– (2019) – A meteor crashes onto the property of an isolated family, and brings with it troubles of the colorful kind. Begins by building credibility in the few characters before tossing them into some truly dire situations. Not entirely deep from an emotional perspective, but gets by on unpredictability and dark surrealism.

– (2019) – A group of friends reunite 27 years after battling an evil force that feeds on fears. Does a good job showcasing an assortment of unique F/X sequences, but the human element is too shallow. The kids have become types, and by focusing too much on their past the reasons to save their hometown in the present is lost. Entirely too long, and could have used less false scares against characters we already know survive their childhoods.

– (2019) – Anthology of four stories that focus on bed bugs, an antique necklace, a hermit, and a living hand. Slightly better than the previous collection as the tales here are more focused, but they’re still underwhelming and still take place in a MOTEL. Nothing stands out as great, but nothing is particularly miserable.

– (2018) – Anthology of four stories that focus on a serial killer, plastic surgery, suicide, and a murder attempt survivor. While the first tale offers a unique spin on the slasher genre, the rest feel like film school projects that offer nothing intriguing. Not a painful watch, but this is more apt to make you groan than scream.

– (2018) – Psychotic moments are exchanged in a small circle of cellists. Almost succeeds as a unique horror experience, but for every shocking moment there are several of blinding stupidity that almost render this a comedy. Would have worked better if no character spoke and the actors practiced their parts.

– (2016) – An unpopular girl who kills herself takes cyberbullying to new heights by killing those who’ve wronged her. The initial idea could have led to a chilling time, but this is ruined by a lack of frights, bad F/X, non-existent characters, and no lore in the villain. Has an unoriginal script and a rather unsightly cast.

– (2011) – Three friends break into an old woman’s house to steal her treasure, but uncover some savage secrets. Has a dark and moody tone that fits the subject matter, while some of the horror is viciously inventive. The main downside is the frustration in having no idea how or why anything related to the focal point is happening.

– (1987) – A group of people fall prey to enemies from the past in an abandoned film studio. The plot is an absolute mess, and the acting fares even worse, but there is an upside in the practical gore and spots of nudity. A good idea gone awry, but has solid horror highlights.

– (2017) – A small family moves into a notorious house only to find their invalid brother/son possessed by evil forces. Does what it can to link itself to the original film, but still isn’t any better than the slew of crap with “Amityville” in the title. There’s worse in this lame series, if you can call it a series, but this one turns anything potentially frightening into corn.

– (2017) – An ancient evil is unleashed in the form of an Egyptian woman, and it’s up to archaeologists to stop her. Gets off to a decent start with some excitement and humor, but hits the brakes halfway through, adds one subplot too many, and stops making any sense. Worsens by the minute, and continually loses focus.
