4. Hot Fuzz: As a former London constable, Nicholas Angel (Simon Pegg) finds it difficult to adapt to his new assignment in the sleepy British village of Sandford.

5. The Babadook: After reading a seemingly innocent children’s story to her son, a single mother unknowingly invites a sinister presence into her home.

7. The Quiet Ones: An unorthodox college professor leads his best students off the grid to perform a dangerous experiment to create a poltergeist. Operating under the theory that paranormal activity is triggered by negative human energy, the group uses a series of tests to push a young woman to the edge of sanity.

8. Halt and Catch Fire: It’s the early 1980s, and the spirit of innovation in personal computing is about to catch fire.
