Dark Tide

Just when you thought it was safe to watch a Halle Berry movie.


Thriller

Rod Lott
I'm glad that Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez found love on the set, because that makes Dark Tide not a total loss. Otherwise, this big-budget, theater-skipping adventure is perhaps the most toothless shark movie ever made, and remember, I've sat through Dinoshark and Sharktopus.

Jersey Shore Shark Attack

Goombahs and gore galore.


Comedy

Rod Lott
With one of those titles that doubles as a story summary, Jersey Shore Shark Attack is the rare made-for-Syfy film that has more to it than said title.

247˚F

Nowhere near as hot as it thinks.


Thriller

Rod Lott
247˚F is as compelling as you'd think about a movie set almost entirely in a sauna would be: not at all, once you think about it. I'm all for films set in single and/or small spaces, but this one has nowhere to go.

Rites of Passage

Wrongs make 'Rites.'


Thriller

Rod Lott
Rites of Passage's box art of boring actors’ faces should switch with the illustration adorning the actual disc: a play on the ol' skull and crossbones logo, but using a sock monkey and shotguns. That's what convinced me the film might be worth its 102 minutes. Ultimately, it's not, but its first half makes for an interesting mess.

The Phynx

Phar-out, phunny, phreaky stuff.


Comedy

Rod Lott
If movies could be drug-tested, The Phynx would be in big trouble. The 1970 comedy is not just an obscurity, but an oddity, like a hallucinogenic brew mixed by Peter Max and Hanna-Barbera. Newly rescued from Nowheresville by Warner Archive, the film is a spy spoof on the goofball level of Get Smart — in spirit, that is, not creatively.

Rudyard Kipling's Mark of the Beast

It's no beauty.


Horror

Rod Lott
Rudyard Kipling's Mark of the Beast is unlike any film I’ve ever seen. Before that works you into frenzied anticipation, please note that’s only because it has the most convoluted DVD menu in history.

Dead in France

Parlez-vous Tarantino?


Comedy

Rod Lott
In case there were any question, Dead in France is a black comedy. Take the opening scene, for instance, in which a man takes a fatal fall from a cliff, but not before hitting his head on the rocks several times during the trip, grunting a painful “Oof!” with each knock to the noggin.
