(2014) Cooties

This was pretty funny, nothing hilarious but nothing I truly hated either. Story is obviously played out, somewhat intentionally.

It has insane star power though, I’m surprised I didn’t hear of it earlier.

(2002) Eight Legged Freaks

This was kind of an odd success in my mind. The plot is so cliche that it almost works to its benefit. The somewhat-shitty CGI combined with spider roars, tucked in under a blanket of nonsense leeds me to believe it’s all intentional.

It’s fun, albeit limited in certain aspects but I dug it.

(2000) Leprechaun in the Hood

I actually think this might be my least favorite of the bunch, which is strange, being that it’s the only one I ever hear talked about.

I just kind of think the humor is a bit too slapstick-y. It’s not that I hate that style but it doesn’t really aline with the humor of the past films which was achieved through sheer absurdity. There’s way less body horror too.

It’s aight.

Nah it’s pretty bad.

(2018) Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell

Lmao I’m pretty sure this was filmed in the desert. It’s not unwatchable by any means, I think it fits nicely in the series which, let’s be honest, is a guilty pleasure.

Not that I feel guilty liking Tremors, just like, yeah. You know what the fuck I’m trying to say. It’s terrible but awesome.

The premise to this particular entry is so retarded, it’s great.

(1987) Near Dark

Kathryn Bigelow is such a versatile director. It’s hard to believe this is the same woman who directed The Hurt Locker but then again, she doesn’t shy from explosions.

Near Dark is just awesome. These vampires are the outlaws of the 80’s. It initially has a very similar vibe to The Lost Boys but adds a ton more grit. The effects are all incredible and really just continue to amplify all the way until the finale.

It’s a great vampire film.

(2018) Deep Blue Sea 2

As my girlfriend pointed out, the most hilarious thing about this movie is the fact that it’s a sequel to a decade old, already shitty film that no one asked for.

This movie definitely dips its toes in the so-bad-it’s-good territory but only if you’re half paying attention.

It’s pretty awful.

1.5/10

(1993) Run and Kill

This is a really solid Hong Kong gang thriller that, while cheesy and funny, is also extremely brutal.

The film’s pacing is really its best aspect, getting steadily more violent and less funny as it progresses. Coupled with a pretty great score, I’d definitely recommend this to someone looking for a violent thriller.
