Father’s Day

Father's Day

★½☆☆ – (2011) – A vigilante who once killed the wrong person hunts for the culprit who’s murdering fathers. Tries hard to offend through religion, rape, and self-mutilation, but is too dull to warrant any concern. The gimmick of having been shot in the ’80s simply doesn’t work, as this is clearly drivel of the ’10s.

The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence)

Human Centipede III

★½☆☆ – (2015) – The scumbag character who made Human Centipede II based on his enjoyment of Human Centipede I uses a prison to continue his exploits. Does little but provide irritation from the perpetually screaming warden and his forced sexism/racism. Adds nothing new aside from the extension of centipede length, yet nobody within the link means squat.

The Pact II

Pact 2, The

★★☆☆ – (2014) – A young woman becomes the victim of nightmares over a past killer and the reality of his copycat. Delivers some goods now and then, from attempting to build on the first film’s mystery to its own (light) frights. Not exactly well crafted, and leaves little reason to ask for another entry.

Bloodspit

Bloodspit

★☆☆☆ – (2008) – A man in glasses tries to steal a crest ring from vampires in bad wigs. A pathetic concoction of pointless farting, pitiful gore, and plentiful cameltoes. Hasn’t a plot to speak of, while the cheap locations suggest a two-day shoot.

Nightcrawler

Nightcrawler

★★½☆ – (2014) – A freelance cameraman goes through unlawful and unethical means of filming controversial tragedies. Gripping during the first two acts, thanks to a commanding and creepy performance by Jake Gyllenhaal. Takes illogical turns toward the end, and unfortunately winds down on a corny note.

Killer Yacht Party

Killer Yacht Party

★½☆☆ – (2006) – A group of girls bribe their way onto a boat party where a killer lurks. No concern is raised for any character, who range from spoiled and despicable to innocent and weak. Rips off movies that aren’t great to begin with, and does nothing to elevate above useless (especially since every murder is so badly edited).

Shock Treatment

Shock Treatment

★½☆☆ – (1981) – A married couple end up on a TV show where the audience sings along to their awful songs. Creative only in its ability to provide rhyming lyrics, but none of the tracks propel the so-called plot. Aims directly for the cult status of Rocky Horror, but can’t find footing on shaky ground.
