A US student to the UK survives a werewolf attack. Spry horror-comedy with still-excellent make-up effects and an absurdist tone, as well as a keen sense of horror movie history and strength in depth in the casting.
The next generation of Griswolds go to Walley World. Sequel/reboot to the 80s Chevy Chase flicks; an okay episodic gross-out road movie of the old school. Inevitably hit-and-miss, but some genuinely funny moments.
A struggling farmer swallows his pride in order to escort a charismatic bandit to justice for the bounty. Thoroughly splendid and thought-provoking Western with great performances and a focus on moral quandaries.
After his family is killed, the adult Martin seeks out Mister. Autumnal but impressive sequel to Stake Land, this second part is better on atmosphere than on its lean revenge plot, but is watchable nevertheless.
A teen and a grizzled hunter journey across a post-vampire-apocalypse America. An episodic but imaginative spin on the genre, wth plenty of ideas, some clever spins on old tropes, and a fun central performance.
A mail-order company is taken over by a vampire corporation. That rarity – a genuinely funny horror-comedy – which makes the most of its modest budget with sprightly playing, decent gore, and a very niche cameo appearance joke.
Fresh out of prison, an ex-cop tries to get his life back on track in this small town, American thriller. Above average genre piece, with a solid cast and neo-noir trappings, this doesn’t stray too far from expectations, but still entertains. 🙂
