Children of the Full Moon

Children of the Full Moon

★½☆☆ – (1980) – A married couple having car trouble happen upon a manor that contains werewolf children. A dull slog that shows characters constantly talking, but not nearly enough of the horror they speak of. Ends on a predictable note that’s just as tiresome and the preceding moments.

Rude Awakening

Rude Awakening

★★☆☆ – (1980) – An unhappily married man has premonitions of a dead woman and dreams of a beautiful one. Has a few intriguing moments that question dreams versus reality, but often goes about itself in an off-putting, corny manner. Worth sitting through, but leaves no lasting impressions.

The Thirteenth Reunion

Thirteenth Reunion, The

★★☆☆ – (1980) – A journalist investigates the murder of a man who’s not placed in his coffin. The mystery elements and drawn characters are decent at first, but the story gradually becomes more and more sluggish. The twist ending is okay, and the final shot is a good one, but overall this is a bit dry and uneventful.

Curse of the Headless Horseman

Curse of the Headless Horseman

★½☆☆ – (1972) – People are picked off at a Western tourist attraction, allegedly by a decapitated murder victim. Begins as a whodunit complete with obvious red herrings, but turns into a shootout over gold. A dull chunk of slop that only holds interest in wondering what banality could occur next, while horror takes a backseat to cheese.

Carnival of Blood

Carnival of Blood

★★½☆- (1970) – Someone’s picking off selfish women at Coney Island, and only one dumbass cop is on the case. Gets off to a good start with genuine humor and moderate violence, but has a structural pattern that repeats too often. The killer’s motive is different, and events gradually become more twisted, but most of this is pretty common and cheap.

Attack of the 60 Foot Centerfold

Attack of the 60 Foot Centerfold

★½☆☆ – (1995) – A model in need of standing out from her peers drinks a growth serum that increases her size, as well as one of her colleagues. Gives excuses for sporadic nudity, but the plot seems to want to focus on a story when all anyone wants to see is the battle between two gigantic bimbos. Cheapens the values of women, sleaze, and special effects.
