Camp Blood 2

★½☆☆ – (2000) – A film crew intends to make a movie based on real camp murders, and bring along the only survivor, but find someone else picking them off. As far as zero-budget backyard sequels go, this isn’t the worst, but the story and character angles are missing. Has moments of brutality, but it’s too cheap and drab to consider a success.

Milo

★½☆☆ – (1998) – A school teacher believes she’s seeing a child who died during her youth, while everyone around her thinks she’s nuts. Does make you wonder what’s going on, but the payoff is far more silly than intriguing. Takes too many routine turns before hitting a corny dead end.

Prevenge

★½☆☆ – (2016) – A pregnant woman takes orders to kill from her unborn child. The concept is promising, but the payoffs fail since A) the lead doesn’t try to stop what’s happening and B) she kills people who don’t deserve to die. Will perhaps strike a cord with the pregnant and moody, but for the rest of us this is merely a soulless experience.

Night of Something Strange

★½☆☆ – (2016) – A group of friends on a Spring Break vacation encounter a killer who spreads his murderous plague. The characters are pure stock, but the horror does try to make up for such shortcomings. Within the first half hour is necrophilia, rape, scat, tampon eating, urine drinking, and vomiting. If that sounds like fun, climb on board, if not, run from this as fast as you can.

Lumberjack Man

★★½☆ – (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.

Violent Shit: The Movie

★☆☆☆ – (2015) – Italians are worried that a notorious German killer is using their territory as his slaughtering ground. Attempts to turn complete garbage into a respectable giallo, yet nothing of merit ever occurs to consider this a success for any region. Hard to say what’s more off-putting, the invented plot or the real nudity.
