– (2021) – A doll collector who’s mistreated by society acquires a toy that murders her oppressors. An amusing character study of a woman pushed to the brink and who revels in the bloody destruction of others, while Baby Oopsie herself is pretty humorous in her actions and dialog. Grows a bit tiresome toward the end of its short length, but still has enough merit to recommend to B-movie buffs.

– (2021) – A young woman who’s attending a fashion school in modern London experiences the past life of an aspiring musical performer in her visions. An absorbing mystery of murder and deceit among well-placed throwback music and surreal editing. A journey of insanity that leads to unexpected turns and a handful of tense moments, and though we root for the protagonist throughout, emotional attachments to her are never fully realized. Despite minor flaws, this is a unique gem.

– (2021) – A viral outbreak in a small town turns citizens into victims, zombies, and/or monsters. Plays as a live action version the the Resident Evil 2 video game, which is commendable considering how the previous series had little to do with the games. However, by watching without a controller in hand the events get awfully dull awfully fast. Goes through familiar motions without offering anything fresh to a beaten genre.

– (2022) – Someone is picking off the citizens of Woodsboro in reaction to the Stab franchise. A blend of past and present characters who endure the same old deadly situation; an unknown killer in a white mask is stabbing people. Revisiting the original actors is nice, but the new faces lack significance and by the end are just another factor in yet another retread of the inaugural Scream.

– (2021) – Vacationers on an isolated beach start aging rapidly while continuing to argue about their less severe issues. Though the concept is mildly intriguing, the execution is nearly crippled by lousy acting and a pitiful script. Not enough is done with the premise, since only a few characters show physical traits of aging. Only worsens when trying to explain its own meaning, and eventually feels endless.

– (2014) – A small group of friends travel to a small island that has a big virus problem. Takes a scientific approach to the illness of the previous entries, but adds nothing new to the paranoid reaction to the disease. Has some great grotesque moments, but lacks dramatic significance.

– (1990) – Anthology of four stories (including the wraparound) that focus on a cannibal, a mummy, a cat, and a gargoyle. Slow and uninspired, but has some okay horror moments and a good cast. On par with the equally okay TV series, and has a few moments worth remembering.

– (1995) – A werewolf mistaken for a mountain lion occasionally kills someone in the hillbilly capital of America. Hard to say which is worse, that such a simple plot is over explained, that the highlights are clips from previous entries, or that an actual werewolf doesn’t appear until the final 30-seconds. Shockingly bad in all avenues (even without the line dancing).

– (1980) – A flushed gator that’s been feeding on experimental dogs in a city sewer grows large and attacks humans. Has more drama than horror, but there are enough cheap thrills and worthwhile moments to hold attention throughout.

– (2018) – When lost in the jungle, a group of tourists take shelter in a temple where Nazi experiments are held. Has horror moments that pit various zombies against stereotypical characters, and they’re never afraid to spill blood. The main downside is the pace, as too many inactive spots linger and repetition arises near the end.

– (1987) – Anthology of four stories that focus on a lonely murderer, a greedy thief, carnival lust, and young Civil War survivors. While none of the tales make much sense, each has its own creepy vibe and some violent moments that are hard to shake. A dark, atmospheric, and bloody good time that ends with a truly humorous line.

– (2013) – Anthology of three stories that focus on captive women, an alien invader, and a driver terrorized by a clown. The Halloween wraparounds are absorbing, but the stories themselves repel the overall enjoyment. Holds attention, but is rather chintzy and never instills fear.

– (2005) – College kids are forced to explore the realm of an infamous, murderous gold miner. Does a fair enough job setting up a notorious killer and his newest victims, but the action is slow and the murders bloodless. The mine atmosphere isn’t bad, but there’s too much quietness going on.
