Jackals

★½☆☆ – (2017) – A family steals their brainwashed son from a cult, but the cult desperately wants him back. Never proves the family is close enough that saving one of their own should be such a high priority, as nobody seems to like one another. The whole scenario is a lose-lose situation that turns out exactly as expected.

Peelers

★★½☆ – (2016) – Strip club patrons infected by a black ooze make serious trouble for strippers and their companions. Though nothing entirely unique occurs, this does provide ample nudity, ample violence, and ample fun. Colorful characters and some genuine humor render this an imperfectly good time.

Dying God

★★½☆ – (2008)- Something is raping women in the most vicious of ways, but a drunk cop and gangsters intend to stop it. The horror aspect doesn’t do anything not already seen in The Incubus, but enough occurs that this can’t be considered a complete rip-off. Has gruesome moments, one of which goes way too far, and despite the cheap production has some surprising and funny areas.

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.

Night Feeder

★★½☆ – (1988) – Someone or something is sucking out human brains through eye sockets, and a rock band is taking the blame. A so-so mystery that shows unusually high forms of narrative for a film with no budget. The characters are somewhat fleshed out, while the horror leads to an outlandish conclusion. Cheap fun.
