– (2015) – A girl murders the captors she once escaped only to become a victim of their associates. Whereas the original is wholly uncomfortable, this one is overwrought with dramatics. Any statement that should comes across as profound now seems silly, but there is some nervous energy at hand.
– (2006) – An electrocuted serial killer who refuses to die is buried alive, but escapes to murder his captors. On the plus side this is rather grimy and features some staged brutality, but ill advisedly begins with scenes depicting real animal torture as a lame means to get a rise from an audience. Without that inclusion this movie is bad, with it the experience is sour.
– (2016) – Five carnival workers are abducted and forced to participate in a timed game of death. Features the standard Rob Zombie atmosphere and actors, but nothing new comes of either. A blend of House of 1000 Corpses and The Running Man that supplies plenty of violence but no rationale to such areas. Feels slapped together as it’s often hard to tell what’s going on.
– (2016) – Three young thieves break into the house of a blind man, and quickly find themselves his prey. An unusual blend of Saw, Seed of Chucky, and The People Under the Stairs that turns anything suspenseful into a joke if relating to comparisons. A mass of cliches that may please genre newcomers, but nothing new is ever presented.
– (2014) – Twin boys play sadistic games with a bandaged woman who claims she’s their mother but acts nothing like her. Reaches highs in scenes that shock and disturb, but has a couple of illogical lows. Winds down on an eerie note by churning out the completely unexpected. Requires patience, but is worth the wait.
– (2015) – Two disturbed young women make life hell for a man whose house they crash. Has enough filthy and violent turns to make for an easy viewing, but too many spots, especially the conclusion, come across as silly. Does exactly what Death Game already accomplished, only with less suspense.
