– (1989) – A woman who’s haunted by a spirit enlists the help of a professor who never got over the death of his wife. Has a slow building mystery that takes a while to become invested in, but the rather grim payoff is worth the wait. Has some goofiness amid the creepiness, but succeeds in telling a ghost story that isn’t always predictable.

– (2021) – Anthology of five stories that focus on a sewer monster, a funeral parlor corpse, human/metal experiments, vigilante extremists, and a wraparound regarding a VHS cult. No story is fully engaging from start to finish, but most have at least a few shocking moments that aren’t easy to shake. The violence and gore far outweigh any plot points, and remain the sole purpose for viewing, but this somehow remains steadily enjoyable.

– (2021) – A group of female friends gather in a remote location to take down a notorious serial killer. Has very few ideas to call its own, as even the dispensable feminist agenda has already grown stale. Good for a few moments of bloodshed, but bad for most everything else, most notably the rampant overacting and preachy dialog.

– (2020) – A widow gradually uncovers her husband’s secret life while experiencing visions of ghosts. Not the easiest to describe, and the lead isn’t the easiest to like, but this does get under your skin the more we learn about the deceased. Becomes a bit too convoluted by the end, but has plenty of effective moments throughout and is easy to recommend.

– (2021) – A small family relocates to the house of a deceased relative only to discover the estate’s ties to busting ghosts. Fun early on, but the precocious kids get annoying fast and there’s never a sense of purpose to any occurrence throughout. Most every line of dialog feels forced for comedic effect, while the story only serves to remind of the previous films. A vibrant, fast moving waste of resources.

– (2010) – Outcasts torture popular kids during a Halloween party. A sadistic idea that dark minds might actually conjure in their bleakest moments, but the fantasy is carried out by so-called victims whom are actually jerks. Takes itself too seriously to frighten, as plenty of this sort have come before.

– (2005) – College students research a rash of killings caused by winged enemies. Some of the party atmosphere near the beginning suggests a better time, but this tends to bore with repetitive actions and banter. The cast isn’t bad, but there isn’t anything purposeful for them to do.

– (2010) – Two hillbillies are mistaken for murderers by college kids who accidentally die in their presence. Takes full advantage of its quirky premise, but reaches heights of humor in the first half that the second can’t compete with. Always unique and enjoyable, but chokes on its own exhaust toward the end.

– (2007) – River tour patrons in Australia run into a massive, territorial crocodile. Slow from the start and never finds a much-needed pace. Most of what’s here has been covered to death in similar affairs.

– (2011) – A band of deadbeats take on waves of undead Cubans. Borrows the tone and some themes from Shaun, but does enough on its own to certify legitimate merit. The finale is questionable, but getting there is fueled by fun characters and loads of humor.

– (2019) – A girl is abducted by an affluent family that has ties to a voodoo curse. Pretty pitiful out of the gate, and worsens the more the story is explained. There’s simply too much corn in every character and plot point, and far too many close-ups of irritating actors.

– (1982) – A suburban family loses their youngest daughter to the angry forces within their haunted house. Steadily introduces characters and ghostly happenings while never failing to pile on one nerve wracking moment after another. One of the most emotional and fascinating films in horror history.

– (1991) – Toxie and his mutant crusaders protect Tromaville from a villain who wants to pollute everyone and everything. Feels more like three cartoon episodes strung together. The self aware humor works, but all else is pretty cruddy.
