His House (2020)
This new, unique horror flick focuses on a refugee couple from South Sudan struggling to adjust to their new life in an English town that has an evil lurking beneath the surface.

This excellent South Korean zombie film, directed by Cho Il-hyung, features a video game live streamer’s struggle for survival as he is forced to stay alone at his apartment in Seoul during a feral and ferocious zompocalypse. It’s a close-quarters potboiler of panic, fear, and isolation.
The Block Island Sound (2020)
From American Vandal’s Kevin and Matthew McManus comes a chilling, slow-burn thriller about a strange, mysterious force off the coast that influences the residents and wildlife of Block Island. After suffering a series of violent outbursts, a fisherman unknowingly puts his family in grave danger.
In the Tall Grass (2019)
In the Tall Grass has quite a strong pedigree. It’s based on a novella written by Stephen King and his son Joe Hill, is directed by Cube and Splice director Vincenzo Natali and stars The Conjuring’s Patrick Wilson. It also boasts a simple and effective premise. Innocent people are lured into a cornfield when they hear screams, only to find escape very difficult indeed.
It Comes at Night (2017)
One of the great truths of horror is that what you can’t see is infinitely more terrifying than what you can see. This is a post-apocalyptic horror movie that does a whole lot with very little. It’s set in the middle of a global pandemic, but focuses solely on a single family struggling to stay alive in a remote cabin. The oppressive darkness and uncertainty surrounding the plague and its victims make for a frighteningly good ride.
