This London-based psychological horror, EVE, is about talented but struggling actress Bex Learey (Rachel Warren), who fails to land the role of her dreams. This spins her into a dark and dangerous obsession with the up-and-comer who gets the part. Shot by veteran Stanley Kubrick cinematographer, Doug Milsome (Full Metal Jacket), EVE is writer/director Rory Kindersley’s feature film debut.

Less of a spooky horror than a sci-fi thriller, this is the latest in the Alien franchise – and it’s a decent watch. It stars our own Michael Fassbender and Katherine Waterston. The crew of a colony ship that lands on a remote planet – guess what they discover has been living there?
