‘Disturbing’ ★★★★ Total Film ‘The most disturbing horror debut since Hellraiser’ ★★★★ SFX

A young brother and sister, roaming an apocalyptic city, take refuge in the dilapidated lair of a strange hermit.

Trapped in this maddening womb-like world under his malign influence, they find themselves sinking into the realms of forbidden behaviour…

We Are The Flesh

Winning rave reviews at genre film festivals around the world, We Are the Flesh is a beautifully-crafted slice of arthouse cinema that explodes onto the screen in a heady and unsettling mix of graphic imagery that’s not for the faint-hearted but has won plaudits from some Mexico’s most respectable film-makers…

‘I loved this film. It takes over our waking thoughts, like a recurring dream we try to forget, because we are fearful of finding out it may be a memory.’ Alfonso Cuaron (Gravity)

‘We Are the Flesh is a very personal, very powerful film that deeply impressed me.’ Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu (The Revenant)
