Terror Toons

★☆☆☆ – (2002) – A small party is invaded by diabolical puppets of Satan. Strives for a campy edge by staging itself as a live action cartoon, but nothing is remotely funny nor engaging on any level. Characters are types, while the obnoxious villains wear out nerves in a hurry.

Little Red Riding Hood and the Monsters

★½☆☆ – (1962) – A young girl and a skunk intend to save a wolf and an ogre from certain death. Perhaps the most traumatic children’s movie in creation, as dark creepiness, uncomfortable progressions, and nods to Satan aren’t uncommon. An absurd curiosity that’s hard to believe exists, but any joy experienced by such a travesty is ruined by repetition, aggravation, and irritation.

Hellbound

★★☆☆ – (1994) – A cop and his obnoxious partner track an agent of Satan in Israel. Fueled by corn from start to finish, but not in a way that’s overly humorous. The jokes are rather dumb and the action is rather drab, but what’s worse is how stagnant the plot is and how little horror is represented.

The Devil’s Carnival: Alleluia!

★★☆☆ – (2016) – God, the devil, and their acquaintances sing through the plight of putting dark souls in Heaven. Not nearly as painful as the dull original, as this one shows signs of life. The plot tends to confuse, and the songs are repetitive, but there is progression and solid production values.

The Brotherhood of Satan

★★☆☆ – (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.

Satan War

Satan War

★☆☆☆ -(1979) – A married couple moves into a house that inverts crosses and spews gook. Begins with an overlong satanic ritual that paves the way for the sheer boredom that follows. There’s hardly any dialog, barely any movement, and not one inkling of suspense. For some reason ends with a voodoo ritual.

The Rite

Rite, The

★½☆☆ – (2011) – An aspiring priest who’s skeptical of God assists in an exorcism that goes wrong. The lead’s plight doesn’t make sense, and only serves as an excuse to have him change in the end. Wrought with over dramatic scenarios already seen in a slew of Exorcist rip-offs.
