– (2013) – Movie theater employees plan a horror marathon while a guy who lives in the stockroom picks them off. Doesn’t make much sense, and the plot is all over the place, but there are a few genuine laughs throughout. The cheese won’t be for everyone, but at only 65-minutes you might not suffer long.
– (2013) – A group of friends venture into a house where recent murders transpired, only to find doing so isn’t the brightest of ideas. Has some genuinely funny camaraderie among the leads, though their jokes gradually give way to perpetual yelling. The intro is too abrupt, and the finale mimics The Blair Witch Project, but this hits the right marks and provides fun.
– (2016) – A young man who drinks the blood of his victims has a hard time maintaining a new friendship. Enjoyable for its quiet take on vampires, but feels a but too much like a film it mentions, Let the Right One In. This is also slow enough to add weight to your eyelids, but still serves as middle-tier entertainment.
– (2014) – A couple that manipulates themselves travel around to financially deceive others, yet their plans always end up in violence. Not easy to explain, which is great since it’s also difficult to know what will happen from one scene to the next. Pulls you along with a firm, psychotic grasp from startling start to disturbing finish.
– (2015) – A young woman with parental issues doles out her aggressions on the innocent. Has a calm tone throughout that works well at first, but ultimately leads to tedium. By the time the horror kicks in (rather confusingly), it’s hard to worry about any outcomes since no one becomes known during the slow processes.
– (2010) – A woman who longs for a specific home goes through extreme measures to clear out its occupants. The story is decent enough to carry the viewer from beginning to end, but the selling point by far is the violence. Some of the murders are among the most creative and hard to watch in the history of the slasher. Brutal enjoyment that should be watched on an empty stomach.
– (2012) – A kid harbors the secret that his older brother is a serial killer, further complicating their already dysfunctional lives. The story is okay in the early stages when characters and their horror fandom are on display, but this doesn’t take long to crawl into sheer dullness. The production is cheap, the acting is barely average, and there are too many actor close-ups. The final shot, however, is a good one.
