– (1986) – An engaged couple spends the night in a creepy manor with their creepier relatives. The humor was outdated then, and is absolutely ancient now. Never funny, and never provides a reason to care about the outcome of any singular character or event. It’s short, though.
– (2016) – A vampire in a shiny leather coat aims to stop her kind from fighting werewolves in shiny leather coats. Yet another preposterous, pompous, and pretentious entry in a never-ending series that continues to take itself too seriously despite a severe lack of originality. Bloated CGI mumbo jumbo for an audience that couldn’t possible be asking for more entries.
– (2014) – A big-hearted country girl returns home to find unexpected strangeness… notably a werewolf. The lead actress pulls off cutesy naivety as long as she can before the cute turns sour. Works best when not knowing what’s going on, since the explanations are cold and empty. Feels like an audition reel gone awry.
– (2014) – A film crew documents the lives of ancient vampires as they cope with the modern world. Brilliantly exploits every notion of the undead (and reality shows) in laugh-out-loud fashion. Focuses on a variety of observational jokes that destroy the pompous seriousness of the genres in question. One of a kind.
