V/H/S/2

VHS2 posterDirectors: Jason Eisener, Adam Wingard, Gareth Evans, Eduardo Sanchez, Gregg Hale, Timo Tjahjanto

Cast: Adam Wingard, Jay Sanders, Fachry Albar, Hannah Al Rashid, Zack Ford

Cert: 18

Running time: 96mins

Year: 2013

The lowdown: Follow-up to the hit anthology original that retains the same structure but loses some of the surprise and scares that made V/H/S a winner.  The Raid director Gareth Evans delivers the best episode, with other instalments coming from Jason (Hobo with a Shotgun) Eisener and Eduardo (The Blair Witch Project) Sanchez, plus You’re Next’s Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett, who previously contributed to V/H/S.

The full verdict: It is fitting Eduardo Sanchez contributes to V/H/S2 (aka S-VHS) as he practically invented the found footage genre as co-director of The Blai...

Hatchet III

Hatchet III - posterDirector: BJ McDonnell

Cast: Danielle Harris, Zach Galligan, Caroline Williams, Kane Hodder

Cert: 18

Running time: 85mins

Year: 2013

The lowdown: Jason-Voorhees-like killer Victor Crowley rises again in this third instalment of the likeably scrappy, insanely gory horror franchise. Picking up moments after Hatchet II, Crowley is soon causing New Orleans swamp-based mayhem once more, while Danielle Harris and Zach (Gremlins) Galligan attempt to stop him. Plot and character are solid enough to keep momentum going, but fans are here for the red stuff and that runs in rivers.

We’re The Millers

We're the Millers - quad posterDirector: Rawston Marshall Thurber

Cast: Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston, Emma Roberts, Will Poulter, Nick Offerman, Kathryn Hahn, Ed Helms

Cert: 15

Running time: 110mins

Year: 2013

The lowdown:  Class A comedy from the director of Dodgeball, with small time pot dealer Dave (Sudeikis) hiring a fake family to get him and two tons of weed over the Mexican border and off the hit-list of his gleefully corrupt supplier (Helms) .  Snarky stripper Rose (Aniston), potty-mouthed runaway Casey (Roberts) and vacuous virgin Kenny (Will Poulter) join him for the ride, but things go south down South and the quarrelsome quartet are soon fleeing for their lives from a particularly peeved drug lord...
