Nightmare Cinema

★★☆☆ – (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.

Tammy and the T-Rex

★★½☆ – (1994) – A young man who’s mauled by a lion has his brain implanted into a mechanical dinosaur. As preposterous as the plot sounds, this actually sort of works because it knows exactly how stupid it is. Moves fast and blends eye-rolling comedy with some genuinely humorous moments. Sounds like a children’s movie, but is far more risque.

Dead Squad: Temple of the Undead

★★½☆ – (2018) – When lost in the jungle, a group of tourists take shelter in a temple where Nazi experiments are held. Has horror moments that pit various zombies against stereotypical characters, and they’re never afraid to spill blood. The main downside is the pace, as too many inactive spots linger and repetition arises near the end.

Frankenweenie

★★☆☆ – (2012) – A young scientist brings his dog back to life, sparking an influx of resurrection mayhem. Has a whimsical and emotional beginning, but gradually piles on too many subplots that distract from the heart of the story. Innovative and busy, but lacks focus which ultimately harms the sentimental depths.

Livid

★★☆☆ – (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.
