The Bride with White Hair 2

Bride with White Hair 2, The

★★½☆ – (1994) – A band of inexperienced warriors plan to take on their deadliest foe. A bit sloppy where editing is concerned, but the first half is full of humor while the second deals with true emotion. An imperfect but enjoyable time.

Meat Weed Madness

Meat Weed Madness

★½☆☆ – (2006) – A group of girls smoke weed laced with human meat, take their clothes off, and are harassed by cheap monsters. Takes zaniness to new levels of nothingness, and can never be classified a narrative film. The nudity is impressive, but most everything else is rotten.

Bad Reputation

Bad Reputation

★★☆☆ – (2005) – An innocent girl who’s raped at a party becomes a vigilante against her oppressors. Somewhat well made, but the drama is overbearing, the motives too quickly realized, and the character arcs too typical. Might have worked better if the bulk of the gore wasn’t off screen.

Lucky Bastard

Lucky Bastard

★★☆☆ – (2014) – A humiliated porn actor seeks revenge on those who shamed him. Showcases some behind the scenes moments of what might actually occur on heated porn shoots, but the horror aspects are incredibly thin. Sleazy and involving, but too desperate to come across as real.

Skeleton Key 2: 667 Neighbor of the Beast

Skeleton Key 2

★½☆☆ – (2008) – A journalist visits a town called Nilbog, where the inhabitants consist of vampires, goblins, and sluts. The punishing two hour length is almost easy to withstand thanks to a maniacal variety of ideas and a quick pace. Too often obnoxious, though, and isn’t really about anything.

They Don’t Cut the Grass Anymore

They Don't Cut the Grass Anymore

★★☆☆ – (1985) – Two hillbillies mutilate men and women who lead better lives than them. Complete garbage from a cinematic standpoint, but has impressive backyard gore. Ambitious in its strive to nauseate, but the story is worthless.

Kill for Me

KIll for Me

★½☆☆ – (2013) – Best friends come to blows over the deaths of their ex-boyfriends. Has a scene or two outside exploitative lesbianism than means anything, but most of what occurs is laughably melodramatic. Too self-absorbed to realize how unoriginal it is.

The Bates Haunting

Bates Haunting, The

★★☆☆ – (2012) – A girl who’s still not over her friend’s death at a Haunted Hayride is put on a killer’s chopping black. Despite some rancid comedy, the scenario and horror aspects aren’t half bad. Typical, but not hard to get through at a scant 76-minutes.

Taintlight

Taintlight

★½☆☆ – (2009) – A brooding girl falls for a goofy vampire who has issues with flamboyant werewolves. Spoofs Twilight in too-obvious fashion, and never exploits the true weakness of those films: languid self-importance. Has a moment or two worth chuckling over, but is never entirely fun.

Freakshow Apocalypse: The Unholy Sideshow

Freakshow Apocalypse

★½☆☆ – (2007) – Circus freaks come to blows with a pair of magicians who determine the fate of mankind. Feels more like a commercial for a “sadistic” sideshow than a legitimate weird vs. evil film. Mercifully short, but hard to tell what’s going on and why.
