2016, A24, Dir: Bryan Bertino

Zoe Kazan and Ella Ballentine play a mother and her daughter who are terrorized by a monster in the new horror film from writer-director Bryan Bertino.

2015, 93 min, USA/Canada, Dir: Oz Perkins

During winter break at a rural boarding school, Kat (Kiernan Shipka) and Joan (Emma Roberts) become companions, neither suspecting that an evil presence is stalking Kat. The pair’s isolation is palpable, as apparently disjointed scenes link to produce a suffocating, intense atmosphere that makes the film’s climactic emotional punch even more powerful. Among the most audacious and brilliant horror debuts of the year.
