    ”Do you know anything about......witches?”

    Taking a temporary step away from his more reality based giallo films, Dario Argento here transports us into an enchanted technicolour dream of a gothic fairy-tale as we share a journey into the darkness with dance student Suzy Bannion (Jessica Harper), a coven of witches awaits.
    Full of vivid primary colours and beautiful set designs, Argento composes each frame as though it was a work of art in its own right, opening the film out…

    ”God is pain, God is suffering.”

    Writer/director Gareth Evans takes a step away from the martial arts action genre he is so far best known for with his hit Raid movies, onto ground that he has briefly tread before while working alongside Timo Tjahjanto for the Safe Haven segment of horror anthology VHS 2, and while Apostle doesn’t reach the dizzy heights of lunacy showcased in that fantastic short it still has its share of striking, gruesome imagery as Thomas…

    Fireworks and hurricanes, I’m not here

    Adapting a novella by Jonathan Ames, director Lynne Ramsay makes a return to the screen with the dark and disturbingly beautiful tale of Joe (Joaquim Phoenix), a traumatized former soldier now working for a small private firm where he specializes in the recovery of children from sex trafficking rings. Things get brutal, complicated and even more personal after he’s hired to rescue the daughter of a politician.

    ”Are you dreaming in their language?”

    Amy Adams superbly runs the gamut of human emotion in her quest to break a language barrier and find answers to questions that could affect the whole of humanity.
    A film who’s image is often slightly out of focus just as the alien language and their intentions are a mystery, with the world impatient for answers can a species with no single leader or language of it’s own come together?
    Director Denis Villeneuve along…
