Under the Skin - A24 Films - Blu-ray and DVD Director: Jonathan Glazer Cast: Scarlett JohanssonAntonia Campbell-Hughes,Michael Moreland. Full cast + crew Considering it's about an alien (Scarlett Johansson) who visits the remote countryside of Scotland, most people are calling Under the Skin a sci-fi movie. And that's certainly fair game, but that doesn't really sell how utterly terrifying Jonathan Glazer's film is at times. It's not strictly a horror movie, but some of the scenes and imagery here are more bone chilling and unforgettable than anything I've seen in a strict horror movie so far in 2014.  Beautiful and haunting, Under the Skin is a hard film to enjoy, but an easy film to appreciate. Certainly recommended...

A host of young talent is set to star in a new "quantum theory" thriller DxM announced at Cannes today.

Believing this will lead to intellectual equality among humans, the group soon faces dark forces threatening to subvert the technology as an instrument for mass control.

Tom Payne (represented by Curtis Brown) leads the group as Jaxon, described as extremely intelligent and motivated, and the driving force behind the new technology. Tom also recently filmed the leads in The Physician and British indie feature Winter (aka Barking at Trees).

Film archivist David and his wife are perfectly happy—or so he believes. When a looming secret shatters their marriage at the same time as a turn-of-the-century film reel he is studying reveals their house to be the site of a 1902 multiple-murder, David begins to unravel, and the house’s eerie history threatens to repeat itself. Dripping with tension and chilling to the core, this visceral Irish ghost story is a visually arresting and genuinely shocking journey into the darkness within.
