The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986, dir. Tobe Hooper)

An ambitious DJ and a vengeful sheriff hunt the Sawyer family. Scattershot sequel, foregrounding black comedy, gore effects, and a subversion of Reaganite family values. Gleeful rather than good or scary, it nevertheless has a few startling moments.

The Belko Experiment (2016, dir. Greg McLean)

Employees of a mysterious company are compelled to murder each other. Would-be black comedy better at delivering gloopy kills than in having much to say. Neither funny or subversive enough; it gets tiresome before 90 minutes are up.

Another perspective? Here’s Xussia’s view.

Attack of the Lederhosen Zombies (2016, dir. Dominik Hartl)

Snowboarders fend off zombies in a ski-lodge. Terrible title, weak jokes, and duff acting aside, this is a tatty-but-endearing one-joke movie which foregrounds gory slapstick and the occasional genuinely inventive visual over logic or story. Passable.
