Sorority Row (2009)

"The young'uns and fairly squeamish in your audience may succumb to the two decent jump scares you'll find within, but expect nothing more...a case study of a wasted opportunity in R-rated horror."

Triangle (2009)

"If you're a fan of Christopher Smith's previous work and want to see his cinematic maturation, it's definitely worth seeing Triangle as it certainly isn't a complete loss."

Gamer (2009)

"Gamer grabs you by the back of the head and runs you through a minefield with internal organs flying at you around every corner...It's fast, mean and dirty as all hell."

Long Weekend (Nature's Grave) (2008)

"Nature's Grave isn't worth wasting words on. It's Grand Theft Cinema: a pointless, artless clone that serves no purpose."

H2: Halloween II (2009)
