– (2021) – When “purgers” take over America after a set curfew, survivors try to escape into Mexico. An unnecessary outing that only serves to beat to death a tired premise by prolonging the government allotted time for a day of mayhem. Characters still mean nothing while the violence against them is hard to feel compassionate about. Has plenty of ordinary action, but no extraordinary soul.

– (2008) – A young woman who’s still possessed by the spirit of Lizzie Borden resumes killing in her name. Doesn’t do anything different this time around, as the prom motif is too quickly breezed through. Still offers some outlandishly cheap gore, but not much else. Luckily, it’s short.

– (2006) – A young woman who dresses like Lizzie Borden for a haunted house attraction takes on her murderous persona. The production is lousy and the acting fares worse, but for a no-budget slasher this does have some amusing moments. Cheap gore is in high supply, as is enough cheese to make watching a breeze.

– (1989) – A feminist and a chauvinist investigate a tribe of women that kill and eat men. Strives to showcase the differences between men and women, but not in a way that stands out from any comedic sitcom. Too many unfunny jokes ruin the could-have-been fun vibe, while violence is only presented in the opening scene. A B-movie that lacks gratuitous moments.

– (2004) – An infection is turning people into zombies, prompting a news crew to intervene. For the most part this is ordinary undead slop on a two dollar budget, but it does include some pretty funny mock commercials. Has a busy structure and doesn’t last long, but oozes with amateurishness.

– (1984) – Theater employees deal with the mysterious return of a killer who once stalked the same locale. Barely has a plot, as this is mainly built on random events in and outside the titular setting. Attempts humor, but isn’t the least bit funny. The horror, on the other hand, is laughable.

– (1983) – A female rock band falls prey to a legendary madman after their tour bus breaks down near his domain. Consist of little more than wandering characters who banter with one another before separating from the group and getting picked off. Despite the title, there’s hardly any blood, although your eyes may bleed from boredom.

– (1982) – A dog trained to kill African Americans is put through trials of rehabilitation. Makes a strong case for social injustice through animals, but some actions are more improbable than innovative. Mostly enjoyable, and ultimately upsetting.

– (1943) – A nurse is hired to care for a catatonic woman on an island of rampant voodoo. The atmosphere and ritual inclusions hold attention, but the pace makes an hour feel like a day. Lacks suspense and a substantial purpose.

– (1991) – A waste of life sells his soul to become the world’s biggest rock star, but has to become a band member to get started? Doesn’t make sense, but moves at a steady pace, has Traci Lords, and offers some okay ideas. Equally bad and amusing.

– (1987) – A girl returns home only to find that an active serial killer is on the loose. Has a couple of effective murders, but the story is a lame whodunit in which every character deserves to die. An irksome bore that makes you want to punch Tiny Tim.

– (1999) – A homicidal hermaphrodite further complicates an already screwed up movie set. Every scene arrangement feels jumbled, though most of the chaotic events are zany and far from politically correct. Gets better after a lousy beginning, but full blown enjoyment comes in small doses.
