Synopsis

Collection of eight horror films. The 'Boy Next Door' (2015) follows recent divorcee Claire Peterson (Jennifer Lopez) whose attraction to her much-younger neighbour Noah Sandborn (Ryan Guzman) gets her into a lot of trouble when she finds out that the young man has become obsessed with her. Not content with the one-night stand they shared together while she was in a vulnerable state of mind, Noah begins to blackmail Claire and manages to manoeuvre his way into her home and work life with terrible consequences... In 'Get Out' (2017), with their relationship becoming serious, Rose (Alison Williams) invites her African-American boyfriend Chris (Daniel Kaluuya) to meet her parents Missy and Dean (Catherine Keener and Bradley Whitford) as part of a weekend getaway at her family home. Initially, Chris thinks that the family's overly friendly behaviour is due to their nervousness about their daughter's interracial relationship, but when he then finds out that a number of black people have recently gone missing in the neighbourhood, he begins to realise there is something much more sinister going on. In 'Ouija' (2014), when their friend is killed in a freak accident after using a Ouija board, a close-knit group decide to test out the board themselves to find out the real cause of her death. What they don't realise is that their friend has opened a portal to the spirit world and has let a demonic presence enter her home, and one by one the group are made to face their darkest fears as the powers of the board overwhelm them. In 'Ouija: Origin of Evil' (2016), after Los Angeles widower Alice Zander (Elizabeth Reaser) adds a new prop to her fraudulent séance business, she inadvertently invites genuine evil into her home. When youngest daughter Doris (Lulu Wilson) attempts to talk to her father through the new Ouija board, she becomes possessed by an evil spirit, causing a number of sinister events to occur. When Alice and eldest daughter Paulina (Annalise Basso) begin to experience disturbing visions themselves, they are forced to turn to a local priest for help. In 'Split' (2017) Kevin (James McAvoy) is a man who suffers from dissociative identity disorder, meaning that he exhibits numerous distinct personalities which affect his behaviour. Kevin becomes driven to kidnap three young girls - Casey (Anya Taylor-Joy), Claire (Haley Lu Richardson) and Hannah (Kim Director) - on their way to a party. While trapped, the girls witness Kevin's personality shift repeatedly and try desperately to figure out a way to escape. Kevin has therapy sessions with Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), who slowly realises that Kevin is on the verge of a devastating mental breakdown. As she tries to convince her colleagues that someone with as serious a condition as Kevin can forcibly alter their physiology with their mind, Kevin develops a final, monstrous personality... In 'Unfriended' (2014), one year after their classmate Laura (Heather Sossaman) committed suicide after an embarrassing video of her was circulated around the school, six friends log on to Skype to take part in a group chat. But when someone starts using Laura's old account and appears to know the full details about the video and the identities of those responsible for its distribution, the six friends begin to fear for their lives as whoever it is starts to torment them inside their homes... In 'The Veil' (2016) Sarah (Lily Rabe) is the sole survivor of religious cult Heaven's Veil, headed by the deranged Jim Jacobs (Thomas Jane), which committed mass suicide. 25 years on, Sarah returns to the site of the cult with a documentary crew, led by Maggie (Jessica Alba), to document the activities of the group and to find out what really happened that day. In 'The Visit' (2015), while their mother (Kathryn Hahn) is on vacation, a young boy and girl (Ed Oxenbould and Olivia De Jonge) are sent to stay with their grandparents (Deanna Dunagan and Peter McRobbie). After being warned not to leave their bedroom after 9.30pm and suspecting that something is amiss in the house, the kids start to investigate. But what they find is more frightening than they could ever imagine...
