– click on the film title to see our review.
So, in no particular order…
the stop-motion animated feature with an all-star cast, telling a tale of a boy as he sets out to change the fate of his best friend.
an understated but powerful social drama, exploring universal themes of family and belonging.
a stunning piece of work that captures working class life and a musical passion.
subverting expectations, one of the standout horror films of the year.
a re-imagining of the cult horror classic, where grindhouse gore is tempered with arthouse sensibility.
a visceral, bruising story of redemption.
a tale of revenge filled with bloody vengeance and laced with fire.
an unflinching examination of race relations in 1970s America, as socially relevant in today’s turbulent world.
an almost documentary-like look at youth, female friendship and skateboarding culture.
and our film of the year…
a tense, gripping thriller through a fractured mental state.
An honourable mention to the films from the previous awards season, with their UK cinema release in 2018
