Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City (2021)

A film that’s desperate to be cool, with more than a passing nod to John Carpenter’s titling and music. But it asks too much, taking our suspense of disbelief on long meandering walk.


47 Meters Down: Uncaged (2019)

Four teenage women go into an under water Mayan city populated by blind Great White sharks. Chomping and screaming accompany a seemingly endless number of jump scares. Some of the talking in masks sounds a little disembodied, like the English voiceover for a German porn film, but it keeps going, a bit like the sharks, until you can’t help but flinch when a mouth with teeth comes jumping out of the water. Best watched with someone of a nervous disposition. Their screams only add to the fright.
