    The Wait

    ★★★

    Writer/director F. Javier Gutiérrez (After the Fall, Rings) returned to his native Spain to make his third film La Espera, or, in English, The Wait. It’s a title that refers not just to the passage of time but to the ten hunting stands on the estate of Don Francisco (Pedro Casablanc, Phenomena, Under Her Control). They are watched over by Eladio (Víctor Clavijo, Vampus Horror Tales, The Ministry of Time), who lives on the remote property with his wife Marcia…

    Pet Sematary: Bloodlines

    ★★★½

    The film proper opens with a man hanging himself. As soon as he’s dead another man…

    The Prototype

    ★★★

    Some time in the future Tony (Juan Antonio Devoto, Dead Badge, First Law) flies out into the desert looking for something known as The Prototype. Once he locates it and digs it up it turns out to be Garrett Brown (Mark Vasconcellos, Aliens from Uranus, Lady Belladonna’s Night Shades).

    He’s been buried in a life sustaining pod for over three hundred years, even sleeping through a nuclear war. He’s just managing to get a grip on this, and the fact…
