Director: Guillermo Del Toro
Starring: Mira Sorvino, Jeremy Northam, Josh Brolin
Ingenious science-fiction-horror fable from the director of the excellent vampire movie, Cronos. Mira Sorvino is a doctor who successfully combats a virus that's sweeping New York by developing a rival cockroach species to wipe out the original disease-carriers, in the process inadvertently creating a breed which can assume human form.
Director: Nick Hurran
Starring: Julie Walters, Brenda Blethyn, Kris Kristofferson
Shameless tearjerker with Brenda Blethyn as the cancer-suffering bingo winner who jets off to Las Vegas for a last-chance holiday with her sister- in-law (Julie Walters) and meets a wrinkled rodeo-rider (Kris Kristofferson). Initially bubbly, the picture soon turns grossly manipulative.
