Shallow Grave (1987)

★★☆☆ – (1987) – Four girls on their way to Florida for spring break become prey to a man who’s caught killing his mistress. Has a fun start that displays plenty of activity in character interactions and their initial scenarios. Screeches to a halt after a brisk first third, and goes through familiar advancements at a sluggish rate.

Truth or Dare

★☆☆☆ – (2018) – A group of college friends play a harmless game that ultimately leads to demonic mischief.  A silly and bland blend of It Follows and Final Destination that never amounts to much in drama, characters, or horror.  The smirking gets old fast and, like the rest of the movie, can’t go away soon enough.

Killer Holiday

Killer Holiday

★½☆☆ – (2013) – A group of friends on Spring Break fall victim to a murderer in an abandoned amusement park. Shows promise early on when setting up the characters and premise, but even those areas are stale. The horror is eventually rendered pitiful by twists that don’t come close to raising alarm.
