Final Destination 5

‘Final Destination 5’ has plenty of blood and nearly no brains. But as long as you know that …


Horror

Last summer, the fourth “Final Destination” movie swapped a numeral for a definitive article, because producers figured the franchise had run its course. Then “The Final Destination” made $181 million worldwide, so this summer, we have another chapter, and the numbering system has been reinstated.

Bad Dreams / Visiting Hours

Mental hospitals, regular hospitals — is no place safe?


Horror

Rod Lott
Earlier this summer, I read a book about the history of slasher movies, and kept a list as I went along of movies I've somehow managed not to see. As if by sheer coincidence, Shout! Factory plops two of them together in one "Killer Double Feature": 1988's "Bad Dreams" and 1982's "Visiting Hours," each on their own disc.

Chromeskull: Laid to Rest 2

It slices, it dices, it twices!


Horror

Rod Lott
Underwhelming on first viewing, 2009's "Laid to Rest" has grown on me. Robert Hall's attempt at creating a new horror icon in Chromeskull was a committed one, if not exactly valiant. Ditto for the sequel, which graduates the slasher to top-of-title prominence, "ChromeSkull: Laid to Rest 2."
