Riddick (2013)

"Riddick lacks the soulless, mechanised groan of the previous film, but even stripping away the excess, this disappointing jaunt has very little meat on its bones." ‐What Culture

Odd Thomas (2014)

"When a movie directed by Stephen Sommers doesn't even get a theatrical release, you know something's up." ‐What Culture

The Last Days (2014)

"The Pastors prove what can be done with a modest budget when you strip away the Hollywood excess." ‐What Culture

The Conspiracy (2013)

"As both a compelling examination of conspiracy theorists and a unique found footage film, The Conspiracy lays firm groundwork before delivering a tense, dynamic third act." ‐What Culture

Dark Tourist (2013)

"Disappointingly resorts to a reductive dissection of its protagonist in the third reel, but The Grief Tourist benefits from Michael Cudlitz's suitably creepy performance, and is an atmospheric, suspenseful ride." ‐What Culture

Contracted (2013)

"Ultimately disappointing due to an inane script which fashions a thoroughly unlikable, idiotic protagonist who invites derision more than sympathy." ‐What Culture

Tráiganme la cabeza de la mujer metralleta (Bring Me the Head of the Machine Gun Woman) (2012)

"The video game-inspired visuals, pulsing synth score and manic level of energy make it quite the ride indeed." ‐What Culture

On Tender Hooks (2013)

"Certainly provides plenty of fascinating insight into the human suspension community, even if most viewers will probably still struggle to relate to shoving hooks through their body in the pursuit of enlightenment." ‐What Culture

Rewind This! (2013)

"This unabashedly nostalgic doc serves as a potent reminder of VHS' pivotal role in the history of entertainment, even if we've all moved on now. Well, most of us." ‐What Culture

Cannon Fodder (2012)

"The first Israeli zombie flick does little to elevate itself above the garden variety entries to the genre, suffering from poor acting, a generic plot, and laughable visual effects." ‐What Culture

R.I.P.D. (2013)

"It's hard to think of a lazier, less-ambitious blockbuster in recent memory." ‐What Culture

No One Lives (2013)

"While it builds palpable tension early on, No One Lives de-evolves into a generic torture porn gorefest in its second half, becoming increasingly absurd as it does so" ‐What Culture

Hammer Of The Gods (2013)

"Barely one step above a middling Game of Thrones fan-film, albeit executed with little of the passion that this would imply." ‐What Culture

Frankenstein's Army (2013)

"This thinly-premised WW2-set found footage flick just about succeeds by way of its excellent creature designs and unexpectedly clever political gags." ‐What Culture

Hypnotisören (The Hypnotist) (2012)

"An inoffensive enough Nordic thriller that nevertheless completely blows its interesting premise." ‐What Culture

Enter the Dangerous Mind (2015)

"A smart, stylish psychological thriller boosted by stellar performances and a unique engagement with its schizophrenic protagonist." ‐What Culture

Painless (2012)

Antisocial (2013)

"This unconvincing techno-horror is too self-serious to be entertaining, but also too silly to be taken seriously." ‐What Culture

Hansel and Gretel Get Baked (2013)

"Coasts on a brilliant performance from Lara Flynn Boyle, even if it's strictly for fans of the stoner movie formula." ‐What Culture

The Paranormal Diaries: Clophill (2013)

"By title alone, The Paranormal Diaries: Clophill might sound like a lame, straight-to-video Paranormal Activity ripoff, and that's because it essentially is. " ‐What Culture

Sadik 2 (2013)

"Though wearing its meta tone on its sleeve, Sadik 2 takes far too long to engage with its twisty concept, and is painfully subject to a subterranean budget." ‐What Culture

Daylight (2013)

Para Elisa (2013)

100 Bloody Acres (2013)

"A potently satirical realisation of what "dog eat dog" business strategy really means." ‐What Culture

V/H/S/2 (2013)

"This entry is even more inconsistent than the original, also suffering from oft-incomprehensible coverage and another dull wrap-around story." ‐What Culture

Hatchet III (2013)

"It's great to see Zach Galligan on the big screen again, but Hatchet III serves up a host of unimaginative kills stymied by terrible gore effects. Strictly for fans of the series." ‐What Culture

The Dyatlov Pass Incident (Devil's Pass) (2013)

"Despite drawing influence from a fascinating real-life event, this sloppily directed, largely tension-free found footage film sticks too closely to genre formula. " ‐What Culture

You're Next (2013)

"While it doesn't quite subvert genre expectations as much as it could have, You're Next delivers irreverent thrills by way of savage violence, lashings of dark humour, and a steely performance from Sharni Vinson." ‐What Culture

Top Cat:The Movie (UK) (2011)

"No child or parent deserves to be subjected to something so effortless and cynical. Top Cat: The Movie is a rarity; an almost completely mirthless, charmless animated film." ‐What Culture

The Canyons (2013)

"A deeply ugly film from top to bottom, but more importantly, how can a collaboration between Lohan, Deen, Ellis and Schrader be so dull?" ‐What Culture

The Wolverine (2013)

"There's much to like in James Mangold's take on X-Men's mutton-chopped superhero, but little mistaking the overall wonkiness of the enterprise." ‐What Culture

The World's End (2013)

"Though darker and in many ways more cavalier than either of its predecessors, the third time is most certainly an ambitious, uproarious, insane, bromantic charm." ‐What Culture

3.5/5 71%

Pacific Rim (2013)

"Unexpectedly hollow and corny as Hell, but set your brain to cruise control and it also delivers (eventually) on its promises of crowd-pleasing, rock 'em, sock 'em action." ‐What Culture

This Is the End (2013)

"In daring to so aggressively shake up two formulas for the price of one - the apocalyptic epic and the frat-boy romp - this is a very special comedy indeed." ‐What Culture

Despicable Me 2 (2013)

Man of Steel (2013)

The Stone Roses: Made of Stone (2013)

Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas (2014)

Nebraska (2013)

"Payne's latest considers the notion of legacy with quietly heart-wrenching attention to detail, and is one of his sweetest yet most unsentimental films to date." ‐Film School Rejects

The Golden Dream (La Jaula De Oro) (2015)

All Is Lost (2013)

"Redford's fiercely committed and quite brilliant performance is the reason to see this daringly minimalist, slightly overlong curio." ‐Film School Rejects

Grigris (2013)

Only God Forgives (2013)

"Simply, without a brand name like Refn's at the helm, there's no way this project would be In Competition at Cannes, nor would it have attracted its talented stars, nor even found its way out of your local bargain bin." ‐Film School Rejects

The German Doctor (2014)

"An ominous premise gains little traction by way of Puenzo's plodding approach." ‐Film School Rejects
