Up from the Depths

★★☆☆ – (1979) – A monstrous fish is on the prowl near a vacation resort, to the dismay of the resort’s owner. Best when moving fast and showing camaraderie among colorful characters, but too many slow areas bog down the fun. Gloriously goofy at times, with some okay gore and decent female eye candy.

Yeti

★½☆☆ – (2008) – A football team crash lands in the Himalayas and are picked off by a Sasquatch. Takes the key components of Alive, and throws in a ridiculous looking monster to further disrupt the lives of atrocious brats. Has a few awful/fun moments, but most are just plain awful.

Stung

★★☆☆ – (2015) – Big wasps become bigger wasps when they bore into humans and tear their way out. A small scale outing that mainly features a few characters trying to outlast a monster invasion from within a mansion. The cutesy banter between the leads is as familiar as the mayhem around them, but some jokes work and the pace is brisk.

Destroyer

★★☆☆ – (1988) – A movie is shot in a prison where someone once allegedly escaped their own electric chair execution. Has some enjoyable moments early on when making light of the premise, but it’s never clear exactly what’s going on or who it’s happening to. An Elm Street/Return to Horror High combo that fails in creating a threatening villain.
