T-Meter Title | Year
No Score Yet Bong of the Living Dead (2017) There are a few missteps here, but the film is a very fun horror-comedy, which of course is what you're expecting when you see a title like this out in the wild. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

33% Feral (2018) At the end of the film, we finally get a genuinely moving emotional scene. It's too bad it came so late, because if Feral had concentrated on this kind of emotion instead of its mechanical plotting, we could have had a great film here. Well, too bad. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

75% Monster Party (2018) Goddamn, I love this deranged world that Chris von Hoffmann has created. It's crazy, violent, a bit shocking, and a lot of fun. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

33% E-Demon (2018) E-Demon had a neat premise, but that's about it. As soon as the concept wears thin (and it does so very early), you're left with nearly 90 minutes of bad acting and bad plotting. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

76% Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (2006) It's cool to see that he didn't chain himself to the limitations of the mockumentary format. I've actually never seen a film shot like this, so that's pretty cool. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

No Score Yet The Soultangler (1987) It's a real treat to watch. The visuals effects are usually pretty good, too. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

40% #Screamers (2018) The poor writing really makes this a mess of a film. There's certainly real talent involved in this production, but they just couldn't pull this one off. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

67% Terrifier (2018) On a technical level, the movie is top-notch. The scenes look as though they're lit by natural light, a few bulbs here and there. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

100% Strawberry Flavored Plastic (2018) I think this was a worthy idea to explore, and I hope Bemis can flesh these ideas out further, with better attention to pacing and dialogue on the next go-around. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

50% The Misguided (2018) Wendel is the only real addict in the film, but his personality is so strong that it sucks everyone around him into a powerful vortex. Wendel is himself the main drug here. This is what makes The Misguided particularly interesting to watch. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

68% 68 Kill (2017) 69 Kill won't bore you, and at least it tries something new, conceptually, but the poor execution will most likely doom it to obscurity. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

28% Silent Night, Deadly Night (1984) Honestly, if you're a horror fan, Silent Night, Deadly Night should be an essential part of your Christmas rotation. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

92% Radius (2017) Radius is a thriller with a gimmick that could easily have fallen apart in the wrong hands. Luckily, the directors and their cast know their stuff and deliver on a fun almost-thriller with a neat hook. - Cultured Vultures EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2019
No Score Yet Darkness Rising (2017) It has a few interesting surprises, but not enough to really keep the viewer captivated, even within its sparse 80-minute runtime. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

47% Red Christmas (2017) It's ultimately a well-done slasher film with an interesting enough gimmick. It's over the top in ways that horror fans are sure to appreciate. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

33% Demons (2017) I can get behind movies of any quality that are made with passion, but I just whiff too much cynicism here to really give the filmmakers a lot of credit. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

89% Better Watch Out (2017) Better Watch Out is a fun, surprisingly emotional horror movie experience. - Cultured Vultures EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2019
75% Cold Moon (2017) Cold Moon is a dark little tale that takes you into the heart of paranoia and speaks to the real and latent violence of a strange transitional period in the American South. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

88% Anti Matter (2017) From a purely visual standpoint, the second act of the film is great. - Cultured Vultures EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 23, 2019
60% The Atoning (2017) The Atoning almost becomes arthouse horror, but there's enough B-movie sensibilities about the piece for it to appeal to horror fans of all sorts. - Cultured Vultures EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2019
17% Clowntergeist (2017) The acting is okay. The interactions between Emma and her best friend Heather (Monica Baker) aren't totally cringe-worthy and occasionally, sometimes accidentally, charming. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

No Score Yet Circus Kane (2017) Circus Kane goes completely off the rails as it attempts to pull off a twist ending. This does not work. Kane does a bunch of preachifying, too, and none of it makes any sense. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

No Score Yet Simple Creature (2016) The tone, plot, and pacing are all over the place. There's some annoying lens flare at the start of the film, but it's soon forgotten about. - Cultured Vultures EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2019
No Score Yet Volumes of Blood (2015) Some of the stories were quite brief, leading to some pacing issues, but they were all at least marginally entertaining. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

11% The Gracefield Incident (2017) We're left with a film that, besides the hook, lacks a lot of originality. It all adds up to an experience that's not liable to leave a huge impression after it's over. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

71% The Ice Cream Truck (2017) Russo is effective enough as the lead, though her performance is uneven. The writing wasn't quite as tight as it needed to be... But the ideas at the core of the movie are strong, and it's an intense thriller. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

No Score Yet America Has Fallen (2016) I just don't know if I can give this movie my so-bad-it's-good seal of approval, though I can't say I didn't have fun, despite an abundance of head-scratching moments. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

No Score Yet Lake Alice (2017) It wasn't great, and I'd be hard-pressed to recommend it except to waste some time. - Cultured Vultures EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2019
86% Who's Watching Oliver (2018) Even at its darkest, the comic sensibilities of Who's Watching Oliver keep it from becoming despairing, nihilistic. The ending is even kind of...cute(?) for an extreme horror film. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

No Score Yet Tsunambee (2015) Tsunambee could have been a hell of a lot of fun if director Milko Davis realized what kind of movie he was making. - Cultured Vultures EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 10, 2019
No Score Yet Let Me Make You a Martyr (2016) Let me Make You a Martyr is a rough movie experience, but ultimately it's quite rewarding, even uplifting. You just have to make it to the end. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

No Score Yet Occupants (2017) Occupants is a neat sci-fi horror movie that really kept me riveted once we got into the meat of the story. I was quite surprised at how original the flick was. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

No Score Yet Valley of Ditches (2016) The acting is pretty damn good all around. Russell Bradley Fenton is perfect as the antagonist, Sean. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

9/10 100% Artik (2019) Brutal and original, Artik is an existential study of violence and cruelty that's an essential watch for horror fans. - Cultured Vultures EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 6, 2019
88% Let Her Out (2017) Let Her Out is a hell of an experience. Very visually appealing, very visceral. If the story isn't quite up to snuff, the rest of the movie makes that easily forgivable. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

7/10 20% The Haunting of Sharon Tate (2019) Really, the last thing I expected when I started watching this movie was a metaphysical exploration of the idea of parallel realities by way of a low-budget exploitation film, but that's what I got, and I very much enjoyed the experience. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

9/10 91% Starfish (2019) Starfish is a unique vision from director A.T. White in his first feature film. Surreal and atmospheric, it should appeal to both fans of arthouse cinema and genre film. - Cultured Vultures EDIT

8.5 72% Night of the Creeps (1986) Night of the Creeps lacks the cynicism of a typical 80s horror flick, and it's almost wholesome as far as movies about nerds pursuing a hot girl out of their league go. - Cultured Vultures EDIT
