Hellbound

★★☆☆ – (1994) – A cop and his obnoxious partner track an agent of Satan in Israel. Fueled by corn from start to finish, but not in a way that’s overly humorous. The jokes are rather dumb and the action is rather drab, but what’s worse is how stagnant the plot is and how little horror is represented.

Tammy and the T-Rex

★★½☆ – (1994) – A young man who’s mauled by a lion has his brain implanted into a mechanical dinosaur. As preposterous as the plot sounds, this actually sort of works because it knows exactly how stupid it is. Moves fast and blends eye-rolling comedy with some genuinely humorous moments. Sounds like a children’s movie, but is far more risque.

Raptor

★★☆☆ – (2001) – A cop and a wildlife officer investigate murders that lead to a carnosaur creation facility. The plot is nothing new, and most every line spoken is an exercise in stupidity, but the pace is quick and the corn levels high. The monster mayhem is by far the highlight, but there’s not nearly enough of those moments.

Anna and the Apocalypse

★★☆☆ – (2018) – A zombie outbreak forces high school students to face the trials and tribulations of a vicious world. Begins as an ambitious musical with a few catchy tunes, but gradually forgets to include songs and focuses too much on common zombie tropes and a useless human villain subplot. Hits a few high notes, but ends flat despite emotional strives.
