The Inheritance

Visually slick, even when it’s unimaginative


Horror

Rod Lott
When Image Entertainment splashes its “UNRATED” label across its covers — as it has of late with “Chain Letter,” “Harpoon: Whale Watching Massacre” and now “The Inheritance” — you can at least be guaranteed that the films will make good on that promise, even if they fall short in other areas.

Embodiment of Evil

At midnight, he’ll possess your boredom


Horror

Rod Lott
You don’t have to know who Coffin Joe is to take in “Embodiment of Evil,” but it sure as hell helps — and let’s make that Hell with a capital H.

Scar 3D

More eye-poppingly effective than bigger-budget efforts


Horror

Rod Lott
I don’t know what it is about Angela Bettis, but stick her in a horror movie — doesn’t matter what, “May” or “The Toolbox Murders” — and I’m instantly interested.

Inferno

A gorgeously shot, excellent horror film


Horror

Rod Lott
I'd urge any true cinemaniac to explore the filmography of Dario Argento, whether they like horror or not.

River of Darkness

Of interest to wrestling fans only


Horror

Rod Lott
If you want to see a decent horror film starring a pro wrestler, check out Kane in "See No Evil."

Blood

Something different and decidedly adult.


Horror

Rod Lott
Leave it to Japan to unleash a super-sexy, super-stylish vampire flick that's not your usual entry in a crowded field.

Dark Fields

A fright-free horror movie


Horror

Rod Lott
According to writer/director Douglas Schulze, "Dark Fields" was shot in temperatures that often were below freezing. Why, then, is his film so darned slow?

Stag Night

Lacks ingenuity and suspense


Horror

Rod Lott
In movies, bachelor parties are a recipe for disaster, out of which nothing good comes: “Bachelor Party,” “Stag,” “Very Bad Things.”

Diary of a Madman

Vincent Price makes awesome movies, including this one


Horror

Rod Lott
My love of horror can be traced directly back to the Vincent Price movies that used to litter the weekend schedules of local UHF stations of my childhood.

I Spit on Your Grave (1978/2010)

If it doesn't bother you, there's something wrong with you


Horror

Rod Lott
I can remember distinctly 1980's Very Special Episode of "Sneak Previews," where critics Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert railed against writer/director Meir Zarchi's "I Spit on Your Grave" as a film that was so beyond reprehensible, it shouldn't exist.

Let Me In

Let it into your viewing list


Horror

Rod Lott
Stephen King is prone to exaggeration.

Hatchet II

Readymade for slasher junkies


Horror

Rod Lott
I'll give Adam Green this: He knows all about giving his audience what it wants.

Paranormal Activity 2

Easily better than the first one


Horror

Rod Lott
Surpassing everyone's expectations in theaters last Halloween, "Paranormal Activity 2" is the rare sequel that easily bests its big brother.

Psychosis

A horror/thriller that works


Horror

Rod Lott
When you watch as many movies as I do, it's inevitable that some start to resemble one another in story, even within the same month.

Primal

It could have been a lot crazier


Horror

Rod Lott
I knew there was a good reason I married a brunette. Blondes may have more fun, but they are also more dangerous, as the Australian horror thriller "Primal" shows.
