A family in 1630s New England is torn apart by the forces of witchcraft, black magic and possession. Available 14 July – Outdoor from 14 September 2016 (TBC)

'The Witch illustrates itself as a tense, deeply atmospheric crawl. It Old English representation is some of the best I've ever seen and really sets the stage for the forthcoming tale - one that is dismal, dreary, and genuinely creepy. Although slow to start, it's not difficult for one to be quickly and fully immersed in such an otherworldly environment.' -  To read the full ★★★★ review by Lyzette on Letterboxd click on the poster above

After getting in a car accident, a woman is held in a shelter with two men, who claim the outside world is affected by a widespread chemical attack. Available 7 July – Outdoor from 7 September 2016 (TBC)

'Dan Trachtenberg's 10 Cloverfield Lane is better than any film producer J.J. Abrams has made, and it's only his first feature film. I know that's a bold statement, but it's true. I knew the man was talented after seeing his short Portal: No Escape, but this is an entirely different beast (pun most certainly intended). A film that's absolutely nerve-wrackng and full of fantastic performances, Trachtenberg's film elicits a tone and style one would find if you mixed Hitchcock with Ridley Scott's Alien.' – To read the full ★★★★ review by Austin Gorski on Letterboxd click on the poster above

★★★1/2 Star review of Cargo (2009)

★★★1/2 Star review of Cargo (2009)
Science Fiction, Drama, Thriller. Rated M, 112 Minutes.
Starring: Anna-Katharina Schwabroh, Martin Rapold, Regula Grauwiller

Synopsis:
The future is dead. During an ecological collapse the world has evolved into nothing but a decaying mass of pollution. A truly terrifying sci-fi masterpiece, CARGO’s claustrophobic atmosphere and haunting climax have made it one of the most talked about releases of the year. A thrilling and intense dystopian nightmare that sets the controls to the heart of fear.

Review:
The more realistic you make a movie set in space the more boring it’s going to be. Messages take years to get to their receivers, it takes so long to get anywhere that you have to freeze yourself to avoid being bored to death. It’s dark, it’s cold and it’s lonely, I guess that’s why most movies set in space are so unrealistic. Cargo captures these ‘realistic’ elements of space and mixes in a little suspense, creating an ‘old dark house’ with things that go bump in the night.

The special effects are quite variable, going from being visually stunning to occasionally looking cheap. The spaceship designs aren’t highly original but are beautifully designed and warrant the slow lingering shots that show what’s going on. I did love the fact that they made everything so cold, it’s an obvious choice considering the dystopian setting and the fact that it must be bugger to heat a giant spaceship.

This realism combined with a slow burn plot make for an enjoyable and atmospheric drama that borrows heavily from thrillers and noticeably the first Alien movie. However, If you are in for big scares, horror and excitement this definitely isn’t the film for you. This film is more for those who like watching scared people stumbling around inside a dark spaceship trying to uncover the mystery that surrounds the ships cargo.

Review out of five stars: ★★★1/2 Stars.
