Tideland (2006)

"It's easy to say there's never been a film quite like Tideland before, nor will there likely ever be again, which is what helps make it a quintessential Terry Gilliam film."

Vegas Vampires (2007)

"I got the sense that Vegas Vampires was made for shits and giggles and that's about all it's good for."

Brush with Death (2007)

"A Brush With Death attempts to be a shocking, disturbing film and ends up a total nonsensical mess!" EDIT

Open Water 2 (Adrift) (2007)

"Open Water 2: Adrift is a sequel in name only labeled as a second installment by studio executives trying to cash in on another film's success."

The Gathering (2006)

"The good news is that The Gathering does not suffer from any dated material even though it is half a decade old."

Blood Legend ()

"The longer Blood Legend went on the more I found myself asking one simple question: Why the hell am I still watching it? Damned if I know."

Vidocq (Dark Portals: The Chronicles of Vidocq) (2001)

Bug Buster (Some Things Never Die) (1998)

Dead Mary (2006)

"I've watched Dead Mary and can't unwatch it. It may be a labor of love and a technically competent film, but it doesn't numb the anger coursing through my soul."

Gwoemul (The Host) (2007)

"The Host is a rare film that deserves to be celebrated. This is a movie lover's movie %u2013 a blistering monster epic, a humorous satire, and a moving drama all rolled into one."

The Devil's Den (2007)

Bloody Mary (2007)

"Know what the true horror is here, folks? The stench of missed opportunity that permeates the air the second this DVD is cracked open."

Hannibal Rising (2007)

"Hannibal Rising is a slick and horrifying ride you are forced to experience at the edge of a knife. Washed out scenes ease your senses in counterpoint to high contrast visuals depicting the worst things human beings are capable of."

Hannibal Rising (2007)

"This is a tale of a boy bound by duty to become a man more frightening than any sickening thing the world could throw at him. Don't look away for a minute." EDIT

Deaden (2006)

"Deaden is a fun, bloody, mean-spirited indie film that I think horror fans will really enjoy."

The Empty Acre (2007)

"Dark endings like that of The Empty Acre always make me feel reassured about the future of genre filmmaking."

Hellboy Animated: Sword of Storms (2006)

"Hellboy: Sword of Storms is a must own for fans. The feature itself is wall-to-wall action, and the DVD extras deliver every single thing you could ever want to know."

Masters of Horror - Dario Argento: Pelts (2007)

""Pelts" is one of the sickest and sexiest films from Argento. The Masters of Horror series is learning and improving both on television and on DVD."

The Grudge 2 (2006)

"This unrated director's cut does a lot to fix most of the problems. The film seems more complete. More cohesive."

The Messengers (2007)

"The Messengers is another exercise in overly used Hollywood ghost effects... The PG-13 rating is very stereotypical in this case. It's just pre-packaged, mass market horror. The title may as well be a 10 digit number with a barcode over it." EDIT

Die Nacht der lebenden Loser (Night of the Living Dorks) (2005)

"Night of the Living Dorks is a mixed bag for sure. It's almost as if it were two different movies."

Blood and Chocolate (2007)

"...a dark, moody fairytale set in modern day, perfect for a date with that special someone who doesn't want to be subjected to the usual gore overkill we've been treated to in the past couple of years"

Prey (2006)

"Overall, there's really nothing wrong with the directing, the writing, or even the acting...The only knock against Prey is that it's a very conventional thriller that's perfectly watchable, yet never particularly engaging"

The Hitcher (2007)

" Their highest ambition is making teenage girls jump out of their chairs."

Night Skies (2007)

"Night Skies is not a great film, but man, do the creature effects help to push this one over the top to score way higher than it would have otherwise."

Serum (2006)

"It's too bad that just when the movie really should be kicking into high gear it begins to sputter and fall apart. It's like writer/director Steve Franke said, "To hell with the story! I'm just gonna kill everyone I spent the first half of the film introd"

Mexican Werewolf in Texas (2007)

The Breed (2006)

"The Breed is not going to break any new horror or killer dog subgenre standards. As it stands, it is an acceptable time killer that won't challenge or offend."

THR3E (2007)

"Thr3e basically has two modes: boring mode and stupid mode. The film is only 108 minutes long, but I swear there are periods where it felt like it might as well have been 308."

Forest ()

"This direct-to-VHS turned silver screen gracer is too light on the body count to be a real slasher and far too dumb to stimulate any sort of mental terror." EDIT

Zombie Nation (2004)

"Zombie Nation is a mess that needs whipping up. There is no justification for how bad this movie turned out"

James Ellroy Presents Bazaar Bizarre (2004)

"Bazaar Bizarre will not suit the taste of every one. It is a hybrid of experience and knowledge. We are taken to places and then given pause." EDIT

13 Seconds (2003)

"13 Seconds is worth a look because it does have a worthwhile story with some seriously unnerving visuals and a nifty twist ending that explains the film's title."

1-Ichi (2005)

"The movie works in its own right, cascading to a climax that is the ultimate build-up. We leave this movie wanting to see the next." EDIT

Greed (Axe) (1999)

"Horror movie, noir, action thriller, chick flick - it fails on all counts."

Avia Vampire Hunter (2005)

"Avia: Vampire Hunter is nothing more than a collection of random scenes connected to one another by only the basic concept of the plot & not by any actual developing plotline."

Arachnia (2003)

"If you liked Eight Legged Freaks and you can overlook the film's cheap stop-motion effects, then Arachnia should satisfy your B-movie fix on a rainy night."

Aquanoids (2003)

"Aquanoids only has two things going for it. The first is the obvious enthusiasm of the cast. The second is a gorgeous young starlet in skimpy outfits."

Apartment Zero (1989)

"If you have a taste for a true psychological thriller, Apartment Zero is one to treasure. Again and again." EDIT
