– (1975) – The lone survivor of a mysterious boat mishap recounts her tale to those who rescue her. Spends the first 23-minutes exploring the thought-empty vessel, and the rest of the short length going from one silly recollection to another. Only lasts 75-minutes, but thanks to a slow pace and dim advancements every second feels like an eternity.

– (2020) – A small family of trappers who live in isolation believe they’re hunted by a murderous wolf. A sluggish outing that centers on thin characters who switch between modes of whispering and screaming throughout. Gradually works itself to a conclusion that’s just as disturbing as it is corny.

– (1989) – Documentary that showcases the various forms of death, notably suicide, homicide, accidents, and other such atrocities. Consists of little more than grim narration over hundreds of crime scene photos, and though this is a colossal waste of time, it does offer an overall feeling of dread. More a test of endurance than a learning experience, but everything is authentic, unlike Faces of Death.

– (2019) – Documentary that explores the rapid rise of a gay actor and his quicker Hollywood decline. Gets off to a great start when covering the history of horror, the AIDS epidemic, and the homosexual traits of the second Elm Street film. Slows at the mid-point, and the build-up to the final meeting isn’t entirely gripping, but a lot of unknown info is shared throughout amid important observations of the horror genre.

– (2021) – A phoney psychic medium delves too deep into the past of a notorious mark and faces graphic consequences. Has a highly involving first act full of character development and intrigue, but once the carnival setting is left behind so too is involvement. Slows into a borderline bore, and while some surprisingly grim advancements do occur, the conclusion is too easily predictable to consider fulfilling.

– (2008) – A deceased young woman who’s not really dead complicates the lives of derelicts and their bullies. Though there’s a lot of confusion in the rules at hand, enough twisted and violent acts occur to mark this as a success. Would have worked much better if any single character weren’t so despicable or weak.

– (1987) – A child born of a radioactive mother can’t escape his ill-fated past. The first half is okay when dealing with bloodshed in the woods, but the second half (which takes place ten years later even though everything looks the same) is flat out dull. Initially fun, but ultimately torturous.

– (2008) – A group of friends on a hunting trip contend with hillbillies, hippies, and a massive boar. Has a lot going on, and moves fast some of the time, but the characters and their conflicts never mean squat. An eventual trial of patience that is never funny nor exciting.

– (2018) – Anthology of five stories that focus on a twisted office party, demon knights, yuletide psychosis, a vengeful reindeer, and an alternate reality. The black box theater setup is different, but the stories themselves are bland and uninspiring. Most stories have no resolution, making this feel like a collection of thrown away ideas.

– (1981) – A rash of murders leads a small town sheriff to the discovery of a twisted secret. Has a moody atmosphere (when not too dark), some inventive violence, and a plot that always holds attention. The outcome borders on silly, but the lead-up is as solid as a horror mystery can get.

– (1991) – A pregnant woman becomes the target of a voodoo curse. Has an amazingly boring first 80-minutes before ending with an out-of-the-blue creature that offers too little too late. Too talky and hard to decipher.

– (2017) – A clown terrorizes a few people on Halloween night. There’s not much of a plot, or any distinct characters, as the sole purpose is to disgust. Though the violence can be over-the-top, there are some cringeworthy moments that serve as the film’s saving grace.

– (1993) – Strippers with a vendetta against men kill as many as they can. There’s no progressive plot, as this consists of random stripper and murder scenes with no discernable links. Boring smut with bloodless kills.
