A small group are chosen to go on a Scientology-like retreat. Once at the location, the attendees are directed to only consume the food given to them, but first drink specially formulated shakes in order to start the spiritual healing process. This healing process includes vomiting up a physical-manifestation of their toxic feelings. Mostly dull and a very short film, the portion with Oliver Platt stood out as the funniest.
An American salesman in London meets a young woman in London and he immediately falls for her. She has to return to her family home in the countryside, but he surprises her there a few days later in order to ask for permission to marry her. The family is made up of very eccentric folk including a vampyric cousin and a mad scientist uncle. Over the days he stays with the family more and more members are being killed, yet no one knows by whom. This takes a lot of its story from the plot of The Old Dark House. Pat Boone was great, but I didn't enjoy the twist ending.
An insurance investigator visits a mansion after being invited to investigate a strange rug burning. After a discussion with the family, it is decided these seemingly ghostly goings-on which include the family pictures being turned sideways and an attempt to set a rug alight. The teenage girl who resides there was banned from her school for acting out, which her parents attribute to being possessed by a demon. A psychic investigator arrives and attempts to exorcise the poltergeist with his ghost-busting equipment. Comedic, yet not very funny, horror-themed, yet not very scary. This was "meh" when compared with better comedy-horrors of the era (e.g. King of the Zombies, Spooks Run Wild, Spook Busters, the Abbott and Costello films, etc.).
The newest entry in the pantheon of Scooby-Doo straight-to-DVD animated films features most of the current recurring voices as the main cast along with Cassandra Peterson as Elvira, Mistress of the Dark and Bill Nye as they team together to save Crystal Cove. Despite the standout-cast, the voice actor playing the sheriff, David Herman who sounded EXACTLY like when he plays Mr. Phillip Frond, offered the most laughs and frights. Overall, the film is not a very good entry when compared to the SD library; the most redeeming characteristics of this one are Frond 2.0 and Daphne's interactions with Elvira. This movie pairs with Scooby-Doo! and the Goblin King and Scooby-Doo! and KISS: Rock and Roll Mystery for Halloween-themed SD films.
Yet another iteration of the Addam's Family, this time done in so-so 3-D animation. The titular family moves to a very bright and charming small town full of residents who fully plan on keeping their culture intact. The Addams threaten to bring more of their (Tatar/Sudeten/Castilian/Jewish?) relatives to the town which in turn brings pushback from the townsfolk. The Addams' are dealing with their own internal battles such as correcting junior high age Wednesday from wearing pink and unicorns while Pugly learns the the Mamushka, an Addams family tradition since forever. My younger daughter enjoyed it more than either I or my older.
