– (2017) – A group of young girls move into an orphanage that contains an aggravated spirit. Goes great lengths in attempting to create frights, but they’re either too familiar or too loud. The characters begin with promise but, like everything else here, they succumb to the ordinary.
– (2015) – A man who hears voices attempts to kill the daughter of an artist who’s hearing the same voices. Has a relatively strong family dynamic, and a frustratingly cruel villain, but too much happens too fast to become emotional attached to either. Gets under your skin at times, but misses the mark in others.
– (2016) – A group of friends on a Spring Break vacation encounter a killer who spreads his murderous plague. The characters are pure stock, but the horror does try to make up for such shortcomings. Within the first half hour is necrophilia, rape, scat, tampon eating, urine drinking, and vomiting. If that sounds like fun, climb on board, if not, run from this as fast as you can.
– (2017) – A black man and his white girlfriend visit her home where sadistic events involving hypnotism transpire. Incredibly unique and unnerving during the first two thirds, with the proper blends of tension and humor. Comes close to falling apart in the muddled final act, but the theme of oppression is never lost.
– (2016) – A fortune teller/con artist brings home a Ouija board that summons her husband’s spirit and possesses her youngest daughter. Piled high with moments too often seen, and has characters who don’t look or feel as though they belong to the same family. Corny at best, as timeworn events are taken too seriously.
