Some parents will do anything for their children. Others are super cringe. This week, we get familial with Incantation (Taiwan, 2022), a chilling found footage about a cursed mother who masterfully breaks the fourth wall, and Unwelcome (United Kingdom & Ireland, 2022), a clumsy fairy tale horror with nods to Cat's Eye. Also, a killer elevator flick - maybe? - and a queer Australian slasher drop this week on Tubi and VOD.

Incantation: Motion Picture Terror Scale: 4.66. Quality: 5. Enjoyment: 4.66

Unwelcome: MPTS: 2. Quality: 2.66. Enjoyment: 2.33
