Jersey Shore Shark Attack (2012)

"I think the sharks are albino because the CGI staff didn't know how to render color on their Compaqs. Spielberg can rest easy."

The Cabin in the Woods (2012)

"It's nothing if not affectionate toward horror movies, maybe too much so, and it is so stuffed with things I can see myself pausing the Blu-ray repeatedly to see what I missed."
