Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
67% Zombieland: Double Tap (2019) In ten years, they couldn't come up with enough new ideas that they had to copy so many from the first one? ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

88% Ready or Not (2019) Part of the fun is understanding the family dynamic despite meeting them under heightened circumstances.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

100% Kindred Spirits (2019) The characters are well rounded, and there are enough variations on the sub-genre's formula that keep it from feeling like a throwback, making it a fully engaging experience.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

82% The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue (1974) Something I find even more impressive as the "zombie" section in our streaming service of choice gets more and more glutted with anonymous junk.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

65% Annabelle Comes Home (2019) The best of the Annabelle films...‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

68% Daybreakers (2010) The film offers a decent amount of action, the requisite creature FX an ambitious vampire narrative requires, and occasional vignettes that sell both the concept and the film's alternate reality.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

84% Alligator (1980) Sure, those miniature effects look even sillier when magnified, but we laughed WITH the movie, not AT it, which is an important distinction.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

85% The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part (2019) Ultimately, it's a perfectly good followup that unfortunately doesn't benefit from the lowered expectations that greeted the original.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

91% Mandy (2018) If you're on the fence with your opinion of [Cage] as a performer I think you'll find yourself swayed to the right side here - he is terrific, and I laud him for fighting to play Red instead of the more showy Jeremiah.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

100% The Unthinkable (Den blomstertid nu kommer) (2018) I'm here to make sure I say that it's worth seeking this one out when it comes your way.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

57% The Descent 2 (2009) Appreciate the bonus 90 minutes you get to spend down in the caves with these terrifying monsters.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

70% Climax (2019) It might very well be my favorite film of the year, both for its surprising content... and the realization that the likes of Avengers and Jurassic World... failed to create as much awe in this moviegoer as a filmmaker operating his own camera.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

60% Jaws 2 (1978) I am also a fan of slasher movies, so I like that the film almost seems like a Jaws-ified response to the slasher boom, as the film's second half revolves around a group of trapped teens being menaced by the shark. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

No Score Yet Deep Murder (2019) The niche target audience should have a good time with it. And if you're a slasher fan... well, you won't see much else like it, that's for sure.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

83% May the Devil Take You (Sebelum iblis menjemput) (2018) I'll remember it, which I guess is ultimately the important thing!‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

100% To Hell and Back: The Kane Hodder Story (2018) Luckily, the movie was quite good, and I'm glad it's finally being released so everyone else can enjoy it.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

85% The House That Dripped Blood (1971) What I liked most about this last segment is how it directly tied into the wraparounds, as opposed to being "just another story". ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

53% It Lives Again (1978) It actually checks in with a few of the original's characters, giving them an interesting role in the proceedings and showing some actual progression in their lives, rather than just tossing them in as fan service.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

82% What Keeps You Alive (2018) A mostly solid cat and mouse thriller doesn't quite stick the landing.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

68% Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich (2018) This movie will work best with a big crowd of like-minded folks hooting and hollering at the gory deaths, bad taste jokes, and -- for those who stay after the credits -- the triumphant survival of a crowd-pleasing supporting player we thought was dead.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

83% Ghost Stories (2018) Andy Nyman and Jeremy Dyson's stage play translates well to the big screen.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

54% Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988) It's...the best kind of sequel, one that lets the surviving characters continue their journeys while new characters get to kind of rehash the original's plot with different results. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

92% Drag Me to Hell (2009) Ultimately, what I find most endearing about the film is the same thing that I primarily love about the first two Evil Dead films: it's made by a guy who isn't afraid to let his warring sensibilities go up on display in a single film. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

70% Annabelle: Creation (2017) It ultimately felt like too much of a retread to really wow me. ‐ Birth.Movies.Death.

63% The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One (2017) ... you have something that falls somewhere between Serenity and a Syfy Original Movie, which might sound like a bit of an insult but I mean it as a compliment.‐ Birth.Movies.Death.
