Original – Streams May 2
The Ancestral is directed by Le-Van Kiet who also directed the fantastic action thriller Furie (2019).

A father and his two daughters move into their family’s ancestral home. They soon begin having terrifying experiences, but is this a case of a haunted house, or is it all in their heads?

Project Wolf Hunting (2022)

Exclusive – Streams May 15
Part sci-fi thriller, part action movie, and completely soaked in blood and gore, Project Wolf Hunting is one of the best movies of the year.

From South Korea, Project Wolf Hunting is an incredibly gory and claustrophobic action-horror movie. A group of dangerous criminals are transported from the Philippines to South Korea via a cargo ship. The criminals get loose, and they are determined to get revenge on every single one of their captors. To make matters worse for both sides, an experimental monster hidden away in the bowels of the ship wakes up just in time to join the bloody chaos. After you’ve seen the movie, take a look at our explainer article detailing the finer points of the film’s complicated backstory.

Creepypasta (2023)

Exclusive – Streams May 23
The term “creepypasta” refers to a short horror story passed around on the internet. Essentially it’s like a digital version of an urban legend, getting copied and pasted rather than being told and retold audibly.

In this horror anthology film, a man tries to find clues to help him escape an abandoned house. The answers may be contained within a series of viral videos he watches…

The Barn Part II (2022)

Exclusive – Streams May 26
