An orphaned boy comes to live with his warlock uncle. Generally sprightly horror flick for children with good central performances and neat jumpscares from genre stalwart Roth. A bit busy, storywise; could have used some time to breathe. Fun tho.

Death Wish (2018, dir. Eli Roth)
After his wife is murdered in a home invasion, a mild-mannered doctor turns vigilante. Tonally-inconsistent remake of the 70s Bronson flick. Horror and black comedy elements along with the violent action, and flirtation with Willis/Kersey as psychotic. Not uninteresting in its way.

Cabin Fever (2016, dir. Travis Z)
Five students rent a cabin in the woods and become exposed to a flesh-eating contagion. One splendid Grand Guignol moment aside, this is a duff remake of a not-especially-good recent horror, ticking off all the cliches The Cabin In The Woods subverted.
