– (1971) – A small family becomes stranded in a small town that has a large satanism issue. The initial mystery of missing children is rock solid, and the direction is in high style, but the pace drags to the point where this becomes a chore. Good in spots, but too droll overall.
– (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.
– (2015) – A large man who carts around large pancakes is picking off teens from a church retreat. There’s virtually no plot, and most everything from a slasher sense has been seen before, but this doesn’t take itself seriously and has a ton of momentum, which helps it stand out from the pack. Provides plenty and boobs and blood, and has a particularly creative kill when someone is halved.
– (2016) – Two BFF clerks take on mini-Nazi bratwursts that eventually control a goalie golem. The leads are vibrant enough to carry the watch, but the plot around them gets a bit too awkward. The humor works on occasion, though the horror inclusions are too purposefully twisted to have any sort of cinematic impact.
– (2017) – Victims of a tape that kills them a week after their initial viewing pass on the curse to others for survival, until the tape changes. Although there is a new spin put forth with the strange new images and mystery behind them, this can’t hold a candle to the original’s similar quest. Not the easiest to follow, mainly due to the flat characters and a flatter pace.
