A teenager finds he has crucial knowledge that might prevent an intergalactic war between battling robot armies. Spectacular – in the Debordian sense – SF comedy with excellent technical credits, but shot like the fever dream of a Sunny D-addled child. Excessive, and with a nasty after-taste. Four direct sequels followed.
A serial killer stalks a group of film students. Tenuous (and only vaguely urban legend-ish) sequel that has fun moments and a couple of neat movie shout-outs, but which is unscary, not gory, is illogical, and has few characters to root for. The whodunnit angle gets lost in the process. A third movie followed.
A serial killer re-enacts the true-life killings immortalised in a 70s drive-in movie. Well-directed horror flick with a neat premise (the 1976 film of the same name features throughout) and a decent cast of character actors, though the whodunnit climax is underwhelming.
