A mad bomber and a faulty computer threaten the first passenger Space Shuttle flight. Cash-in sequel to the far superior Airplane! with most of the same cast and jokes. A couple of great sight-gags aside, this is a shoddy money-grab.
7th(!) in the franchise finds adult Andy obsessed with killing Chucky, while Nina is in a psychiatric institution where inmates start dying. A superior series entry which makes few concessions for newcomers, but has much fun with asylum-set tropes and some decent production values.
20 years on, a young man and friends make a documentary about the events of The Blair Witch Project. Contrivances are needed to get the movie going, but the rest of the film is effective-enough found-footage jumpscare material in this sequel/reboot.
A deep space colony vessel investigates a strange transmission from an Earth-like world. More Prometheus than Alien, this series entry unevenly balances monster horror and teenagery philosophical musings. Odd, but not uninteresting.
An ex-cop’s investigations lead to another family in supernatural jeopardy. More creepy jump-scare shenanigans from Blumhouse; this starts well but gets bogged down in underdeveloped plotlines and discarded ideas.
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.
20 years after Independence Day, the aliens return. Sequel/reprise of the 1996 original, taking a lighter, space operatic tone. ID4:R works because it plays as B-movie fodder, and is less interested in plausibility than in creating fun moments.
