    The Damned

    ★★★★½

    The Damned is such a unique film as Visconti does not pamper the more sensitive viewers, and neither does the Germans in his story. These people are as ugly as their lives and putty only makes things worse. Helmut Berger's disturbed Martin von Essenbeck is the film's finest role. Like Martin, Dirt Bogarden's silent, Friedrich Bruckmann, also appears believably, among the female actors, Charlotte Rampling, gives the most authentic performance.

    Very good film and bordering on a classic.

    Crawl

    ★★★½

    It's good that decent creature features are still being made every once in a while. That being said, it's a rather nice creature feature with a shockingly good tension throughout and Kaya Scodelario oozing star power. They've set the story interestingly enough, flood aspect works as much as a tension builder than the alligators, alligators themselves look good as well as the CGI isn't poorly made at all, we're even treated with a couple cool looking kill scenes.

    This was an enjoyable film where tension is been hit at the correct time.

    Frankenstein

    ★★★★

    Coming out around the same time as Dracula but unlike that film, this contains less elements of horror and instead more explores the human mind. It's more mystical and multidimensional, as well as superior in its actors. Not to compare the two but Dracula had more of a mediocre cast accompanying the charismatic Lugosi, while this one has more emphasis put on the supporting actors as well. Star of the show here is Boris Karloff, who plays the Frankenstein Monster…

    The Hills Have Eyes

    ★★★½

    This was as entertaining as the original and some of that was due to the similar pace. Things were given time to breathe in the beginning until they turned it up once the cannibals appeared to torment the campers. Good enough remake here, though it didn't have any major differences compared to the original.
