Night Swim

★☆☆☆ – (2024) – An injured baseball player moves his family into a house whose pool harbors an evil secret. It’s hard to say which is worse, the morose characters, the languid attempts at horror, or the by-the-books investigation into a weak mystery. An insanely dull and humorless venture that pits a force we know nothing about against characters we care nothing about.

Undying Love

★★☆☆ – (1991) – A suicidal misanthrope hooks up with a vampire who grants him eternal life. If you’ve seen any other vampire movie you’ll know what to expect from this one. Does absolutely nothing new, but does it rather competently despite the meager budget. Takes itself a bit too seriously, but some unintended humor and a quick pace help cast aside some of the negatives.

Shock-O-Rama

★★½☆ – (2005) – Anthology of three stories that focus on a junkyard alien, a bathtub zombie, and a giant brain that explores dreams. While the final tale tends to drag, the first two are chock full o’ stuff great B-movies are made of; notably the high abundance of nudity and cheese. The first two stories are zany, fast moving, and surprisingly funny. In all, an imperfectly fun time.

The Unknown

★★☆☆ – (1927) – A man who fakes not having arms goes great lengths to win over a woman who’s in love with someone else. By and large a love triangle/drama that only veers toward horror in the final half. Takes some sadistic turns, but wimps out in the end by not going far enough with the antagonist’s plan. Having a happy conclusion is fine, but this story begs for a bleaker outcome.

The Mystic

★★☆☆ – (1925) – A conman coaxes Hungarian gypsies into performing fake seances to swindle money from the wealthy. The first third is pretty decent when remaining true to its premise, but after a while the faux medium gimmick is abandoned and bickering characters take over. Begins with involvement, but gradually descends into standard conflict.
