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.

1990, 20th Century Fox, 104 min, USA, Dir: Renny Harlin

Andrew Dice Clay found a movie character perfect for his larger-than-life persona in Ford Fairlane, a “rock ‘n’ roll detective” catering to the music industry from behind the wheel of a 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner. With an arsenal of off-color one-liners, Ford confronts a motley crew of musicians, shock-jocks, groupies and label executives to solve the on-stage murder of a heavy metal singer; among the many cameos in this cult favorite are memorable turns by Vince Neil, Gilbert Gottfried, Wayne Newton, Priscilla Presley and NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET baddie Robert Englund.
