Films designed to make you uneasy or on edge are often difficult to view. It’s the sense of discomfort or feeling of anticipated horror that makes them so compelling to watch. Like rubber-neckers passing an accident; the urge to look is overwhelming and irresistible. In this mixed offering, each film conjures a sense of anticipation and many deliver an unexpected twist and shock.
