 A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night
Directed by Ana Lily Amirpour. Not-Rated. Vampire Western (No, Really).

Spaghetti western meets pulp horror in this Iranian film. A young vampire skateboards and stalks men who have wronged women. A one-of-a-kind spooky treat!

What We Do in the Shadows
Directed by Taiki Waiti, Jemaine Clement. Rated R. Comedy with a touch of gore.

Contemporary New Zealand vampires are just like us: they have disagreements with their room mates, they make weekend plans to go clubbing, and they struggle with blood stain removal. The hilarious comedy from Waiti (Thor: Ragnorak, Hunt for the Wilderpeople) and Jemaine Clement (Flight of the Concords) will have you seeing vampires and werewolves in a new light. What We Do in the Shadows has been picked up by FX as a TV series for 2019.

The Sisterhood of Night
Directed by Caryn Waechter. Rated R. Horror/Cult/Witches.

Trade in social media for witchcraft and you get The Sisterhood of Night. Starring Georgie Henley, best known for her role of Lucy in The Chronicles of Narnia, young girls take an oath of silence (including staying off all social media) as they form a secret group that meets in the woods. In curious ways, the story parallels the Salem Witch Trials, leaving the audience to guess – who are the real evildoers of this story?

A Fantastic Fear of Everything 
Directed by Crispian Mills and Chris Hopewell. Rated R. Comedy/Horror.

Former children’s author turned true crime novelist, Jack (played by Simon Pegg) must face his paranoia, which includes fears of laundromats.
