The director of the cult classics El Top and The Holy Mountain, Alejandro Jodorowsky has created a Felliniesque new film Endless Poetry. Dazzlingly shot on location by cinematographer extraordinaire Christopher Doyle (Wong Kar Wai’s In the Mood for Love), this colour-splashed sequel to his previous film Dance of Reality draws a heartfelt if comically absurd portrait of a young man growing into his identity.

The late George Romero created many brilliant horror films but none as ferocious as Dawn of the Dead, his follow up to his 1968 debut, Night of the Living Dead. As we pick up the story four survivors hijack a helicopter and escape to a suburban shopping mall where they stock up on supplies to face the impending zombie apocalypse.

As strange and enduring as the works of Terence Malik or David Lynch, this mysterious, haunting film must be seen in a theatre to truly appreciate its hypnotic impact. Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara portray a couple who have just moved into a new house in Texas. No sooner have they settled in when a tragic car accident takes the man's life. Director Lowery crafts a soulful and romantic portrait of life after death and a beautifully intimate meditation on some of life’s most epic and profound questions.

A beautiful new 4k restoration of a horror classic. Young American ballet student Suzy Bannion (Jessica Harper) arrives in Germany to train at the renowned Tanz dance academy, steps out of Freiburg airport and is instantly submerged in a surrealistic nightmare world of witchcraft, anxiety and blood in Dario Argento’s singular 1977 groundbreaker.
