Refusing to give up on life, Ron goes about finding alternative medicines, ones that haven't been approved by the US government, and opens his own business helping other HIV sufferers. With help from an openly gay, cross dressing man, and shut out by his friends, Ron goes against the odds to prove everyone wrong.
Dallas Buyers Club is an absorbing and at times powerful drama, with the odd moment of humour and great, Oscar winning performances from Matthew McConaughey as Woodroof and Jared Leto as his gay business partner, the two characters' relationship quite touching, and a fine turn from Jennifer Garner to as a nurse compelled by Ron's plight.
Horror based around real life experiments on humans by the US… MoreHorror based around real life experiments on humans by the US government where people reported feeling like something was after them and seeing strange entities and hallucinating.

The Banshee Chapter does a good job of upping the tension on a regular basis and not overdoing it on the scares so when they do come, it fucking works!
Being loosely based on something that actually happened also peaks your interest . Winner of 'Scariest Film' at Total Films Frightfest, The Banshee Chapters real and gritty feel adds another dimension, making it a must see for horror and thriller fans alike.

But not long after they arrive at the house the Polish girl gets knocked out and later awakes tied up in a dirty looking bedroom. Getting introduced to 'mum and dad', she realises she is in the hands of one seriously fucked up family and is made to do chores around the house in turn for food and a roof over her head but this is a family whose dad regularly tortures and murders people to the delight of the mum and perverse pleasure of the daughter and brother, who seemingly were brought in in similar circumstances to our Polish cleaner.
Mum and Dad has quite an interesting, and chillingly familiar, premise as we see an innocent young person brought into a house and physically and mentally fucked with. Something that happens to young girls involved in Trafficing the world over. only fortunately not to this level. But it's brutal nature could well give hardcore horror fans a perverse thrill as things become more tense throughout and the nonchalant, this-is-normal behaviour of the family puts you on edge to. Plus the fact they watch porn at the breakfast table.
Some will no doubt find this repulsive and disgusting but for horror fans Mum and Dad is a twisted treat.
