“Bad things are commonplace in Bad City, including prostitution, drugs and crime, and most recently a sequence of attacks by a vampire on the loose. In this wild mash-up of cinematic genres, one couple struggles to cope with their hellish situation.” – See the Iranian horror film that showed up on many Best of 2014 lists, and read our review here.Altar (2014)
“A family moves into a dilapidated old mansion, and while restoring it, they inadvertently awaken ghosts and unearth their home’s haunting secret.” – A good old fashioned British ghost story.
“Distraught over killing an innocent girl, a hit man chooses instead to save the life of his next target — the dead girl’s mother.” – A violent South Korean action film the same man who brought us 2010’s The Man From Nowhere.
“A top London cop is ready to die of boredom when his superiors transfer him to a sleepy English village to work alongside a blundering but well-meaning young constable. But soon enough, the town begins to stir with a series of grisly accidents.” – While not as beloved as Shaun of the Dead, Edgar Wright’s follow-up film is still a hell of a fun watch.
