– (1920) – A bulky man of clay is constructed and brought to life to ward off a Jewish plague. Neither the titular creation nor anyone involved serve a clear purpose, but forgiveness of such faults must be granted as this was filmed during cinema’s infancy. Mostly a chore to get through, but the visuals do command some respect.
– (1988) – A small family moves to a country home where dead bodies pop up nearby, turning nearly everyone in town into a suspect. A common city folk versus country folk yarn that never bothers to establish any characters. Has decent atmosphere, but the family dynamic, the villains, and the ultimate purposes all fail.
– (2013) – A screenwriter under pressure from his agent to submit new material embarks on a killing spree. Tries to to unfold as a quiet thinking piece, but the pace causes boredom and the story subjects fail to entertain. It’s nice to see some familiar horror faces, but they appear at some truly low expenses.
– (1986) – A group of men go hunting and end up in a violent war with hillbilly deer poachers. A Deliverance/The Hills Have Eyes wannabe that takes an incredibly long time setting up everyday men in kooky situations before getting to the meat of the plot. Sometimes worthwhile, but mostly a silly drag.
