    My Best Friend's Exorcism

    ★★★★

    Bright and breezy bubblegum pop, My Best Friend’s Exorcism proves demonic possessions don’t have to just be dark and harrowing. A film which continues its source materials mantra of fun, frights and friendship My Best Friend’s Exorcism is the perfect tonic to some of the more disturbing genre films on the circuit right now. An adaptation that keeps the essence of its origin whilst changing things to open the story out to a wider audience, Thomas’ feature debut is sure to win over the teen crowd.

    ★★★★

    One woman between two brothers is a story that has been told since stories started to be told. Here though Friend deviates from anticipated beats and presents a claustrophobic chamber piece that clouds everyone’s intentions. It’s only during the final few scenes that everyone’s true feelings and designs are revealed. The revelations kick the action from zero to a hundred and there’s a devilish wickedness to what Friend is hiding up his sleeve. All the prior character work pays off…

    Dinner in America

    ★★★★★

    Kyle Gallner and Emily Skeggs are f**king phenomenal in this punk rock love letter to finding yourself, and the one you love in the unlikeliest of places.

    Dinner in America is an assault to the senses that really captures the attitude of punk-rock whilst at the same time crafting a quirky tale of love and self-empowerment. A joyously dark-hearted journey through suburban America that taps into the magic of films like Heathers, injects them with the spirit of punk rock and creates an instant hit that has the potential to shape a generation. In short, it’s the tits.
