– (2016) – An average guy starts dating a horror movie actress who happens to be a werewolf. Has some decent moments when dealing with the love story, but the rest of the plot is muddled and illogical. Drags to the point of inciting rage, but does manage some genuine humor.
– (2016) – A troubled woman learns her role in monster attacks that are befalling Seoul. A unique and refreshing spin on giant creature movies, complete with highly involving characters and a plethora of surprises. Some of the dramatics are on the stiff side, but when all is said and done there’s nothing quite like this, which is a great thing.
– (2017) – A mute woman falls for a creature the government is holding captive as a means to win the space race. Certainly unusual, and does a great job creating sympathy for the central characters. For every moment of wonder, however, there are those of silliness and predictability. A B-movie with art house sensibilities.
– (1973) – A man with the power to extract souls from the living and put them in the dead helps resurrect someone’s wife. Though the premise is far from ordinary (unless you’ve seen The Asphyx) the handling of some serious conditions too often come across as hammy. A breeze to watch, but does succumb to silliness and repetition.
– (2017) – A high school student discovers a book that summons the death of anyone whose name is written in it, resulting in the convolutions of betrayal. Has the basic premise of the original, but lacks in areas of style, humor, and creativity. The gore is fine, but investing in the characters is something that never arises.
– (2017) – A boy who has strange dreams escapes disguised creatures from another dimension by slipping into their dimension. Yes, there’s a gunslinger, and yes, there’s a man in black, but not much else is reminiscent of the novels. Very few (if any) characters or situations are explained, rendering this a confusing mess.
