From the mind-altering and unclassifiable to fantasy, sci-fi and horror.
Have you ever had the feeling that you’re being watched? From the ultra contemporary chills of It Follows, through to the quiet unease of Jamie Marks is Dead, and stopping off in Texas for a spot of chainsaw massacring along the way, it’s a sensation that the poor folk who populate this year’s Cult strand know all too well.
