– (2014) – A geek is pranked and humiliated, then exacts revenge on his wrongdoers. Nothing about the plot hasn’t been done a million times before, but this one gets by on its absurd sense of humor. Sloppy, but only 55-minutes and easy to sit through.
– (1967) – Anthology of four stories that focus on a vengeful cat, a secret film society, an active piano, and Edgar Allan Poe. Each segment is unpredictable and uneasy to figure out, which is a plus, but they also move at a crawl. Utilizes some good ideas and some great actors, but is hardly ever shocking.
– (2017) – A down on her luck woman ends up working in a strip club that employs the most despicable humans known to man. Doesn’t accomplish anything new, but does have a basic core that’s easy to watch thanks to bitchy characters and a seedy setting. The acting borders on travesty at times, but does add to the low grade charm that permeates throughout.
– (2015) – Anthology of eight stories that focus on pumpkin seeds, doomsday, a meat sacrifice, a wrongful death, a carnival game, a frightened kid, a chubby murderer, and an online ghost. Very few stories have any Halloween atmosphere, and most every tale has no direction or purpose. Woefully acted, nonsensical, and horribly constructed.
– (1991) – The ghost of a dead man uses his daughter to locate his killer, but has to succeed before his corpse completely rots. The overall story is okay, and the attempts at the surreal aren’t awful, but there’s never a sense of dread or concern for the outcome. Pretty tame for a Fulci movie, but still pulls off some nasty tricks.
– (1997) – A group of female vigilantes seek revenge against deplorable men, but accidentally kill a cop. The message is clear (girls have power) but the execution is hindered by the filmmaker’s lack of originality. Decent as far as low budget outings go, but this is sloppily handled, lacking in singular character developments, and too unrealistic.
