T-Meter Title | Year
2.5/4 77% Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark (2019) Scary Stories manages to do well by its source material and offers a few genuine scares to boot - especially for the new, young horror fans at which the film is targeted. - Philadelphia Daily News EDIT

3/4 79% Halloween (2018) It also essentially recycles the first film's structure, and serves mostly as a love letter to Carpenter's landmark film - but with way more gore. - Philadelphia Daily News EDIT

2.5/4 47% Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween (2018) Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween, though fun, comes off more like a direct-to-video adaptation of the original's story than a stand-alone addition to the franchise. - Philadelphia Daily News EDIT

2.5/4 75% Bad Times at the El Royale (2018) Goddard provides ample space for his star-studded cast to play, often to great effect, thanks mostly to lesser-known stars like Erivo and Pullman. - Philadelphia Daily News EDIT

2.5/4 33% The Predator (2018) While it's neat to see another addition to the Predator universe, the payoff here doesn't exactly feel like it was worth the decade-long wait. - Philadelphia Daily News EDIT

23% The Happytime Murders (2018) The problem... is that while the movie goes too far with its unsavory elements, it doesn't go far enough with everything else. - Philadelphia Daily News EDIT

2/4 35% Super Troopers 2 (2018) It's a fun trip down memory lane, but like a high school reunion, it ends up reminding us that the good old days are good in part because they're gone. - Philadelphia Daily News EDIT

2/4 52% Tomb Raider (2018) You can take Angelina Jolie out of Tomb Raider, but you can't make the movie any more exciting - even if you replace her with Academy Award winner Alicia Vikander. - Philadelphia Daily News EDIT

3/4 95% Gilbert (2017) But while Gilbert may not break ground with its angle, its contemplative take on what separates Gottfried as a performer from Gottfried as a person is interesting enough to drive the film, even if you may not particularly like his stand-up. - Philadelphia Inquirer EDIT

3/4 68% mother! (2017) However you interpret the flick, at the very least it will have you talking. - Philadelphia Daily News EDIT

46% Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (2016) Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is fun and funny, if lacking the zombie element that garnered its source novel so much attention. - Philadelphia Daily News EDIT
