T-Meter Title | Year
No Score Yet Spirits of the Air, Gremlins of the Clouds (1989) It could easily bore anyone who isn't willing to just sit back and enjoy (illicit substances may help) but it looks beautiful. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 5, 2019
No Score Yet Mutant on the Bounty (1989) Just kind of there, and it doesn't really seem to be appealing to anyone in particular. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT

No Score Yet Hitler's Daughter (1990) It's got a certain ridiculousness to it and it's never dull so much as nonsensical. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 5, 2019
39% Iron Sky (2012) A solid little satire with some impressive-looking set pieces that doesn't have a sadistic bone in its body, and that's not a bad thing at all. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 5, 2019
No Score Yet The Nest (1988) Fits like an old comfortable shoe, albeit one with rotting roach meat in the toe. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT

100% Adjust Your Tracking: The Untold Story of the VHS Collector (2013) You may end up wanting to build a video store in your basement as well, even if you may have a problem getting that cleared with the other members of your household. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT

No Score Yet Midnight (1989) Redgrave's flamboyant persona keeps it watchable even if the movie itself is pulled in so many directions that it fails to reach any of them. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 5, 2019
No Score Yet The Jitters (1988) A mess of a movie, but it's not a dull one, and there's no point during the brief running time where you won't be entertained - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 5, 2019
No Score Yet Buried Alive (1990) One of the network's finest forays into features, even if, on paper, it seems like it would barely have enough plot to fill up a segment in a Creepshow sequel. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 5, 2019
No Score Yet Making Off (2012) An insanely revolting film, going out of its way to shock and disgust in ways that feel more like a dare than anything resembling a narrative - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 5, 2019
No Score Yet Rattled (1996) A PG-13 creature feature stripped of wit or fun, punctuating commercial breaks not with snake attacks but with family drama. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2019
No Score Yet Neverlake (2014) Prime material for a particularly dark slumber party, and the finale is chilling enough to send shivers up a fairly hardened horror fan's spine - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2019
82% Warm Bodies (2013) The perfect film to see if you bring along your friends or significant other that's into "zombies" but not Zombie - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2019
87% Borgman (2014) A film for a pretty specific taste and an openness to being perplexed. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2019
88% Cheap Thrills (2014) The sort of original, intense, darkly comic character-driven thrill ride that I'd love to see more genre filmmakers working on - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2019
100% Video Nasties: Moral Panic, Censorship & Videotape (2010) A fascinating look at the golden age of home video and the controversies that rose from its prominence - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2019
No Score Yet Windows (1980) While it's far from a perfect film, it's nowhere near the travesty its reputation suggests. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2019
24% Devil's Knot (2014) It never quite finds a reason to exist, and that's a genuine shame, as a case as multi-dimensional as the one it used as source material should have more than enough inspiration. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2019
14% Saving Grace B. Jones (2012) A sadly muddled mess that never comes close to settling on what type of film it's supposed to be, and more importantly, what it's supposed to be about. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2019
No Score Yet Alien Space Avenger (1991) Can be downright entertaining to an audience with their expectations in check and a case of beer at the ready. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2019
38% Odd Thomas (2014) Has enough character to be an entertaining ride despite the occasional narrative stumble - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 4, 2019
No Score Yet Boardwalk (1979) An odd mixture of understated drama and allegory for urban decay, but it's never less than compelling thanks to the performances of the two stars. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2019
No Score Yet Deadly Game (1991) Exactly the sort of hugely entertaining potboiler that TV movies were made for. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2019
No Score Yet Drinking Games (2013) Lacks the same self-confidence that its characters lack, attempting to overcompensate with a loud, brash act when it doesn't need to because it's a solid enough story with identifiable situations on its own. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2019
No Score Yet Way of the Wicked (2014) Never quite finds a motivation to be anything more than a 90 minute time passer. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 3, 2019
No Score Yet The Space Invaders: In Search Of Lost Time (2013) Serves as a great springboard into this cultural renaissance, spotlighting some of those that paved the way and supply the much-needed resources for the vintage video games to be played well into the future - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
