1. The Night Comes for Us (2018)
For any sadistic soul who watched The Raid and thought: ‘That was good and all, but it could use more violence’, Indonesian director Timo Tjahjanto would like a word. The Night Comes for Us is wall-to-wall carnage, a cartoonishly ghastly ordeal in which throngs of fighters sustain all manner of injury courtesy of blunt objects, bladed edges and fists that function like meat tenderisers. It’s a breathlessly ghastly triad flick that will get your blood pumping while the red stuff paints the walls, with The Raid alumnis Iko Uwais and Joe Taslim taking the spotlight amid waves of foes. It’s a film best followed by an ice bath.
