Christopher Smith conjures up waves of chilling horror in this twisting, nautical thriller.
The Night Eats the World
The Night Eats the World
This impressive French horror stands out as a zombie apocalypse tale with brains.
Leigh Janiak’s assured debut condenses all the alienating scenes from a marriage into an understated, atmospheric horror.
28 Days Later meets The Blair Witch Project as a mysterious virus turns the inhabitants of an apartment building into a horde of frenzied, bloodthirsty ghouls in the original 2007 found footage phenomenon that spawned a hit franchise and US remake.
This collage of The Shining conspiracy theories is a bonkers yet fascinating study of how art finds meaning with its audience.
The Crazies (1973)
Putting the “gory” in “allegory”, Romero’s film shows the madness of the Vietnam war in all its viral contagion.
The Crazies (2010)
Timothy Olyphant makes for a charismatic lead in this scarily effective remake of a Romero classic.
This supremely suspenseful babysitter-from-hell horror marks out Sarah Bolger as a talent to watch.
Hideo Nakata’s chilling, imaginative horror is as unsettling as it is influential.
A Dark Song
Gripping, unrelenting and unique, you’ve never seen a haunted house movie like this.
The Dark (2018)
The Dark is an admirably unique spin on the undead that doesn’t quite overcome its structural issues.
This ambitious micro-budget sci-fi will blow your fragile little mind.
A seminal horror from the disturbed mind of maestro Clive Barker.
This abduction thriller gives erotomania and psychopathy several new twists.
I Am Not a Serial Killer
This coming-of-age horror is a creepily charming treat.
Jaume Collet-Serra’s 2009 tale of an adoption gone wrong is a modern cult classic.
This small-town coming-of-ager regenders the werewolf myth as a hilariously icky exploration of the monstrous feminine.
Splice gives its horrible theme a twisted heart. As freaky as it is fascinating. Ivan
When is a vampire movie not a vampire movie? When Nic Cage thinks he’s turning into one by mistake. Think of the most absurd thing you can. Then times it by five. And make it recite the alphabet.
The House of the Devil
This razor-sharp throwback to the 70s and 80s cements Ti West as a horror director to be reckoned with.
The Blair Witch Project
The definitive found footage flick is still eerily atmospheric.
A group of strangers wake up to find themselves in a cube-shaped room that is booby-trapped with nasty puzzles. They escape, only to find another cube next to it. And another. And another. Splice director Vincenzo Natali’s sci-fi horror is a wonderfully trashy B-movie with enough blood to match its premise.
Incident in a Ghostland
Martyrs maestro Pascal Laugier delivers another horror story of trauma, delusion and escape.
