Dragon Wars (2007)

"A motion picture that doesn't have a single cynical bone in its body ... a film worthy of ridicule, scorn, and unconditional love. It all depends on how you look at it."

Joshua (2007)

"Ultimately the dichotomy between the skill of [director] Ratliff and his actors and the weakness of how the story plays out makes evaluating Joshua a tough task."

One Missed Call (2008)

"This is one call you should definitely miss."

The Signal (2008)

"Horror films with a message are rare. Well told, well acted, wet ones, are even rarer. You(TM)d have to be crazy not to watch The Signal." EDIT

Aliens vs. Predator: Requiem (AVP 2) (2007)

"Direction consists of visuals that are dark and moody, but lack any genuine atmosphere. While the emphasis on old school prosthetics over CGI is welcome, it's all still one big technical exercise. The Brothers capture the look of Alien and Predator movies"

Teeth (2007)

"A film like Teeth could've easily been a one-joke Troma movie or a hollow feminist tirade, but it wisely takes the high road as a quirky indie shocker and will have both sexes guarding their genitals from beginning to end."

I Am Legend (2007)

"It's a film that wants to have it both ways - as an unconventional horror movie and a mainstream crowd-pleaser."

[Rec] (2007)

"...this experience feels like being trapped in a haunted maze and there are images here that are the stuff of nightmares."

Day Watch (2007)

"The synergy between Khabensky and Bekmambetov is a major ingredient of the success of the film. Nothing is black and white, nothing is shoved down our throats, and nothing is over-explained."

Saw IV (2007)

"Saw IV is a perfectly serviceable sequel to a series that, for all intents and purposes, should've gone to outer space by now."

Diary of the Dead (2007)

"Diary is an uncompromised return to the indie roots that made this series great."

30 Days of Night (2007)

"30 Days of Night grabs this hoary monster by the throat, pumps it full of the thick rich blood of life, and shoves it out to greet you, eat you, and coat you in glorious mists of red firing from oh-so-many newly exposed arterial sprays."

Resident Evil: Extinction (2007)

"With almost non-stop action, above average effects and enough bloodshed to calm your inner horror freak, it can be said that Extinction, dropkicks Apocalypse upside the head."

Halloween (2007)

"If it was Rob Zombie's intention to put us inside the head of Michael Myers, then he absolutely succeeded, because from beginning to end, I felt absolutely nothing."

Wrong Turn 2: Dead End (2007)

"Lynch has crafted a sequel using everything that worked form the first film and adding just enough new elements to make it stand out."

Skinwalkers (2007)

"Skinwalkers is quite possibly the dumbest movie of the year that wasn't meant to be a dumb comedy to begin with."

ZZYZX (2006)

"A rich character and dialogue driven story where no one is quite what they seem to be and the audience is kept guessing."

The Monster Squad (1987)

"Lionsgate has given it the golden treatment, and as it stands right now this package has my vote for Horror DVD of the Year!"

Masters of Horror - Stuart Gordon: The Black Cat (2007)

Captivity (2007)

Black Kiss (2007)

"Sounded good on paper; however, once one dives into the experience, all the luster washes away and you are left in a kiddy-pool of semi-stale ideas."

Dead Silence (2007)

"Dead Silence is an homage to all the great quiet and creeping horror films that you couldn't walk out your front door without tripping over a few decades back."

Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon (2006)

Mummy Maniac (2007)

"The worst movie I've ever reviewed for Dread Central! Yes, I'd even rather sit through Not Dead Enough and Curse of Halloween again than watch Mummy Maniac ever again."

Attack of the 50 Foot Woman (1958)

Behemoth, the Sea Monster (1959)

Trog (1970)

"While not a classic by any stretch of the imagination, Trog is still a damned fine little monster movie and stands proudly as one of the best bad flicks you will ever see!"

Wrestlemaniac (El Mascarado Massacre) (2008)

"It's not a perfect movie and it won't set the horror world on fire; just bloody slammin' fun. Wrestlemaniac is the stuff cult classics are made of."

Blood Mask (2007)
