Are we dead yet?

4/10 - Comedy, allegedly. Some OK plot hiding beneath a thick layer of idiots.
Spoiler:
Then it just stops. The prologue was apparently the ending, but that implies that our 'heroes' got the gold... but they didn't. Mr Sanderson's guys did, as far as we know.
I don't care anymore.

7/10 - Mainstream horror, nice and safe. 'Distinctly OK'.

Dark Sense

6/10 - Psychic Simon is alternately powerless or unstoppable... but otherwise this went pretty well. I was confused by his ability to heal himself... which I'd assumed only related to his psychic 'stigmata', but later seems to cover broken legs and acid burns (and in retrospect perhaps even a crushe...

Criminal Audition

7/10 - The twist eventually explains much of it... but half an hour in I was really annoyed with this for making no sense... and some of the characters should have reacted more to that, I think.

What happened to the lady from Logistics?

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.

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.

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

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