A young woman returns to her hometown: a zombie-like outbreak occurs. This 90s-set series reboot draws from the franchise’s early video games. And that’s about it. A murky and confused action/horror flick with little clear idea about what to do with the property, or why bother.
A student and her estranged father are trapped in a house full of alligators during a hurricane. A tense and fun single-location horror thriller that makes the most of its excellent effects and actors, wringing every last sliver of tension from its gleefully B-movie premise. Recommended.
Thomas and friends mount a rescue mission. Third and last of the OK YA dystopian franchise. It doesn’t make much plot sense, but the action is capably handled, production design is good, and there’s a refreshing physicality to proceedings. For series fans only tho.
Jack Sparrow is hunted down by an old ghostly enemy. The fifth entry in the series is tedious in the extreme, a laboured and unfunny recycling of story elements from previous episodes, with a plainly bored cast of veterans. Time to lay these bones to rest.
