Ghost of Camp Blood

★½☆☆ – (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.

Inside (2016)

★½☆☆ – (2016) – A pregnant woman is stalked by a mysterious female who kills anyone in the way of her obtaining a baby. The first two thirds follow the basic pattern of the (vastly superior) original, while the new conclusion in nothing short of a travesty. Badly acted throughout, but the biggest crime is losing every single trace of the first film’s point by relying on a safe outcome. A waste.

Anna and the Apocalypse

★★☆☆ – (2018) – A zombie outbreak forces high school students to face the trials and tribulations of a vicious world. Begins as an ambitious musical with a few catchy tunes, but gradually forgets to include songs and focuses too much on common zombie tropes and a useless human villain subplot. Hits a few high notes, but ends flat despite emotional strives.

Glass

★½☆☆ – (2019) – Three men with comic book character traits sort out their good vs. evil issues in an asylum. The attempt to combine Unbreakable with Split never gels because in any remotely realistic situation these men would never be allowed to co-exist in close proximity. Couple that with the worst security in film history and we’re left with a dim story that moves too slow and ends without bestowing a single emotional trait.

Hell Fest

★★☆☆ – (2018) – A group of friends attend a festival of fabricated frights, only to find someone authentically stalking them. The premise has the makings of a decent slasher, but the output is too irritating and dopey to hold in higher regard. Gets dimmer as it goes and becomes too predictable to offer any true frights.
