XBox: The Official Magazine - - EXTRA -

01 X-MEN: AP OCALYPSE

Price £9.99 (Movies and TV) If Days Of Fu­ture Past felt like a re­turn to X-Men bril­liance, Apoca­lypse stomps it into the ground like Jug­ger­naut hav­ing a tem­per tantrum. The usu­ally mag­netic Os­car Isaac is hid­den be­neath blue la­tex and all Michael Fass­ben­der does is shout. Please stop.

02 THE GREASY STRANGLER

Price £7.99 (Movies and TV) Jim Hosk­ing’s de­but is a hi­lar­i­ous and often provoca­tive piece of film­mak­ing. A smudged love let­ter to John Waters and cult films like

The Toxic Avenger, it com­bines disco, fast food, rub­ber penises and a small-town se­rial killer called, ahem, Big Ron­nie.

03 UN­DER THE SHADOW

Price £13.99 (Movies and TV)

Un­der The Shadow is the most ac­claimed horror of the year, and it’s easy to see why. Blend­ing Mid­dle-Eastern mythol­ogy with chill­ing fairy tale set-pieces, an Ira­nian fam­ily are plagued by a djinn (evil spirit) af­ter a mis­sile crashes into their home.

04 MY SCIENTOLOG­Y MOVIE

Price £7.99 (Movies and TV) Ev­ery­one’s favourite doc-man Louis Th­er­oux takes on Scientolog­y in his first fea­ture film. Un­for­tu­nately, it never reaches the heights of clas­sic Louis, lack­ing the hu­mour of Weird

Week­ends and the in­quis­i­tive, wide-eyed in­tel­lect that bol­stered his ear­lier works.

05 THE NIGHT OF

Price £18.99 (Movies and TV) If you’re pin­ing for an inky, crime-rid­dled TV show, wel­come to The Night Of. A young man wakes up af­ter a night of booz­ing to find the body of a girl ly­ing next to him in bed. It’s a shock­ing study of crime, race and fam­ily, and may leave you numb.

06 ASH VS EVIL DEAD

Price £19.99 (Movies and TV) Bruce Camp­bell reprises his role from The Evil Dead films in this glo­ri­ous throw­back. An an­ti­dote to plod­ding, end­lessly bleak zom­bie shows like The Walk­ing Dead, Ash Wil­liams in­tro­duces a new gen­er­a­tion to chain­saw-wield­ing, mon­ster-hack­ing bliss.
