Patrick Bryce (also director and co-writer) plays a videographer in charge of a Craigslist ad for Joseph (Mark Duplas), who wants to make a film about his alleged unborn child. I usually like horror movies that rely on performances to make you nervous because they are incredibly difficult to shoot. And I have to give it to Marc Duplas. He’s actually super scary.


Before the flawless series The Haunting of Hill House, Mike Flanagan introduced us to this clever adaptation of Stephen King’s novel The Game of Gerald. Carla Gugino is as huge as Jesse, a woman who goes on vacation with her husband to an isolated house on a lake in Alabama. When Jesse is handcuffed to the bed and there is no one to help her escape, it is both a matter of survival and escape. Another chapter of Flanagan’s melancholy-filled horror, which culminates in a silent triumph over the haunted heroes.

Vampires vs. the Bronx (2020)

Vampires Vs. the Bronx is a unique horror comedy in many ways.

But it’s not just new designer clothing stores that are threatening to move in: Creepy pale-skinned people are eating away at people and their property. Commentary on gentrification with goofy charm, twists and chills, Vampires Vs. the Bronx is a fresh, fun twist on the genre.


This thriller in the remote Scottish Highlands is far from an idyllic getaway. Get ready for a complete nervous nightmare that his characters desperately want to wake up from.

Caliber lives up to its name, delivering a slippery package of grim, captivating drama. Let all the power of this overwhelm you.

Before Black Widow, Kate Shortland made her name by directing excellent indie films, including Berlin Syndrome. In this psychological horror is Theresa Palmer as Claire Havel, a young Australian woman who goes on a trip to Berlin just to meet a man who holds her captive in her apartment.
