– (2015) – A lumbering immortal makes trouble for gangsters who disrupt his meaningless days. While the point isn’t entirely clear, and some motives are questionable, this is always fun and worth following. Mainly gets by on great humor, witty dialog, and a terrific performance by Henry Rollins.
– (2017) – A young woman inadvertently summons a pissed off ghost and wades through one haunting after another. While this does have solid attempts at horror, none ever take hold since they’re always visions without consequences. Worst of all is the rampant stupidity, as characters seem to beg to be put in harm’s way.
– (1978) – A magical author and a vampire manipulate the minds and necks of women. A second version of Lucifer’s Women that adds new scenes of horror hokum and in turn loses the smutty highlights of the initial version. Still doesn’t make much sense, but has enough going on to not consider a complete failure.
– (2018) – A detective investigating a serial killer gets tied up with the judgmental forces of Hell. An ugly production that at first piles on a ton of gore only to abandon such elements for common cop fodder. Seems to head nowhere, but the final act does have a few unexpected turns. Not great, but not nearly as bad as some other entries.
