“Kind of a cheesy revisit to a dying franchise.”

 

Hellraiser: Bloodline (1996)

“Science fiction meets historical fiction, and they make an okay movie with some cool special effects.”

 

Haute Tension [High Tension] (2003)

“French slasher with great murder sequences, but a plot twist full of holes.”

 

I Spit on Your Grave (1978)

“Absurd rape horror that almost makes you laugh, not good.”

 

Kill List (2011)

Lawnmower man (1992)

“The idea still stands up, somewhat, even if the technology doesn’t.”

 

Lo (2009)

“A wonderfully minimalist Faustian tale that took me completely by surprise.”

“King, Goldman, Reiner, Caan, Bates, perfectly unsettling!”

 

Pandorum (2009)
