SYNCHRONIC
2020, Well Go USA, 101 min, USA, Dir: Justin Benson, Aaron Moorhead

When New Orleans paramedics and longtime best friends Steve (Anthony Mackie) and Dennis (Jamie Dornan) are called to a series of bizarre, gruesome accidents, they chalk it up to the mysterious new party drug found at the scene. But after Dennis’s oldest daughter suddenly disappears, Steve stumbles upon a terrifying truth about the supposed psychedelic that will challenge everything he knows about reality- and the flow of time itself.


THE WOLF OF SNOW HOLLOW
2020, Orion Classics, 85 min, USA, Dir: Jim Cummings

Writer-director-star Jim Cummings (THUNDER ROAD) travels to a small, snowbound town in Utah for this darkly comic horror-thriller. Snow Hollow is plagued by a spate of gruesome murders that coincide with the full moon. While the coroner and townsfolk think a 7-foot wolf may be responsible, Officer John Marshall (Cummings) believes a serial killer is on the loose. Unpredictable, immature and hot-headed, Marshall also has a big chip on his shoulder - his father (the late Robert Forster in a terrific turn) is the town’s Sheriff, a formidable man who refuses to retire for fear of being replaced by his lower-ranking son. With its electric script and acting, this low budget wonder is smart, funny, scary, bloody and made with tons of heart that shine through in every scene. - Spencer Hickman


POSSESSOR UNCUT
2020, Neon, 102 min, UK/Canada, Dir: Brandon Cronenberg

From the visionary mind of writer-director Brandon Cronenberg, POSSESSOR is an arresting sci-fi thriller about elite, corporate assassin Tasya Vos (Andrea Riseborough). Using brain-implant technology, Vos takes control of other people’s bodies to execute high profile targets. As she sinks deeper into her latest assignment Vos becomes trapped inside a mind that threatens to obliterate her. With Jennifer Jason Leigh, Christopher Abbott and Sean Bean.
