  • A chilling and occasionally gruesome piece of horror about paranoia.
  • Gripping, tense, bloody, and distinctly dark.
  • A thrilling ride into the bloodied entrails of terror and paranoia.
  • With echoes of Polanski’s Rosemary’s Baby and The Babadook, Son is a forever twisting tale of terror and trauma, featuring some excellent performances across the board.

The War Below

Director: J.P. Watts
Cast: Sam Hazeldine (The Hitman's Bodyguard), Tom Goodman-Hill (The Imitation Game, Everest), Elliot James Langridge (Twist)

In the midst of the great war, Colonel "Hellfire Jack" Norton-Griffiths hatches a daring plan to break the deadly stalemate at the battle of messines.
He recruits a group of local miners to dig a tunnel underneath no man's land, from the allied trenches to the german trenches, in hopes of successfully setting off bombs from below the german line and saving the allied war effort.

  • As visually compelling as it is impressive in its character work. Hazeldine’s stoic performance is the highlight, but this is a very strong piece across the board which does not deserve to fly under the radar. A quality World War I movie.
  • Fascinating and true story.
  • A tense, personal edge of your seat story of incredible bravery in times of horror. 5/5 stars.
  • An admirable job of telling this fascinating tale.
  • Real-life account of miners recruited in the first world war to burrow beneath German lines is fascinating.
  • A fascinating Great War side story and a gritty central turn from Sam Hazeldine (Peaky Blinders)
  • Great performances and a strong emotional connection to their social and physical plight.

Apex Predator

Available on VOD: 22 november 2021
Director: Edward Drake
Cast: Bruce Willis (Die Hard, Red, Sixth Sense, Split), Neal McDonough (Minority Report, The 100), Lochlyn Munro (Riverdale, White Chicks)

Based on Richard Connell’s “The Most Dangerous Game”.Five elite Hunters pay to hunt a human on a deserted island. But each Hunter begins to fall as the Prey fightsback with mind-games, traps, and a determination to survive they have never witnessed before.

  • It’s a classic story of rich people hunting humans for sport. The new spin on it is bizarre and over the top in the best way possible.
  • McDonough, as the twisted, blood-thirsty killer who gets his prey every time, is excellent in bringing out the cold-blooded killer.
  • Neal McDonough proving what a class act he is on screen.
