    Last Night in Soho

    ★★★★½

    Last Night In Soho is a head rush of a film: exciting, creepy, and glamorous. It’s an instant horror classic from Edgar Wright.

    Aspiring designer Eloise is in her first year of fashion school in London. She doesn’t fit in with the rest of the students due to her fixation on the glamorous world of 1960s Soho. When she rents a room in a vintage bedsit she begins to have visions of a nightclub singer named Sandie and a technicolour…

  • The Suicide Squad

    The Suicide Squad

    ★★★★½

    The Suicide Squad is a fantastic blend of comic book silliness with ultraviolence. There have been R-rated superhero movies before but rarely one this fun.

    The story follows a group of Z-list supervillains who are recruited to perform a shady covert operation for the US government, with mercenaries Bloodsport and Peacemaker as their nominal leaders. The mission takes them to a remote island in order to destroy a secret military research site called Project Starfish. To give further details would…

    Our Father

    ★★★★

    Our Father is the chilling story of a man’s obsession with reproduction, and the consequences it has for his offspring and victims.

    A woman who was conceived with donor sperm checks her relatives on the ancestry website 23 And Me, curious as to whether she has any siblings. She finds not the one or two she expected but several, then dozens. As it turns out, the answer to the mystery is disturbing- Dr Donald Cline, who carried out the insemination,…

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★½

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is an energetic, if shallow, jaunt through alternative realities. Director Sam Raimi’s style hasn’t entirely survived the transition to Marvel intact, but it still has a goofy edge which sets it apart from most superhero films.

    The story begins with Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) and a young woman named America Chavez (Xochitl Gomez) fleeing from a demon which is trying to steal her unique power. Strange makes the decision to kill her to…

    The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

    ★★★½

    The second Conjuring sequel is a classically creepy story whose strong atmosphere picks up the slack for its over-the-top elements. The film has the good filmmaking of the core entries of the series despite James Wan being absent from the driver’s seat.

    The story begins with the Warren couple investigating a family struggling with demon possession. After their initial attempt to help goes horribly wrong, the paranormal investigators begin to suspect that a curse has been laid on the family…

  • The Fly

    The Fly

    ★★★★★

    The Fly blends horror and existential drama into something poetic and tragic. The story goes far beyond its B-movie premise while remaining a pure shot of gruesome 80s Cronenberg.

    The plot is similar to the original 1950s science fiction film, although the execution is very different. Seth Brundle is a brilliant scientist working on a teleportation device which could make all other forms of transport obsolete. After becoming involved with a journalist and her scheming boss an accident occurs which…
