– (2019) – A family relocates to a town near ancient grounds that can return life to the deceased. Seems to have been created for the sole purpose of playing against the original film, but in doing so creates unpredictability in characters and their grim plights. Sometimes uneven, but more often that not will shred nerves and provoke emotions.
– (1988) – A group of friends vacate to a haunted locale where they’re picked off by an ancient demon. Has the makings of a decent 80’s slasher, from bantering friends to a couple of okay murders. The main problem rests with the pace, as long stretches transpire where nothing seems to happen. Has some campy moments and a great nude scene, for what it’s worth.
– (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.
– (1983) – Two aliens grown from pods either befriend a boy or murder locals. A strange blend of a children’s movie and horror tale that’s pretty creepy one moment and blatantly absurd the next. A bit too slow in spots, but most always offers an amusement and does have a depressing outcome.
– (1985) – Shipwreck survivors happen upon an island where they’re attacked by doll-like creatures. Follows a droll pattern of watching characters wander before they’re assaulted, but a few dumb events and dumber lines of dialog help maintain attention. Repetitive, to say the least, but does amuse in spots of foolishness.
– (2018) – The spirit of a dead serial killer possesses a paranormal investigator. Has the gall to believe anyone is longing for more Camp Blood movies, and has even more of a nerve by expecting anyone to want this cruddy series to continue. There’s simply nothing new here, and it’s all stunningly cheap, horribly acted, and misses the mark in providing any fun.
– (2017) – A group of friends and a hiker tread upon a camp (someone’s backyard) where a killer is lurking. A paint-by-numbers no-budget effort that’s been seen a thousand times before and will be seen a thousand times again. Only runs an hour, and does have a few unintentionally funny moments.
– (2014) – Students enter the domain of a notorious killer only to become the target of another murderer. Has moments that resemble an actual movie, but most of this is shoddily constructed. The F/X are particularly bad, but at the very least a credible body count is attempted.
– (2018) – A group of strangers try to outlast an apparition that causes suicide when seen. The premise is neat, but the execution is filled with stale dialog, ordinary characters, and some astonishingly corny advancements. The structure gives away who survives, which only ruins any chance this had at building suspense.
