SAINT MAUD
2020, A24, 84 min, UK, Dir: Rose Glass

The debut film from writer-director Rose Glass, SAINT MAUD is a chilling and boldly original vision of faith, madness and salvation in a fallen world. Maud (Morfydd Clark), a newly devout hospice nurse, becomes obsessed with saving her dying patient’s (Jennifer Ehle) soul - but sinister forces, and her own sinful past, threaten to put an end to her sacred calling. "An unholy holy terror of brilliant, blood-freezing intensity." - Guy Lodge, Variety


I'M THINKING OF ENDING THINGS
2020, Netflix, 134 min, USA, Dir: Charlie Kaufman

Despite second thoughts about their relationship, a young woman (Jessie Buckley) takes a road trip with her new boyfriend (Jesse Plemons) to his family farm. Trapped at the farm during a snowstorm with Jake’s mother (Toni Collette) and father (David Thewlis), the young woman begins to question the nature of everything she knew or understood about her boyfriend, herself, and the world. An exploration of regret, longing and the fragility of the human spirit, I'M THINKING OF ENDING THINGS is directed and written by Academy Award winner Charlie Kaufman (ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND). Inspired by Iain Reid's bestselling namesake novel.


SCREAM
1996, Paramount, 111 min, USA, Dir: Wes Craven

Director Wes Craven and writer Kevin Williamson re-invented and revitalized the slasher genre with this modern horror classic, which manages to be funny, clever and scary, as a fright-masked knife maniac stalks high-school students in middle-class suburbia. A Saturn and MTV Movie Award winner that spawned 3 big-screen sequels and a TV series, the box office hit provides both tension and self-parody as the body count mounts - but the victims aren't always the ones you'd expect. Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, David Arquette and Drew Barrymore are among the stars contending with the lethal Ghostface.
