The Platform (2019) – Review

When a man known only as Goreng (Ivan Massague) signs up to voluntarily become a prisoner of a vertical system that holds two people per cell, per floor, he quickly comes to the realisation that he has signed up for more than just six months of solitary confinement. Each cell has just two minutes per day to feast on the platform of food that they are presented with and the lower the platform goes, the less food there is.

The Visit (2015) – Review

When two children first meet and consequently spend an entire week at their grandparents’ house, things begin to become complicated as the youngsters start unearthing worrying signs and dark secrets about their relatives. Becca (Olivia DeJonge) is the older of the two children and with help from her brother, Tyler (Ed Oxenbould), she decides to use this trip as an opportunity to film a documentary, but the budding filmmaker bit off slightly more than she could chew.
