– (1968) – Vampires and a werewolf come to blows at Frankenstein’s castle. A complete mess that makes absolutely no sense thanks largely to editing that appears to have been accomplished with a lawnmower. Some of the rare spots of horror are worth a gander, but the rest is mercilessly dull.
– (2017) – A woman who’s been battling a corporate viral outbreak for many years returns to the epicenter of her problems to end all the madness. Follows the same formula as the previous entries by placing computerized technology over any human traits. A jumbled mess that has no flow, no involvement, and no reassurance that this is actually the end.
– (2016) – A vampire in a shiny leather coat aims to stop her kind from fighting werewolves in shiny leather coats. Yet another preposterous, pompous, and pretentious entry in a never-ending series that continues to take itself too seriously despite a severe lack of originality. Bloated CGI mumbo jumbo for an audience that couldn’t possible be asking for more entries.
– (2015) – A theme park centered around deadly dinosaurs falls under attack from deadly dinosaurs. The characters are so blatantly empty that soulless animals gradually become the emotional heroes. A long, dull, and obvious rehash of events already seen in previous installments. This series is evolving in the wrong direction.
– (2015) – A suburban family loses their youngest daughter to the angry forces within their haunted house. A goofy, teen friendly ghost story that never dares touch the non-PC heights of the original, and thereby turns itself into a safe, polished joke. Not awful, but never frightening or innovative.
– (2011) – A man drives out of hell to claim his granddaughter from a Satanic cult. Piles on a ton of blood drenched action scenes, and moves at a breakneck speed, but for too long leaves character motivations to question. The conclusion rectifies this matter in a rather emotional way, but getting there too often feels hollow.
– (2014) – A monster once targeted for destruction returns to rescue humanity from winged creatures. Follows the basic pattern of epic disaster movies, but forgets to include one single character who warrants one single emotion. The brief action segments are appreciatively dark, but the film as a whole is a wasted opportunity to reinvent a cinematic behemoth.
