Jackals

5/10 - Too many jackals spoiled the broth on this one... little tension to be generated when the ending is inevitable. A bit flat anyway.

Alone

6/10 - Oh, hey, it's After from FF2012 again. Stupid idea, stupid solution, but kinda liked the characters. Deeply disappointed that no-one let off the grenade launcher. Oddly, it looks like it might be setting up for a potentially more interesting sequel... if anyone will still stump up a budget af...

The Bar

8/10 - Solidly made, with enough plot turns to keep you engaged.

Dead Shack

8/10 - A lonely old woman living in the woods is terrorized by a mean bunch of kids. Or... did I get that right? Oddly, felt like more comedy than horror.

Leatherface

7/10 - Stands up pretty well in its own right - the franchise link seems pretty irrelevant. The answer to the question, "Which of these kids is going to be Leatherface?" has a pretty simple answer, though... no-one cares. Were the other kids supposed to be Sawyers?

68 Kill

8/10 - Good fun throughout - maybe dragged a little once Chip was in the trailer, waiting for the inevitable...

Re: Personal safety

Also, check to see if there's a man living in the back of your wardrobe.

Sequence Break

3/10 - Loud, flickery nonsense that just wouldn't end. Totally worth the madness and vomiting if could I go back in time and not see this.

Freehold

7/10 - Simple idea, done well. Dragged a bit once the girl left, until the reveal... but solid otherwise.

Death Note

8/10 - Hard to be objective on this one as I've seen the Japanese movies. But it seemed to be a pretty faithful adaptation. The notes at the end might have become too convoluted for their own good... and perhaps it generally tried to cover too much ground. But it's good fun.

Psychopaths

3/10 - Emotionally uninvolving... and otherwise just an incoherent mess anyway. If the Empire IMAX seats weren't as tight I'd have walked out of this one.

Cult of Chucky

7/10 - Really enjoyed the first half... but this movie's random rule change seemed very arbitrary (and by this point I already had a better alternative in mind using Tiffany,Glen and Glenda). Andy's appearance was entirely wasted.
