The Last Exorcism (2010)

‘The Last Exorcism’ is yet another found-footage supernatural horror film I have watched in recent times, including Paranormal Activity and Grave Encounters.

Offender (2012) – A Prison Revenge Thriller

Call it a London gangland drama or a prison revenge thriller, “OFFENDER” is a masterpiece in terms of acting from its lead character.
