and charming - it's the kind of gently spooky black and white horror that demands a rainy Sunday afternoon and a mug of hot chocolate.‐ SciFiNow

3/5 47% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) For all its flaws, it's tough to be too cynical about a movie so explicitly about the power of acceptance and teamwork. Sure, it's kind of ungainly, but beneath its awkward swagger, Power Rangers just wants to be loved. And who are we to refuse?‐ SciFiNow

2/5 16% Friend Request (2017) CGI wasps and coloured contact lenses aren't as terrifying as director Simon Verhoeven seems to think, and all the loud bangs in the world can't hide the lack of tension.‐ Total Film

3/5 92% The Gift (2015) First-time director Edgerton makes everything look beautiful even when it's deeply sinister, and his cast all do a great job.‐ SciFiNow

2/5 24% Dracula Untold (2014) This story, which paints Dracula as a romantic hero, may not have been told before, but there's a reason for that: it doesn't really make any sense.‐ SFX Magazine

4/5 74% Oculus (2014) A heartbreaking exercise in creeping dread that'll leave you feeling slightly nervous around mirrors for days (or longer...) afterwards.‐ Total Film

2/5 39% Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones (2014) There's plenty of potential for spookiness, but before anything interesting happens, the film trips and falls face first into the tangle of loose ends left over from previous sequels.‐ SFX Magazine

2/5 14% 47 Ronin (2013) Any story that's been passed down through several generations is likely to have been embellished along the way, but this adaptation of a Japanese folk tale takes things a little too far.‐ SFX Magazine

3/5 14% The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (2013) Grown-ups might've seen these tropes too many times to be impressed, but for teenage girls, it's a full-on Tumblrgasm in the making.‐ SFX Magazine

4/5 65% Byzantium (2013) Director Neil Jordan's return to the vampire genre is bloody and atmospheric, but at heart, it's about a girl who just desperately needs someone to listen to her.‐ SFX Magazine

3/5 65% Epic (2013) It's funny and often charming, but whenever it tries to introduce strong emotions of any kind, Epic falls short.‐ SFX Magazine

4/5 35% Restless (2011) Better stock up on tissues.‐ SFX Magazine

2/5 8% A Thousand Kisses Deep (2011) Neither proper science fiction nor serious romantic drama, A Thousand Kisses Deep is, in the end, too stupid to be worthwhile.‐ SFX Magazine

4/5 75% Cockneys vs Zombies (2013) Delivers in every way a zombie movie should: it's fun, tense in all the right places, and very, very gory.‐ SFX Magazine

3.5/5 63% Sinister (2012) Though the scares are undeniably effective, there's something forced about them. Each shock is delivered with almost mathematical precision.‐ SFX Magazine

4/5 84% The Hunger Games (2012) Ross has done more than churn out a faithful adaptation of the book. His vision of the world of The Hunger Games is bigger, scarier, darker, and more political than the books ever dared to be.‐ Den of Geek

4/5 98% Inside Job (2010) A glossy, stylish documentary that'll make you really, really angry.‐ Film4

4/5 85% Get Low (2010) Beautifully shot, beautifully acted, Get Low pretends to be a comedy about an odd man who wants to go to his own funeral and turns out to be a melancholy story about the way one tragic incident can change a man's life.‐ Film4
