Think The New World with more guns.



  • Wreckage

    This serviceable scrapyard slasher has a bit of poke in the engine and a few nice body mods, but the plot’s had a few too many miles on the clock…


  • Monsters

    One-to-watch Gareth Edwards makes his directorial d├ębut with Monsters, a micro-budget alien invasion movie that has been garnering (largely) positive reviews and misleading comparisons to last year’s District 9.

    First-time deviser-director Gareth Edwards has been much lauded for his debut feature, a sci-fi road movie set six years after Mexico is invaded by gigantic aliens.
