Night of the Living Dead
D: George A. Romero (1968) 96m


A low-budget cult classic of dubious genre credentials that critic John Clute explains is sci-fi "...in the guise of horror". Zombies reanimated by radiation from Venus go on a rampage while setting up a few moral dilemmas in the process. Criticised on release for its excessive gore, the film was eventually deemed important enough to make it into the U.S. National Film Registry.

Aliens
D: James Cameron (1986) 137m


A rare sequel that manages to outdo the original, which is a fine film also. Sigourney Weaver is again terrific as Ripley, the only one left alive after the original 1979 Alien movie. A squadron of Marines heads off to the home planet of the nasty aliens, intent on wiping them out. Winner of Academy Awards for both Sound Effects Editing and Visual Effects, out of seven nominations overall.

The Fly
D: David Cronenberg (1986) 100m


Gross-out master David Cronenberg delivers a remarkably effective remake of the original 1958 classic. An affable but slightly off-beam scientist (Jeff Goldblum) tests a genetic matter transporter and ends up morphing into a human fly. Geena Davis plays his romantic interest and it becomes obvious that love doesn't conquer all. The largest commercial success of Cronenberg's career.

Twenty-eight days after a killer virus was accidentally unleashed from a British research facility, a small group of London survivors are caught in a desperate struggle to protect themselves from the infected. Carried by animals and humans, the virus turns those it infects into homicidal maniacs... and it's absolutely impossible to contain. Sounds familiar.

A Quiet Place
D: John Krasinski (2018) 90m


Over three months in 2020, most human and animal populations have been wiped out by sightless extraterrestrial creatures that originated from a meteor shower impacting Earth. The creatures, attacking anything that makes noise, have hypersensitive hearing and indestructible, armored skin. An unusually engaging horror film loaded with love and featuring a delectably ironic climax.
