‘Lovely Molly’ review

A dedicated cast, authentic characterisation and a couple of genuinely terrifying moments lift Eduardo Sánchez’s horror from exploitative slasher into bone-jolting thriller.

‘The Innkeepers’ review

If you think the idea of someone with a sheet over their head in a haunted hotel is more laughable than scary then think again.

‘Rock of Ages’ review

You can deliberate over whether Rock of Ages is paying tribute to or poking fun at the music featured. But to do so would be to over analyse.
