Both mysterious and horrifying, “Toxic” is a psychological thriller that may well give you knots in your brain. The film follows Maria, a young mother on vacation in a small Argentinian village with her daughter Nina. She meets Carola, also a young mother like her. The latter, however, does not seem close to her strange son David, unlike Maria who is constantly worried about Nina’s safety. The situation becomes all the more complicated when Maria finally realizes that something is wrong. Get ready, the film offers a somewhat oppressive atmosphere that may well get you stuck in front of your TV.

Notice to fans of films that mix both action and SF! “Upgrade” offers a perfect mix of the two, with a mystery to be solved as a bonus. The film tells how Gray, a simple mechanic, finds himself quadriplegic, following an assault with armed hands. That day, Gray not only lost the use of his body, he also lost his wife.

They will also do everything to identify him, arrest this psychopath who initially weakens the students by revealing their most intimate secrets. Do not hesitate to go see this original slasher which reinvents the rules of this horrific style. So get rid of your popcorn, by being alone or accompanied. And let the massacre begin!

“The Battle of the Scheldt” is a moving feature film that tells the horrors of war through the story of three young people: a war pilot, a German soldier and a new recruit to the resistance.
