    Hollywood Mortuary

    Surprisingly watchable with a charismatic central performance channeling the great Glenn Shadix. A strong premise and some fun lo-fi effects make this one of the few SOV horror films worth checking out (though I'd sooner call this a comedy).

    As thematically rich as the best of Romero's work, with a downbeat tone to drive home the thoughtfulness of this piece. There is arguably no other film in his oeuvre that makes a better companion piece to NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, sequels to that film included.

    ★★★★½

    If this doesn't make you a fan of Jeremy Irons, nothing will.

    DEAD RINGERS proves to be one of Cronenberg's best, most thoughtful pieces. He weaves into this yarn a fascinating examination of dependency--both human and substantive--from the point of view of twin brothers (Jeremy Irons). His trademark body horror is still very much present but is hardly the point of this far more psychological tale.

    Bearing the burden of this story is Jeremy Irons doing double duty as Elliot…

    47 Meters Down

    I learned a bunch of stuff about scuba diving and sharks that I didn't know before because every character in this movie is a fountain of factoids hellbent on educating the one ignorant character (and by virtue of that, the audience), but apparently not a single one of these jabronies knew the most basic shit that every little kid knows about getting bit by a shark: punch that motherfucker in the face.

    Also, what's with the aggressive color compositing on that one girl's scuba mask? The CGI sharks didn't look too terrible, but that shit was just distractingly bad.

    Anyway, this movie sucks.
