Holidays

★★½☆ – (2016) – Anthology of six stories that focus on a bullied teen, an evil spawn, a resurrected creature, fertility rituals, a family search, female revenge, a virtual reality device, and dual murderers, all taking place on separate holidays. Though there are brushes with amateurism and silliness, there are also moments of shock and tension. Nothing stands out as a classic, as even the best tales have lackluster outcomes, but this is enjoyable straight through.

Terror Train

★★☆☆ – (1980) – College students on a train are terrorized by someone who hides behind many disguises. Okay in the party stages, which are distracted by overlong magic scenes, but hits too many dramatic lags throughout. Somewhat tense in the final moments, and the villain’s twists are a bit creepy.
