    The Awakening


    Ostensibly a ghost story, this is a load of turgid melodrama peppered with monotonous jump scares. Choppy editing and what feels like a dozen plot twists too many make this a tiresome and tedious experience.

    I don't mind violent movies. I don't mind stupid movies. But here we have a violent, stupid movie that tries to pass itself off as all meta, clever and profound. It's the filmmaker's smugness that annoys me more than anything else.

    God Told Me To


    This is a fascinating, unsettling, incoherent mess of a film.

    Imagine a mash-up between The Omen, The X-Files, Mean Streets and Dirty Harry, with a smidgen of Cronenberg-esque body horror thrown in just for giggles.

    The plot is barely comprehensible, but it's still quite watchable.
