15 classification Poltergeist (2015)


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Horror / Thriller
Director: Gil Kenan
Running time: 94 mins

Poltergeist becomes the latest in a long line of horror classics to be rebooted for a new generation of moviegoers. Following the same basic plot as Tobe Hooper's 1982 original, Poltergeist is about a family tormented by evil spirits after moving into a new house. When youngest daughter Madison (Kennedi Clements) is taken captive by the apparitions, Eric and Amy Bowen (Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt) must steel themselves and unite the family in order to defeat the terrifying entities that have taken residence in their home. Poltergeist is punctuated with all of the tame audio ticks and camera tricks that have become a tired staple of modern horror filmmaking. Lacking innovation and originality, Poltergeist is an unnecessary and unwelcome presence in our multiplexes.

15 classification The New Girlfriend


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Drama / Foreign Language
Director: Francois Ozon
Running time: 108 mins

Loosely based on a Ruth Rendell story of the same name, The New Girlfriend sees Francois Ozon offer up another slice of subversive cinema. After the death of her best friend Laura, grief-stricken Claire (Anais Demoustier) makes a vow to care for Laura's husband David (Romain Duris) and their newborn daughter Lucie. But Claire soon makes a discovery about David that throws her life into turmoil, as together they begin to explore the boundaries of desire and sexuality. Straying often into thought-provoking meditations on death, gender roles and class, The New Girlfriend is an intriguing satire that is as playful as it is challenging.

15 classification A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Foreign Language / Horror
Director: Ana Lily Amirpour
Running time: 101 mins

Set in a desolate Iranian ghost-town, A Girl Walks Home Along At Night follows a character known simply as 'the Girl' (Sheila Vand) as she watches and preys on the thugs and addicts of the aptly named Bad City. The Girl takes a particular interest in Arash (Arash Marandi) but soon finds herself drawn to him romantically. Billed as the first Iranian vampire Western (though actually shot in the Californian desert by American-Iranian Ana Lily Amirpour), this black and white, Farsi language film is a stylish and beguiling addition to the vampire genre.
