The Villainess

7/10 - An extended remix of Nikita - sharing some of the same set-pieces, but adding more plot and some frenzied (if wobbly) action sequences. At times the frame-rate just isn't adequate for the action. Confusing at times with multiple time-periods and face/name-changes.

Mayhem

8/10 - Manic fun, but shows its limited budget at times.

Double Date

7/10 - Pacing was a bit uneven, and some of the humour a bit weak... but still a decent enough horror comedy.

InControl

6/10 - Tricky one, this... like Shrooms in the sense that by its nature it's impossible to know what was really going on. Which, in the end, limits its effectiveness.

Killing Ground

7/10 - Pretty good example of the running-around-in-the-woods genre. But I need closure, dammit! What happened to Banjo?

Game of Death

7/10 - Pretty good, though the initially vapid characters took a while to gel. The gore shot for Jogger #1 was comedically bad.

Cold Hell

8/10 - Superior thriller, albeit without that much horror in the mix. Good characters, good action.

Attack of the Adult Babies

2/10 - Full credit to the editor of the trailer for this, which somehow didn't look like a steaming pile of poo. It's not funny, it's not scary. I guess it might be possible to get drunk enough to enjoy this... might you might die of alcohol poisoning first. We await your experimental results.

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...

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?

Re: Personal safety

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