– (2009) – A priest who contracts a disease is transfused with vampire blood and further complicates the life of a sad housewife. A strange blend of unique and played out ideas that manages to hold attention through 134-minutes. Tonal shifts are a problem, as one moment is deadly serious while the next is overly comical, which hurts the overall emotional impact.
– (1999) – Death row guards face the usual trials and tribulations of their jobs, and a human miracle in an accused murderer. A lot of plot and characters are covered nearly word for word from the book, but the point feels underdeveloped. The finale is emotional, but getting there isn’t always as effective. Steady and unusual.
– (1980) – The well-to-do are invited to a mansion where a comatose patient with telekinesis abides. The titular subject is hardly seen until the end, which is fine since the movie is better when he’s off screen. Most of this consists of sleazy, violent, and vulgar events that fall upon unessential (but easy on the eyes) characters.
