Ghost Killers vs Bloody Mary

7/10 - Ghostbusters 3. Took too long to get going, but eventually found its stride. Few caught the thrilling post-credits footage...

Porno

6/10 - Passable comedy horror which doesn't quite nail either. The 'camp' twist falls very flat.

It's amazing what you can do with a shoelace.

Kindred Spirits

6/10 - Believability is stretched thin by having two actresses with very different looks cast as 'almost sisters'.

Bliss

5/10 - Incessant strobe effects and wobble-cam make this borderline unwatchable. There's an intense vampire movie in there somewhere... maybe. Needed less volume in the first half to avoid viewer fatigue. Continuity was a mess... she drives past the same building twice, is followed by a white Jeep t...

Cut Off

8/10 - Complex German thriller. Not one to watch without your full attention...

Needs an epilepsy warning for strobes.

Knives and Skin

3/10 - Arty mess with no reason to be at FF... apart from a wandering corpse that's never explained.

Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark

7/10 - Well made but a bit meandering... the stories weren't linked well to their victims after Harold.

Come to Daddy

8/10 - Nice twist, then heads off the rails in the second half (in a good way). What Tarantino should be doing.

Dark Encounter

7/10 - Well made, but... odd. The twist seemed to leave the audience somewhat baffled. Interesting but not really enjoyable.
