CAM was really good I thought. Simple and effective. I like that you still never really found out what it was that was causing the thing. And a great use of tension, a couple of unresolved hooks notwithstanding.

The dinging is just the sound that occurs in that environment.

And re your second point - the main writer was a former camgirl. And also - so what?

I quite liked this, it's genuinely unpleasant at times see the lead in so much distress, but I don't know, I didn't quite click with it and got bored a couple of times. A 6.2/10 kind of film, I've no regrets that I watched it but I'll never catch it a second time.

Tumbbad (2018) is about a 'greedy bastard' who is determined to find the treasure hidden in his father's mansion. It creates a very good atmosphere right from the start, wobbles a bit when the first song kicks in (no dancing) before pulling you right back in for the finale.
Thumbs up.

Revenge (2018)



Really enjoyed this retribution thriller tonight.  Directed by Coralie Fargeat  Daft, but stylish Grindhouse exploitation homage with loads of gratuitious gore and sexiness. I Spit On Your Grave via Glazer and Daft Punk.

Await Further Instructions is a bit shit but fucking hell is it wonderfully fun shit.

Thanks for this. Shit in almost every possible way but still somehow very enjoyable

I also watched Revenge, which was probably better in a number of ways but I found it really dull

I just don't know anymore.

I can understand why you might have found Revenge dull, because as a retribution storyline it has been done to death but it looked so visually stunning and I thought everybody played their part well.

I watched Await Further Instructions last night and it was enjoyable enough as it evoked some 'straight to video' film circa 1988.  Why do nearly all British thrillers/ horrors always have these plaintive, old fashioned scores?

It's not an idea that can sustain a full-length film unless you really go mental with it, which they don't.  It's alright, but gets dull because they reach the limit of what they want to do quite early on.  Ideally it'd be half the length and an episode in the new Twilight Zone series.

Rust Creek prefers to present itself as a thriller, but it's a modern version of a 70s style horror flick that's being coy.  Big city girl takes a wrong turn and ends up in Bumblefuck USA, where she finds herself lost in the woods pursued by Bubba and Skeeter.  Lots of running about, and uncertainty about who can be trusted.  Certainly not a gorefest, but absolutely a horror film, it all feels very familiar but it's not badly put together.
