With the week that’s in it, it’s no surprise that our top movie picks for the next seven days include not one, not two, but THREE horrors, with two crime thrillers thrown in for good measure. Scare the pants off yourself and lose hours of sleep, sure it’d be rude not to. Which of these five are you brave enough to check out?
Cabins, woods, aliens; need we say any more? Brought to you by director Colin Minihan, this movie tells the story of a group of friends who have to defend themselves against an alien onslaught. What is meant to be a romantic weekend away turns into a frantic fight for survival. Starring Freddie Stroma, who you may recognise from the Harry Potter films, this film is a perfect pick for Halloween week.
No Good Deed
We're leading yp to the scariest day of the year, so we’re bound to have an escaped convict or two in the cinema, right? No Good Deed, directed by Emmy-award nominated Sam Miller and starring Idris Elba, tells the story of a mother-of-two who spends a night being terrorised by an escaped prisoner.
Starring Rooney Mara and Martin Sheen and based on a novel by Andy Mulligan, Trash is set in an unnamed city where three children Raphael, Gardo and Rat spend most of their time rooting through piles of rubbish in the hopes of unearthing something of worth. This endeavour soon finds them on the run from the police and on a quest to right a terrible wrong.
This supernatural horror-thriller, directed by Stiles White, brings us on a journey through our deepest fears of the unknown. A group of friends soon find out that some games just aren’t worth it.
Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, this crime-thriller tells the story of Lou Bloom, a man who stumbles into the world of underground crime journalism, with dangerous and life-threatening consequences. Directed by Dan Gilroy of The Bourne Legacy fame, this is an edge-of-your-seat type flick.
