– (1957) – A brain from outer space attempts world domination by possessing a scientist. Dumb as a stone from the onset, and crawls through one drab progression after another. Always ridiculous, but never in a truly fun way since there are more yawns provided than laughs.
– (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.
– (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.
– (1985) – Shipwreck survivors happen upon an island where they’re attacked by doll-like creatures. Follows a droll pattern of watching characters wander before they’re assaulted, but a few dumb events and dumber lines of dialog help maintain attention. Repetitive, to say the least, but does amuse in spots of foolishness.
– (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.
– (2018) – A few friends try to stop an old woman from killing children on Halloween. The horror aspects pretty much stink, since the whole idea is nothing new, and the lack of any police activity is simply preposterous. However, the first forty minutes are filled with genuine moments of humor, so not all time is wasted.
– (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.
– (2018) – When lost in the jungle, a group of tourists take shelter in a temple where Nazi experiments are held. Has horror moments that pit various zombies against stereotypical characters, and they’re never afraid to spill blood. The main downside is the pace, as too many inactive spots linger and repetition arises near the end.
– (2018) – Three scantily clad chicks and Santa Claus battle Krampus on Christmas Eve. While this is zany and fast moving enough to warrant a decent time, it’s not nearly funny as it wants to be. Piles on a ton of jokes and plot scenarios, but by the end is merely a serviceable comedy with unmet aspirations.
– (2018) – College students renovating a remote sorority house encounter a leprechaun who was killed nearby 25 years prior. Though some humor works, and the brushes with darkness are sometimes commendable, too much of this is silly and rather annoying. Mostly drab and unoriginal, but occasionally does something noteworthy.
