He's Out There

7/10 - OK house invasion movie, let down by a particularly useless kid and crippling injuries that are just shrugged off... not to mention a storybook that didn't go anywhere. The string thing and tea party were nice, though.

The Man Who Killed Hitler and then The Bigfoot

?/10 - I don't know what to do with this. I don't know what's in the box, either... though a pistol would seem the obvious bet.

Hell Is Where The Home Is

7/10 - Too slow in the early stages, but at least it's setting up a more complicated situation for later. The script then doesn't make the best use of that, alas. Definitely enjoyable at times, though.

2/10 - Drab. Or at least, the first hour was... at which point I decided that sleep was the better option.

Upgrade

9/10 - Action scifi with a horror edge. Mainstream enough (and good enough) to do quite well if it gets the right release. Some interesting shots in the fight scenes - though it felt like a bit of slowmo might have helped.

What Keeps You Alive

8/10 - Sometimes unexpectedly twisty, sometimes annoyingly predictable (LOOK AT ME I'M A PLOT DEVICE FOR LATER ON!). A tad too long. But well made and good-looking, particularly for a crew+cast of just 13.

The Devil's Doorway

8/10 - I'm not a fan of found footage / wobblecam... but this is about as good as it gets. Interesting setup, good acting (particularly from Father Thomas) and nicely creepy.

Heretiks

5/10 - dull and grey. By the end, chunks of the audience were laughing at a movie that definitely wasn't meant to be a comedy... There was some potential here for a psychic nun detective story (a thriving genre), but that's not how it come out. (If you're in film, and anyone ever says, "I'm going fo...

8\10 - Not too loud or flashy, thank goodness. Enjoyable romp with believable sets / props and some decent variation on the zombie norm. One hole, though... how does the dealer get back in?

7/10 - Good old-fashioned creature feature. The two non-deaths were annoying, and the night shots struggled at times.

The Most Assassinated Woman in the World

7/10 - OK, but disappointing that the payoff didn't actually deal with the main problem... you go to all that trouble and don't stop the killer?!

Incident in a Ghostland

8/10 - Grim. Terrible title. The twist was annoying at first but grew on me later.

Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich

6/10 - Let down by the ending - too much time in the hotel, then didn't use the house/museum again and suddenly we're done. The last kill seemed unnecessary. Making the entire story into issue #1 of an ongoing comic series would not be sensible.

5/10 - Tried to do something interesting, but ended up just too pretentious. Same problem as Shrooms - I don't really know how much of the movie actually happened.

The Cleaning Lady

8/10 - I mostly enjoyed this one, but it was let down a bit by Shelly's motivations - which were all over the place.

Also... you don't keep hydrofluoric acid in a metal container, and it's more lethal as a poison than as an acid. Odd choice.
