– (2017) – A married couple moves into a house with a demonic secret, and quickly fall victim to its quirky designs. Gets off to a hilarious start, which sets the stage for the kooky shenanigans that follow. Won’t win over anyone who wants logic with their characters, but they do provide an awful lot of fun.
– (2017) – A high school student discovers a book that summons the death of anyone whose name is written in it, resulting in the convolutions of betrayal. Has the basic premise of the original, but lacks in areas of style, humor, and creativity. The gore is fine, but investing in the characters is something that never arises.
– (2016) – Paranormal experts investigate the possession of a child and the ghostly mayhem in her London home. Begins in a location promised in the previous film’s conclusion, and proceeds with events that not only keep pace with the freakishness of the original, but invents new scenarios as well. A surprisingly dramatic spookshow that’s loaded with tension.
– (1989) – Anthology of two stories that focus on a serial killer and a suicidal clown. The stories themselves are okay in that they strive for horror, but the overlong wraparounds spend too much time with a cheap production and pretentious demonic warbling. Has enough creepy merit to ensure one easy viewing.
