The UK has always been known for distinctive genre fare, and this week we have a triple dose of British horror to try and prove it. First up is Jake West’s horror-comedy Doghouse, which pits a band of wronged men against a village-ful of killer women.

Finally, from Severance director Christopher Smith – with whom we also have an interview – is another period flick, the religious parable Black Death.
