(** of *****) OMG...what a depressing flick. A couple is unhappy with their lives, the guy loses his job, they get robbed and she ruins a really cute skirt while painting a chair. Wouldn't recommend it.
(* of *****) OMFG...Ray Bradbury was right when he called it 'booooooring'. Bad special effects, glacial pace, overlong (clocking in at about 8 hours spanning all 4 parts), and hammy acting. Not recommended at all.
(**** of *****) One of the most awesome haunted house movies ever. It's a slow-burn chiller, psychological and cerebral. Don't expect jump scares and over-the-top ending. Expect a classy, low-key spookyfest with all of the horror taking place in your mind.
(*** of *****) The GOOD movie version of the TV series...unlike the recent crapfest. Filmed about a year after the TV series ended. It tells the story of the first couple of seasons with a brisk pace. Lots of fun!
(**** of *****) One of my favorites. I missed a midnight screening this weekend because I was too tired. But I had to revisit it anyway. Popped in the Blu-Ray (which is stunning) and sat back for some ax-wielding wintertime goodness!
(**** of *****) Gothic atmosphere abounds. Jean Simmons is an orphaned girl sent to live with her creepy uncle on his creepy country estate. Broken ruins of dark mansions, sealed off rooms, revenge and family treachery done over in glorious black and white. It's a tough one to find, but you won't be disappointed. (aka The Inheritance)
(*** of *****) It's just stupid fun. The dialogue is hammy. It's really not that funny at all. Someone didn't tell the screenwriters that The Book of the Dead isn't a book. But it's a great way to unwind on an afternoon where it's too hot to do anything!
(* of *****) Soooo weird and soooo bad. 4 people are trapped in an elevator with Satan. And everyone was so serious about the predicament. Who knew that Satan was trapped in an elevator in Philadelphia? The deaths were gory. The plot points were predictable. And the ending was random. The only good thing about it was the box cover. Steer clear!
