– (2001) – A rock and roll imposter intends to crash a plane into a church, unless the real rock and roller can stop him. Moves fast and provides quite a few corny moments that all lead to a goofy good time. You haven’t really lived until you’ve seen a man in goth makeup struggle to land a plane.
– (1999) – Already frightened passengers are further disrupted by a hijacker who has no choice but to let one of them land the plane. The plot is the pits, as the villain’s motive lacks any conviction or merit. There is one awesomely bombastic murder, but everything else is stale and dopey.
– (1957) – A brain from outer space attempts world domination by possessing a scientist. Dumb as a stone from the onset, and crawls through one drab progression after another. Always ridiculous, but never in a truly fun way since there are more yawns provided than laughs.
– (2018) – U.S soldiers trapped in Germany discover Nazi experiments that bring the dead back to life. Gets off to a rip roaring start before settling onto a long path of mediocrity. Not the first of its kind, and won’t be the last, but somehow won critics over despite offering nothing fresh (the Dead Snow and Outpost films provide just as much).
– (1994) – A cop and his obnoxious partner track an agent of Satan in Israel. Fueled by corn from start to finish, but not in a way that’s overly humorous. The jokes are rather dumb and the action is rather drab, but what’s worse is how stagnant the plot is and how little horror is represented.
– (1994) – A young man who’s mauled by a lion has his brain implanted into a mechanical dinosaur. As preposterous as the plot sounds, this actually sort of works because it knows exactly how stupid it is. Moves fast and blends eye-rolling comedy with some genuinely humorous moments. Sounds like a children’s movie, but is far more risque.
– (1985) – Shipwreck survivors happen upon an island where they’re attacked by doll-like creatures. Follows a droll pattern of watching characters wander before they’re assaulted, but a few dumb events and dumber lines of dialog help maintain attention. Repetitive, to say the least, but does amuse in spots of foolishness.
– (2006) – A group of spies aim to steal a formula that can create life, and unwittingly unleash a dinosaur. The narrative aspects are pitiful, as they’re packed with too much macho nonsense. The monster inclusions, however, are so unbelievably ridiculous they’re almost impossible not to giggle through.
– (2001) – A cop and a wildlife officer investigate murders that lead to a carnosaur creation facility. The plot is nothing new, and most every line spoken is an exercise in stupidity, but the pace is quick and the corn levels high. The monster mayhem is by far the highlight, but there’s not nearly enough of those moments.
– (1990) – A woman is stalked by a serial killer who wears a rubber mask, punches through chests with a claw, and talks like Freddy Krueger. While the murders are okay, the drama is stale beyond belief while the dialog is nauseating. Not an entire chore to get through, but doesn’t leave a lasting impression.
