– (2004) – A group of scientists attempt to save the world from robot-aliens. Features some of the lousiest practical and visual F/X on record, which is the only saving grace to this mess. Presents no reasons to revisit the awful original.
– (1992) – A scientist loses his arm during an experiment, only to find that arm alive and violently active. Somewhat succeeds on quirkiness and a sense of not taking matters too seriously, but when all is said and done, this never makes much of a point and seems to create weirdness for the sake of weirdness. Odd, but pretty dim.
– (2014) – A podcaster in search of a humorous story encounters one of horror. Works well when dealing with the sadistic exploits of a deranged man’s obsession with sea mammals, but is quite horrendous in every other area. The first hour is intriguing, but the remainder relies too heavily on slapdash corn.
– (1996) – A human and his robot companions are forced to watch This Island Earth by a scientist who intimidates their sanity. Anything dealing with the film itself is pretty flat, but the observations of the joyously cruddy movie-within-the-movie range from giddy to downright hysterical. Causes enough laughter to make your face hurt.
– (2008) – Two storied FBI agents reconvene to locate a missing agent. Has surprisingly little to do with the supernatural, but instead focuses on spiritual beliefs and a sinister plot involving human body parts. The story and its advancements are wholly engaging, while the wintry atmosphere is a plus.
– (1977) – A man drifts onto an island where experiments turn humans into animals. Hokey mumbo-jumbo that gradually beats to death the message of law, as though a social conscience can salvage the rampant goofiness. The F/X aren’t too bad, but their inclusions don’t do anything to stave the overall boredom.
