Zombeavers

Zombeavers

★★½☆ – (2014) – A trio of females, and their unexpected male companions, fight for their lives against toxic beavers. As stupid as a movie can get, but has the good sense to not pretend to have a single mark of wit. Features highly amusing scenes of gore and nudity that make the short length a breeze to get through.

WolfCop

WolfCop

★★☆☆ – (2014) – An alcoholic officer of the law is also a violent shape-shifter. Has some truly maniacal and gruesome moments, and a decent amount of humor, but by the end becomes too wrapped up in a substandard plot. Moves faster than necessary, but does have fun moments.

Gone Girl

Gone Girl

★★☆☆ – (2014) – A man’s wife goes missing and he takes the blame, but the cause is more twisted than he anticipates. Moves fast through the 149-minute length, and always presents reasons to figure out what’s happening. The end results are frustrating, however, since the villain’s schemes are overmuch and the victims never rise above aloof.

Baghead

Baghead

★★½☆ – (2008) – Four dysfunctional friends retreat to the woods to whip up a screenplay, but find themselves stalked by a madman. The relationships are realistic enough to hold all the weight, which is beneficial since there’s hardly any horror. Skirts by on dramatics that are easy to relate to, though the outcome is rather lame.

The Mummy Resurrected

Mummy Resurrected, The

★☆☆☆ – (2014) – A group of girls and their wannabe Indiana Jones instructor encounter a possessing force. Calling this horror is a long shot since most every occurrence features clean clothed idiots wandering around a filthy underground. Blood is puked here and there, but so too is talent.

The Cavern

Cavern, The

★½☆☆ – (2005) – A group of friends who understand the ghostly past of a cave proceed with spelunking anyway. Thinks screaming characters and a shaking camera can equal scares, but is sorely mistaken. An inept mess that tries to mean something in the end, but by then is too stunningly empty to prove any points.

It Follows

★★★☆ – (2014) – A young woman is infected with a sexually transmitted curse that has apparitions following her wherever she goes. Has a slew of shocking moments and an overall aura of tension that’s hard to shake. Comes down to a story of friendship, which is carried by believable characters and solid performances. Unique and nerve wracking.
