Antagony & Ecstasy

Not just a complete failure as a sequel, it's one of the five or ten worst films from the whole of the 1990s.

For the most part you stare at the screen and wonder how anybody involved thought this could possibly have been any good.

Cinema Crazed

A sloppy, poorly written, lazily conceived mess from start to finish.

Passable -- and much better than its reputation.

A cheap rip-off with a story and ending that made no f-ing sense!

The kind of cinematic endeavor where you suspect both cast and crew were obligated to bring their own beer.

Actually a fairly serviceable slasher flick up until a head-scratching last fifteen minutes that introduces and then fails to explain a series of plainly stupid plot twists.

The bottom line is that the only Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie that you need is to see is the first.

Without much wit of its own, Kim Henkel's tyro film is just what the polished Scream makes fun of.

Apollo Guide

The crux of this film's failure is its inexplicable attempt at campy humour and its incoherent ending.

From electric cattle prods to human infernos, it's an tough, rough ride.

Its wretchedness is so complete it can't help but attract bad-movie addicts the way a dead skunk draws flies.
