Hellhole

Hellhole

★★☆☆ – (1985) – A woman who’s nearly killed is put in an insane asylum with a secret torture dungeon. The premise isn’t exactly standard, which helps things along, but the characters and their situations mean nothing. Women are frequently naked, which does help keep eyes open.

The Green Inferno

Green Inferno, The

★½☆☆ – (2013) – Naive college students protesting a jungle development crash land in hostile territory. Hard to believe a director who waited two years to exploit the torture genre with Hostel would wait thrity to a exploit a genre that was best left to infamy. A polished version of movies you simply can’t duplicate.

Kill List

Kill List

★★☆☆ – (2011) – A hitman and his partner are hired to take down three targets with dark ties to one another. Begins as a sub-par mob drama before going absolutely insane in the final act. Not without suspense, but it’s too bad A Serbian Film already pulled off a similar shock ending.

Death Weekend

Death Weekend

★½☆☆ – (1976) – A couple of friends are assaulted by four men who lose to them in a bout of road rage. After a slightly impressive opening car chase, the story drifts into the realm of boredom and doesn’t let up until the vengeful conclusion. Obnoxious when not dead quiet, and every character blows.

The Human Centipede III (Final Sequence)

Human Centipede III

★½☆☆ – (2015) – The scumbag character who made Human Centipede II based on his enjoyment of Human Centipede I uses a prison to continue his exploits. Does little but provide irritation from the perpetually screaming warden and his forced sexism/racism. Adds nothing new aside from the extension of centipede length, yet nobody within the link means squat.

The ABCs of Death 2

ABCs of Death 2, The

★★½☆ – (2014) – Anthology of 26 stories based on each letter of the English alphabet. An improvement over the original, as even the silly segments are handled with some care. “W” is especially disturbing, but many episodes are unique and satisfying in their own way. An overall success.
