The V/H/S franchise combines two mainstays of the horror genre: found footage and the anthology format. The hook here is that every grainy segment is written and directed by different people – often the biggest names in horror.
And it’s a wild ride, with each film offering a mix of scares and gore.

Brian and Charles is a feature length adaptation of the 2017 short fil of the same name. Starring and written by David Earl and Chris Hayward and directed by Jim Archer, the film is a bittersweet and often hilarious look at lonliness and letting go.

With the imminent release of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness, and following the multiversal hi-jinks of Spider-Man: No Way Home, the lines between the canon MCU films and the other ‘legacy’ films are becoming more and more blurred and in the upcoming Doctor Strange sequel it appears Patrick Stewart’s Professor Charles Xavier is about to make a return.
To honour this, I thought I would whittle down the 60+ films based on Marvel Comics to just the top 5. That’s 1998’s Blade all the way through to Spider-Man: No Way Home.

It’s a gross-out splatter-fest, earning it’s 15 rating in almost every minute of run time, but with a big ol’ heart underneath all the guts and gore. It’s not entirely perfect, but it’s a hell of a lot of fun and is undoubtedly the DCEU’s best movie yet.
