Hair-raising horror-fest Spiral is the gay spin on Get Out and Hereditary we’ve all been waiting for. It’s the 1990s, and Aaron (Ari Cohen) and Malik (Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman) move from the big city with their teenage daughter so they can enjoy the quieter, small town life. The locals are a bit surprised by the arrival of this ‘unconventional’ family, but they give them a warm welcome nonetheless. Then a disturbing run-in with an elderly neighbour leaves Malik shaken. It doesn’t take long for him to suspect that the neighbours are hiding a terrifying – and deadly – secret.
Spiral is an enthralling psychological thriller anchored in fantastic characters, writing and acting. – Gayly Dreadful
