LA FORTEZZA È evidente che dietro alla macchina da presa non ci fosse uno sprovveduto: nonostante fosse al suo secondo lungometraggio, Mann mostrava già una grande personalità; peccato, invece, per la sceneggiatura che sembra un colabrodo. A questo punto, le possibili spiegazioni sono due: 1) la produzione impose tagli critici per contenere i tempi; 2) meglio non pensarci. RSVP: “The Devil’s Rock”, “The Bunker”. Voto: 5/6.

Maniac Cop 1988 A clever twist on the usual slasher tropes & a nice detective mystery mix to make a run of the mill entry a bit a cut above. Throw in a couple of nice performances from 80′s staple Tom Atkins & Bruce Campbell and this late 80′s cheese-ball gains a bit more legs. A bit light on the bloody bits & a missed opportunity delivering on the killer’s origin story drag it down but all in all not a bad slasher flick. That seems to be the problem. Its not a bad but its just not great…

Silent Night Deadly Night’s 1984 crime is that it just feels dull. There is no tension created nor suspense built. This is the kind of movie that you find yourself glancing at the clock quite a bit. The film is not terrible because I have seen worse but its pretty close to terrible. I remember seeing this film back in the day & I felt it was dull then. Seeing it now has not changed my view of the film. Its just plain dull. I love 80's Horror & films from the 80's but this one just falls…

Munger Road is a good film or at least I thoroughly enjoyed it except for the way the film was ended. Nicholas Smith is someone that genre fans should keep their eyes on because it will be very interesting to see what he delivers next beyond Munger Road. I would tell your that Munger Road is a good film and that you should seek it out but I would warn you that the ending will make some feel cheated. I felt that way but I did enjoy this throwback Slasher, its just that I missed the slashing.

Werewolf: The Beast Among Us 2012 I am not saying that it is a great film. It definitely does not reach the level of Dog Soldiers but it is fun enough to hold your interest for 90 minutes. Serviceable acting, moderate bloody bits, well crafted story elements that create mystery & engage the viewer & a teasing of the werewolf creature until the end all work together to make a nice little monster flick that should scratch the werewolf itch. Don’t expect to much & you should enjoy this film.

The Cottage 2008 The film manages to develop a relationship between two brothers at odds that care about one another. By the end of the film I too cared about the brothers. I did not want  them harmed which is a plus because the pair get themselves into so much life threatening danger that it helps the film that they engender sympathy. I normally would argue that I love bleak endings but here I would go against myself. The ending is bleak. The fact that I was so invested is a credit to the…
