15 classification It Follows


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Horror / Teen
Director: David Robert Mitchell
Running time: 100 mins

It has long been a common trope of the slasher movie that sex will get you killed. This critically acclaimed indie horror plays with the idea to great effect. Nineteen-year-old Jay (Maika Monroe) has been dating Hugh (Jake Weary) for a while and he seems like a normal guy. However, after they have sex he knocks her unconscious and she wakes up tied to a chair. He tells her that he has passed something terrible onto her, but he isn't talking about an infection. It seems that there is now some kind of malevolent presence attached to Jay that will follow her until it can kill her, and the only way to get rid of it is by having sex with someone else, thereby passing it onto them. Jay is plagued by strange visions as she tries to make sense of what Hugh has done to her.

15 classification Focus


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Thriller / Romance / Crime
Director: Glen Ficcara, John Requa
Running time: 105 mins

Will Smith returns to more serious adult fare after several years of cameos (Winter's Tale, Anchorman 2), terrible sequels (Men In Black 3) and one unforgivable M. Night Shyamalan film (After Earth). He plays a con artist named Nicky Sturgeon, which is a good casting choice because I would believe anything that The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air told me. An accomplished liar, Nicky meets a beautiful, inexperienced young con artist named Jess (Margot Robbie) and takes pity on her. He trains her in the art of deception, but when they become close he insists that they split up. Three years later, he runs into her in Buenos Aires just as he prepares to undertake a particularly big and dangerous job.

15 classification The Boy Next Door


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Thriller
Director: Rob Cohen
Running time: 91 mins

A cheesy thriller that shows that it isn't just men who get attacked by bunny-boilers. Claire Peterson (Jennifer Lopez) is an English teacher who has recently separated from her husband Garrett (John Corbett). Even though he cheated on her (which is just stupid, who would cheat on Jennifer Lopez?!), she is still wavering over whether they should get divorced. Her best friend and colleague Vicky Lansing (Kristin Chenoweth) encourages her to make a clean break. Claire's son Kevin befriends their new neighbour Noah (Ryan Guzman), who is staying with his uncle. Claire is drawn in by Noah's good looks and charming manner, but tries not to do anything inappropriate as he is not yet twenty and recently enrolled in the school she teaches at. Her resolve doesn't last, but Noah reveals himself to be a little intense when it comes to romance.
