Dear Mr.Gacy ***** A terrifying psychological thriller that will shock you to the core! It poignantly shows what happens when the obsession of an 18-year-old college student is realised and the quest of his passion turns into a nightmare he will never escape from. This might seem far fetched, but if you take that it is based on the real life story of Jason Moss, who wrote a book The Last Victim after his correspondence with notorious serial killer John Wayne Gacy (and Jeffrey Dahmer and Charles Manson), it becomes even more frightening. Dear.Mr.Gacy focuses on the correspondence between the young student, and Gacy, who is on death row after allegedly murdering 33 boys. Jesse Moss (no relation to the writer) is absolutely superb as the innocent young man whose soul soon becomes corrupted when he discovers that the only way to enter Gacy's mind and score top grades, is to actually step inside the body and soul of one of the killer's typical victims.

The Possession **** When a film is called The Possession and it begins with an ominous soundtrack and a warning 'the following is based on true events', suspending disbelief is optional. If the titles reveal that it is produced by horror maestro Sam Raimi, who changed the face of horror with The Evil Dead, and made by Ghost House Pictures, you are pretty much unnerved before paranormal events arise.

There are only two things that separate captivating terror from tedious torment: a good story that holds your interest and at least one good scare. If there's some great visual or special effects and big budgeted production value, it's a bonus; and if you have a director like Victor Sylva, who toys with your imagination like a kid playing in a sandpit, Rosewood Lane is the kind of horror you can easily settle down to and have some chilling moments in the dark (rule number one: always watch a horror in the dark and number two, make sure that movable objects like pets remain dormant). Rosewood Park lives between that wonderful no-man's land of the supernatural and reality, where fantasy and hallucinations have a feast. When a psychiatrist returns to her childhood home where her dad was found dead, a weird paperboy turns her idyllic closure into a nightmarish hell. Rose McGowan is ideal as the target of malevolence, with Daniel Ross Owens a characters you will definitely not allow near your house!

Some Guy Who Kills People **** A superb dark tale of revenge blended with a poignant father-and-daughter story, features a great performance from Kevin Corrigan, playing a passive nobody who is fresh out of the metal hospital and works as an ice cream parlor in his small hometown.

The Thing **** Fans of this stalwart sci-fi classic will delight in this magnificent prequel that illuminates the frightening origins of a gruesome creature from hell that feeds off unknown terror. The impact of this well crafted 'creature feature' lies in the horrific premise of an unseen killer that lurks in our midst and only reveals its deadly malevolence when identified. Make sure to watch the end titles as it cleverly links the events to John Carpenter's classic and guarantees that you will re-watch it once you get home. What contributes to the success of this hellish nightmare, is that it is not set in suburbia or in familiar surroundings, but places its helpless victims in the icy landscape of Antarctica. Sensitive viewers must be warned that it is a bloody and violent onslaught on the senses. Dutch director Matthijs van Heijningen brilliantly brings Eric Heisserer's cunning script to life; what is interesting is how Heisserer uses familiar situations of Carpenter's classic and turns it inside out. Van Heijningen fully explores the power of the genre and exposes the fragile nature of human beings that triggers a monstrous survival instinct that is equally brutal and unleashes the savage within.
