  • Norwegian Ninja

    You’d never expect action comedy Norwegian Ninja to live up to the glorious premise of its supercheese title. And yet this absurdist masterpiece from the producers of Dead Snow really does. Full of Norwegians, ninja and so, so much more…


  • Caged

    A trio of doctors take a detour… only to find themselves kidnapped and caged by masked men for unknown purposes. A paucity of gore is balanced by an unnervingly effective excess of tension in this high quality French torture porn horror…


  • Taxi Zum Klo

    Following the sexual exploits of a gay teacher in 1980s Germany, Taxi Zum Klo was hailed as the first ‘post-gay liberation movie’, while predictably shocking the mainstream. The contemplative tone and gentle humour offset the graphic sex to make a frank and non-judgemental account of the gay subculture. Warning: not for anyone of even a slightly prudish nature.

  • The Stoning of Soraya M

    A heavy handed portrayal of a brutal true story. Whilst it struggles to lend any real depth to some of its central characters, this offering from writer/director Cyrus Nowrasteh is a powerful depiction that sticks in the mind. Prepare for conspiracy, betrayal, guilt and one of the most horrific on-screen deaths imaginable.
