HALLOWEEN (2018)
2018, Universal, 109 min, USA, Dir: David Gordon Green

Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago. Master of horror John Carpenter executive produces and serves as creative consultant on this film, joining forces with cinema’s current leading producer of horror, Jason Blum (GET OUT, SPLIT, THE PURGE, PARANORMAL ACTIVITY). Inspired by Carpenter’s classic, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 shocker.


MONSTER PARTY
2018, 83 min, USA, Dir: Chris von Hoffmann

When a trio of teen thieves infiltrates an elite dinner party by posing as servers, they find themselves wholly unprepared for what’s on the night’s menu - they’ve stumbled upon homicidal upper-class cultists in the throes of 12-stepped, stop-the-slaughter recovery! All hell breaks loose when the stickup goes south and the upwardly mobile murderers shed social graces in favor of their sociopathic sensibilities. Featuring pitch-perfect performances and garnished with salty social commentary, Chris von Hoffmann’s sophomore feature is funny, frightening and flush with enough practical effects and gore to sate even the most demanding horror fans.


THE GUILTY (2018)
DEN SKYLDIGE
2018, Magnolia Pictures, 85 min, Denmark, Dir: Gustav Möller

The night before he is to be reinstated for active duty, dispatch officer Asger Holm (Jakob Cedergren) gets an emergency call from a kidnapped woman. As the line is disconnected, Holm is thrown into a race against time to save the caller, but not everything is what it seems and what he suspects is a kidnapping might be something much, much bigger. One of the big hits out of Sundance, Gustav Möller’s one-location, high-concept thriller set over the course of one night is a brilliant example of how much a terrific actor and a nail-biting script can achieve.
