Ryan Reynolds is a guy in a bit of a spot: he’s a trucker captured by Iraqi terrorists and buried alive in a wooden coffin – and he’s only got a rapidly dying mobile and the fairly inept US military to get him out.
It’s easily the most unspeakably tense 95 minutes you’ll ever spend in a cinema, but it’s also nail-gnawingly gripping to the very last. A must-see.
Unless you’re claustrophobic.
The Human Centipede
Got a strong stomach? Lover of ridiculously disgusting horror movies? Then step right this way!
The gruesome premise here is quite simple: a deranged professor lures in lost travellers and stitches them together in the most gruesome way possible.
So vile, it becomes fairly amusing after a while, but it’s probably not one to stick on with the girlfriend…
The Disappearance Of Alice Creed
That Gemma Arterton, she’s everywhere right now, isn’t she?
And here she is, abducted, tied to a bed and totally humiliated by two kidnappers. Which isn’t really as sexy as it sounds.
This is a surprisingly gripping, low-budget British flick, with Arterton excellent as the gritty heiress, proving there’s more to her talents than bee-sting pouts and sexily jogging in a toga.
Modern Family Season 1
A little overlooked over on Sky1, comedy fans will know all about this The Office-meets-Arrested Development US import.
We follow a very extended and dysfunctional family, with a wry mockumentary style flitting between some cringey embarrassment and amazing one-liners.
Plus, brace yourselves for Sofia Vergara: officially TV’s hottest MILF.
