The Woods (2006, dir. Lucky McKee)

A rebellious teen with latent psychic powers finds herself in a sinister all-girls boarding school. A well-paced 60s-set supernatural tale that does what you might expect, but with some class and style.

Maniac Cop (1988, dir. William Lustig)

A kill-happy cop returns from the dead to get revenge on the NYPD. Patchy late entry in the slasher cycle, this has some of the quirkiness of writer/producer Larry Cohen’s best work, but is let down in places by flat performances and unimaginative direction.
