– (1974) – An author becomes entangled in plots of satanism, possession, magic, and smut. Not the easiest to describe, but isn’t too hard to watch as some characters are decent enough to spend time with. Slow and drab, but has enough going on to hold attention.
– (2017) – A married couple moves into a house with a demonic secret, and quickly fall victim to its quirky designs. Gets off to a hilarious start, which sets the stage for the kooky shenanigans that follow. Won’t win over anyone who wants logic with their characters, but they do provide an awful lot of fun.
– (2017) – The survivor of Hatchet III is trapped in a downed plane with those looking to bank on the legend of Victor Crowley. Despite a few lags, this has a ton of great jokes, awesome kills, and an overall sense of fun. Doesn’t reinvent the genre, but shows how to breathe new life into a fourth entry.
– (2018) – A detective investigating a serial killer gets tied up with the judgmental forces of Hell. An ugly production that at first piles on a ton of gore only to abandon such elements for common cop fodder. Seems to head nowhere, but the final act does have a few unexpected turns. Not great, but not nearly as bad as some other entries.
– (2017) – People who fled Earth to avoid Godzilla return to destroy him. The action scenes have something of a pulse, but the rest is sheer boredom at its most mundane. The script is particularly awful, as every single line of dialog sounds written by a three-year-old who watches too many cartoons.
