– (1998) – A young man falls under the spell of a watery witch who can’t ditch her oppressors of the past or present. Begins as a total bore that slowly improves when bringing in new ideas. Convoluted, but at least tries to mean something while traveling between eras.
– (1980) – The well-to-do are invited to a mansion where a comatose patient with telekinesis abides. The titular subject is hardly seen until the end, which is fine since the movie is better when he’s off screen. Most of this consists of sleazy, violent, and vulgar events that fall upon unessential (but easy on the eyes) characters.
– (1989) – Anthology of four stories that focus on an addict and his dog, vengeful vampires, hardcore drug addition, and graveyard dirt. A complete mess that lacks overall focus and a means to tie these stories into the opening shooting rampage. Has okay moments scattered about, but fails as a whole.
– (1992) – A scientist loses his arm during an experiment, only to find that arm alive and violently active. Somewhat succeeds on quirkiness and a sense of not taking matters too seriously, but when all is said and done, this never makes much of a point and seems to create weirdness for the sake of weirdness. Odd, but pretty dim.
– (1973) – A newspaper reporter investigates a series of strangulation murders that remind him of a former case. Feels like a repeat of the previous film, but with much less relevant humor and detective work. The stab at horror is commendable, but the comedy and drama wear out their welcome in a hurry.