No Score Yet Tin Can Man (2014) Unique and eerie enough to be worth seeing, even if the almost comically lackluster lead character hobbles the potential emotional investment it could have had. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
No Score Yet Dead Husbands (1998) A surprisingly mean-spirited bit of black comedy that sometimes feels like two different tones at war with each other but still manages to be consistently entertaining. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
50% All Cheerleaders Die (2014) More of a fun examination of cultural tropes rather than a subversive take on gender constructs. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
No Score Yet Murder 101 (1991) Simultaneously ridiculous and clever, entertaining and familiar, and something you'll be perfectly comfortable having on while you fold laundry, but won't be too concerned about if you miss a few minutes of while you feed the pets. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
91% The Dog (2014) An expertly-crafted documentary on a riveting subject, and one that leaves you only wanting more than its 105 minutes could show. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
No Score Yet MurderDrome (2013) You can see the love of making the movie coming across on screen until its well-conceived closing credits roll. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
No Score Yet Chains (1989) Provides a fair share of violence, a decent-looking but underdeveloped gang, a smattering of social context and a little bit of character development, but it never quite does any of these things well or loudly enough to really stand out from the pack. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
78% Sharknado (2013) Lacks the sincerity that the likes of Plan 9 has or the genuine ambition & talent of much of the output Corman produced in the '70s that made those drive-in films so endearing beyond the concepts and poster art used to get people into the theater. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
57% Curtains (1983) Has some amazing moments even it doesn't add up to much, and there is a reason that scenes like a murder on ice have become more iconic than the film itself. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
No Score Yet Duplicates (1992) A perfectly satisfying little technothriller with some entertainingly archaic technology, like a budget-deprived version of a Michael Crichton adaptation - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
94% Stranger by the Lake (2014) A compellingly eerie tale of identity, self-loathing, death and sex in a world we rarely see portrayed in film. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
40% The Slumber Party Massacre (1982) A good-natured film, even if a majority of the cast meet their deaths by being on the wrong end of a giant power drill. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
38% Final Terror (1985) More of a survivalist adventure with slasher elements than a straightforward kill-'em-off - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
43% Blood Glacier (2014) A worthy entry into the fairly populous subgenre of snow-set creature features. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
33% Beneath (2013) The characters are so one-note and annoying that it doesn't manage to be anything close to compelling as a character drama, and they're not bold enough archetypes that it plays as satire. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
No Score Yet Time Trackers (1988) Time Trackers has a problem. A serious, serious problem. And it's all in the ending - the very, very ending, the final scene that leads to the credits. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
No Score Yet Girlfriend from Hell (1989) Ideal for mindless, half-drunken TV viewing in which all you require is that what you're watching be engaging enough to keep you occupied while you're waiting for the pizza to arrive. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
No Score Yet Camp Dread (2014) It may not reinvent the genre, but it certainly embraces it in a perfectly entertaining fashion, rarely falling into the traps in which so many retro-slashers become burdened. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
No Score Yet HazMat (2013) Well-paced enough that the more negligible aspects of it can be overlooked and those with a love for some old-school slasher antics should give it a try. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
No Score Yet Vannin' (2013) Provides a great look at a world I'd only known about tangentially, energetically presenting it as a welcoming world that I'm glad to get a glimpse of. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
No Score Yet House of Mortal Sin (The Confessional) (1975) Those wanting to see a religion-based horror pic with a head on its thematic shoulders won't be let down. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
No Score Yet Ten Little Indians (1989) Christie's original story is made of stern enough stuff that even Towers couldn't make a completely worthless version of it - no matter how many times he tried. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
No Score Yet Gila! (2013) A heartfelt and likeable little tribute that should make for a fond evening for vintage monster movie buffs. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 2, 2019
No Score Yet That's Sexploitation (2013) Works as well as an informative documentary as it does a hugely entertaining compilation film. - Daily Grindhouse EDIT
