Tower Block (90 mins, 15)

Just as a London council block is due to be demolished, its remaining residents (including Sheridan Smith and Russell Tovey) are trapped on the top floor by a sniper who picks them off when they go anywhere near a window. A tense little B-movie with jump-out-of-your-seat moments.

Hysteria (99 mins, 15)

Someone, evidently, thought that a romcom about the invention of the vibrator would be a great idea, so here we have Hugh Dancy as a Victorian doctor who offers mechanical assistance to women suffering from "hysteria". The stuff about "satisfactory paroxysms" is far less embarrassing than the subplot in which Maggie Gyllenhaal's suffragette helps the needy in an East End refuge.
