Simon Morris looks at a lucky dip of movies - a family fantasy, an extended home movie travelogue and an optimistic first part of a new horror franchise. IF is about a girl who discovers a world of Imaginary Friends of children who've outgrown them. Can she find them new homes, and can they get her through some personal traumas? Starring Ryan Reynolds, Cailey Fleming and a host of celebrity voice talent as the Ifs. Directed by John Krasinski (A quiet place). The Way my way is the film of director Bill Bennett's book about how he walked the 800 kilometre pilgrims' walk, the Camino de Santiago. Many of the people in the book play themselves in the film. And, The Strangers: Chapter 1 is the first part of an extended remake of the 2008 Liv Tyler horror film. Once again a young couple is terrorized in a secluded house by three mysterious masked figures with no apparent motive. Directed by the notorious Renny Harlin (Cutthroat Island).
