All Hallows’ Eve 2

★☆☆☆ – (2015) – Anthology of eight stories that focus on pumpkin seeds, doomsday, a meat sacrifice, a wrongful death, a carnival game, a frightened kid, a chubby murderer, and an online ghost. Very few stories have any Halloween atmosphere, and most every tale has no direction or purpose. Woefully acted, nonsensical, and horribly constructed.

Bigfoot (2012)

★½☆☆ – (2012) – A small, South Dakota town is plagued with rampages from a giant beast. Begins by focusing on an ’80s rock revival concert amid environmental concerns, but that aspect ends early and sheer boredom takes over. Basically a construction of a lousy looking monster running from scene to scene without having anyone worthwhile to feast upon. Repetitive, dull, and cheap.

The Hollow (2015)

Hollow (2015), The

★★☆☆ – (2015) – A creature of roots and embers attacks three screaming sisters in its wooded domain. Common and drab from a story perspective, but skirts by on some good atmosphere and unintentional hilarity. Needn’t take 112-minutes for such thin material, but most of the padding is the fault of actresses who slowly speak ev-ery syl-la-ble.

Victor Frankenstein

★½☆☆ – (2015) – A circus freak and an eccentric scientist try to create life after death. Attempts to build intrigue with a murder investigation atop scientific activity, but neither aspect means much since the characters are wholly unlikable. Has few moments of working drama, fewer moments of amusing comedy, and even fewer moments of actual horror.
