Ski Wolf

★☆☆☆ – (2008) – Rival skiers compete for the domination of a hill while one of them becomes a wolf. A spoof of an already lame movie that does little but exploit ’80s sport cliches. A Chris Sever letdown as too many lines are repeated from other entries and too many once-humorous mannerisms now amount to nothing.

Happy Death Day

★½☆☆ – (2017) – A college student dies over and again on her birthday while trying to figure out why. There’s no way this can’t be compared to the vastly superior Groundhog Day, but even if this were an original idea it still wouldn’t be very good. The biggest blunder are the attempts at comedy when the lead actress simply isn’t funny. Almost okay, but the outcome is a travesty.

Dropping Evil

★☆☆☆ – (2012) – Vacationing friends drug a religious geek which causes him to go on a killing spree. As awful as the initial premise is, worse is the experimental film school nonsense that occurs within. Aims to complicate and confuse, and succeeds, but forgets one major factor: how to entertain.

Clowntergeist

★★☆☆ – (2017) – A girl who’s afraid of clowns is haunted by the ghostly form of one. Hard to condemn since it tries to have commendable characters and horrific moments, yet the payoff is lost to confusion in the skittish plot. Rather stupid and annoying, and the villain isn’t exactly menacing.

Peelers

★★½☆ – (2016) – Strip club patrons infected by a black ooze make serious trouble for strippers and their companions. Though nothing entirely unique occurs, this does provide ample nudity, ample violence, and ample fun. Colorful characters and some genuine humor render this an imperfectly good time.
