  • 2h 4min

  • Directed by: Otomo Katsuhiro
  • Cast: Animated by Nakamura Takashi, with the voices of Iwata Mitsue, Sasaki Nozomu, Koyama Mami, Ishida Taro.

Based on the multi-volume graphic novel by Otomo, Akira is a mythical, futuristic tale of post-holocaust Tokyo, where pill-popping biker kids begin to unearth a government project designed to exploit the psychic and telekinetic powers of a group of laboratory-bound children. Superbly animated, with a fantastic visual and narrative imagination, but you'd be well advised to know something of the plot before you see it.

Eggs (Hempstead-Wright) lives underground with a family of Boxtrolls, marginalised creatures who make their home from rubbish. But then the trolls are hunted by a group of exterminators, led by the grotesque Snatcher (Kingsley). Adventurous, intense and sometimes disturbing animated movie, with plenty to keep adults occupied; whether kids will respond is another question.

DePalma's adaptation of Stephen King is still the high school angst movie to end 'em all. Distressingly awkward teen Spacek's adolescent experience is so humiliating that she develops telekinetic powers, and the school bullies finally get their comeuppance.

The first and best of the series – and one of the best of all slasher movies. Escaped psycho Michael Myers returns to the town where he killed his sister several years before and picks up where he left off with remarkable ease. Pleasence is the obsessive psychiatrist on his trail, convinced he is to blame for the escape. A scary reminder of what a blood-soaked genre could achieve if only it recovered from sequelitis.

Three 17th century witches are brought back to life in modern-day Salem, and go searching for young blood to keep them immortal. Max (Katz) is our hapless hero, helped out of one predicament to the next by resourceful heroine Allison (Vinessa Shaw). The story cracks along, the effects are moderate, the gags good, but it's for the younger end of the teen market.

  • 2h 7min
  • PG

A group of scientists are invited to give their approval to a theme park filled with genetically engineered dinosaurs, but the giant reptiles are soon running amok. Top-notch computer effects ensure that the dinosaurs themselves are terrifyingly believable (more so than the PG certificate would suggest), but by the half-way point, it's more or less a chase movie with superior technology.

From acclaimed writer/director Miranda July comes a profoundly moving and wildly original comedy.

During a desperate, hastily conceived heist, they charm a stranger (Gina Rodriguez) into joining their next scam, only to have their entire world turned upside down.

One-eyed origami expert Kubo (Parkinson) joins forces with no-nonsense Monkey (Theron) and goofy human/insect warrior Beetle (McConaughey) on a quest to defeat the Moon King (Fiennes). Breathtakingly beautiful stop-motion animation, maybe too scary for young kids, but with plenty of humour, fine voice performances and a story full of heart.

  • Directed by: Wes Craven
  • Cast: John Saxon, Ronee Blakley, Heather Langenkamp, Amanda Wyss, Nick Corri, Johnny Depp, Robert Englund

Perhaps the quintessential teenage slasher flick, A Nightmare on Elm Street obliterates the distinction between fantasy and reality. Nancy (Langenkamp) and her friends Glen (Depp), Tina (Amanda Wyss) and Rod (Nick Corri), discover they’re all being stalked in their dreams by the grotesque psychopath Freddie Krueger (Englund). As Krueger begins to systematically target each of them, the teens must stay awake for long enough to formulate a plan to stop him, or become mincemeat at the hand of his notorious razor-blade glove …

Norman (Smit-McPhee) can communicate with the dead, which complicates his life when he's tasked with protecting his town from a centuries-old curse. A funny and stylish kids' film, but given the reanimated corpses and terrifying witch, it's worth making sure your little 'un is prepared for terror as well as laughs.

Arnie and his dirty half-dozen are hired to enter a dense South American jungle to free a hostage, but lurking unseen in the foliage is a chameleon-like being waiting to skin alive any unsuspecting human to cross its path. Slow to build, but ultimately gripping macho mayhem with a real sense of threat.

Hitch's misogynistic masterpiece has a young secretary take off to hicksville with a bagful of her boss' money. Unfortunately for her, she chooses to put up at the Bates' Motel, run by that nice Norman boy. The ironic dialogue ('Mother's not quite herself today') make it a joy to catch any time around. We liked it, didn't we mother … mother?

  • Written by: Quentin Tarantino
  • Cast: John Travolta, Samuel L Jackson, Uma Thurman, Harvey Keitel, Tim Roth, Amanda Plummer, Maria de Medeiros, Ving Rhames, Eric Stoltz, Rosanna Arquette, Christopher Walken, Bruce Willis

Much more ambitious than Reservoir Dogs, the most awaited second feature of the 90s has many scenes that crackle with Tarantino wit, and a few others that fall flat as the writer-director bravely experiments. Interlocking stories in the pulp crime manner concern hitmen, ailing boxers, gang bosses and their molls, drug fiends, and assorted riff-raff.

The cult film to end all others, this rock spoof on old horror movies has created a breed of Rocky Horror crazies, and packs them in at late shows everywhere. The film has its moments, and Curry is splendidly camp as the bisexual Frank N Furter.

Maud (Clark) is an obsessively religious nurse, working in palliative care for retired dancer Amanda (Ehle), whose uninhibited lifestyle sets Maud on edge. Impressive first feature from Glass, which turns into a surreal nightmare of loneliness and doom: barnstorming performances from Clark and Ehle set the screen on fire.

Following a series of horrific serial murders, imprisoned psycho-killer Hopkins is released to help Foster and Glenn's FBI agents track down the culprit.

Hugely imaginative animated adventure which dispenses with the familiar origin story and looks like a comic come to life. Hilarious, original and exhilarating.
