I am absolutely in love with Tragedy Girls, as it completely defied my expectations at every single turn. A brilliant send-up of the slasher sub-genre that's relentlessly funny, heartfelt, and clever, Tragedy Girls is one of the most “fun” festival movies I’ve seen since Deathgasm, proving that no one can ever come between two best friends, especially when they've got murder on their minds and an online legacy to build.

A brutal and harrowing abduction story, Ben Young’s Hounds of Love premiered over the weekend at the 2017 SXSW Film Festival.

Using vampirism for allegorical purposes, Michael O’Shea’s The Transfiguration is a truly stunning and heartbreaking effort from a first-time director who demonstrates an appreciation for horror, showing how the genre can be a vessel for exploring stories with deeper meanings without getting too preachy or heavy-handed.

The most that any of us can hope for is just surviving. Isn’t it time we started living? Us and Them squarely takes on economic pressures that are building in the UK (and frankly, issues that are affecting nearly every other country on the map these days), as Danny (Jack Roth), a member of the lower class who recently lost his father to suicide, decides to take his frustrations out on a wealthy banker and his family to inspire others in his predicament to start fighting back against the elite. But when his plan goes south, that’s when all hell breaks loose, and we see just how much of a motivator money can be, especially when it comes to murder.
