movies & tv
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.
