La nuit a dévoré le monde (2018)

After waking up in an apartment the night after a raging party, Sam comes face to face with his new reality: an army of zombies has invaded the streets of Paris, and he is one of the lone survivors.

Thoughts: A solitary, slow-burn, introspective take on the zombie genre with bursts of visceral scares. There are touches of humor, a late unsurprising twist, and the whole is anchored by a protagonist who is, ultimately, a victim of his own making.



A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night (2014)

Residents of a worn-down Iranian city encounter a skateboarding vampire who preys on men who disrespect women.

Thoughts: Art-house horror, stylish but slow, striking but ultimately hollow.



Happy Death Day (2018)

A college student must relive the day of her murder over and over again, in a loop that will end only when she discovers her killer’s identity.

Thoughts: A great concept, well-executed. Very enjoyable – minus a few minor logical inconsistencies.



Willow Creek (2013)

A couple campout in the woods to capture firsthand evidence of Bigfoot.

Thoughts: Slow. And adds nothing new to the found footage sub-genre.
