A film that I hoped would be horror-ier (which I know isn’t a word but ‘have more horror in it’ isn’t right here either…).
Julia Ducournau’s TITANE (2021) screened as the Time Out special presentation at the 65th BFI London Film Festival at the Royal Festival Hall (09 OCT 2021).
Lee Haven Jones’ Welsh-language horror show THE FEAST aka Gwledd pits urban greed against the forces of nature. The film screened in the First Film Competition of the 65th BFI London Film Festival at Curzon Mayfair (09 OCT 2021).
Banjong Pisanthanakun’s THE MEDIUM is a mocumentary/found-footage tale of possession in the Thai region of Isan. The film screened in the Cult strand of the 65th BFI London Film Festival at ODEON Luxe West End (08 OCT 2021).
Nia DaCosta’s CANDYMAN (2021) is a good film, but there was potential for it to be an angrier, more brutal & significantly more damning one.

In brief: A vengeful spirit takes possession of the fresh meat on campus.
The werewolf FX have a well-cuddled Care Bear quality that makes you want to rub the creature’s belly for rainbow wishes.
