Honeymoon (2014)

★★★☆ – (2014) – Newlyweds vacationing in secluded woods run into trouble when the wife begins acting irrationally after strange marks appear on her body. Starts off a tad too cutesy, but gradually builds into something where anything cute has no place. A strange, gripping tale with unusual and tense advancements.

It Comes at Night

★★★☆ – (2017) – Two small parties try to outlast a deadly virus and, ultimately, each other. A subdued affair that builds on dread despite not having many inclusions of the infected. Has strong character moments, scenes of high intensity, and ends on a powerfully haunting note.

Timecrimes

★★½☆ – (2007) – A man inadvertently travels back in time to avoid a killer, and gradually learns the dark ramifications of repeating the past. Has a unique premise that takes plenty of unexpected turns, although some events can feel muddled. Has moments that question logic, but is moderately gripping overall.

Amityville: No Escape

★½☆☆ – (2016) – A small group of friends film themselves as they talk about fear near an infamous haunted house. Doesn’t seem to know what it wants to do, as it’s never clear why the characters search for a house they never enter (until the lame finale). One half is a POV confessional of an irritating actress, the other half is a blatant Blair Witch ripoff. Both try patience.

Camp Blood 4

★☆☆☆ – (2016) – A group of friends visit the site of past murders and are stalked by a killer in a clown mask. How bad is this? Let’s count the ways. 1. There are too many stagnant shots of random things. 2. The acting stinks. 3. The story and its flashbacks make no sense. 4. Has an open ending as though anyone would want this garbage to continue.
