– (2014) – Zombies with soft skulls force the non-infected to outlast them by any means. Has a lot going on, moves fast, and is well-made from a directorial standpoint, but the story is a common drag. Emotional and humorous situations feel forced, and nothing relevant is known of any character aside from brief flashbacks.
– (2018) – A few dinosaurs are rescued from a volcanic realm while a newly constructed breed makes trouble in a facility. Peaks 30-minutes in after an exciting lava chase, but the rest is a contest in which means less: the stale plot or the stale characters. Has some dark moments, but when the only sympathy is geared toward CGI monsters, something is seriously wrong.
– (2013) – Jewelry store robbers, one of their young sons, and a cab driver end up the targets of witches who plan mankind’s fall. Begins as a humorous heist film with no traces of horror, but waiting for the witch scenario to take flight is worth the effort. Eventually does whatever it wants to do to provide shocks and humor, and ultimately stands out as a mark of pure lunacy.
– (1976) – A demon is killing people beneath NYC, and rival gangs are taking the blame. Has enough scenes of badly staged martial arts to hold some attention, but even with all the fighting this doesn’t take long to start dragging. The monster activity isn’t too bad, but there isn’t enough of it to go around.
– (1982) – Nazis lure the women of a martial arts crew to an island where the dead consume females to survive. A strange and bombastic blend of fighting among humans and zombies that tosses in a ton of nudity along the way. Gets tiring after a while, and the low-level humor tends to kill the fun, but it’s nearly impossible to look away from.
