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.

Dorm of the Dead (2012)

★☆☆☆ – (2012) – A bunch of college geeks deal with zombies by referring to popular movies. There’s hardly any story pertaining to the dead versus the living, aside from a few wide shots of zombie groups. A dirt cheap version of something that could have been made for even cheaper and still accomplish the same nothingness.

The Hazing

Hazing, The

★★☆☆ – (2014) – Sorority pledges on a scavenger hunt discover a book that summons an evil professor. A scattershot mess that has so much going on something is bound to work. The success lies in ambition over actual product since there’s nothing concrete enough to consider important.
