Think about a really funny joke you were told. Would you like it as much if the setup were thrice as long as the punch line required?

The Disco Exorcist

Beelzeboobs.


Comedy

Rod Lott

A title like The Disco Exorcist just screams, “Why wasn’t this part of Grindhouse?"

The Barrens

Something in Jersey is more demonic than Snooki.


Horror

Rod Lott
In a post-Saw world, Darren Lynn Bousman quietly has been making a series of horror films more in line with scary movies of the 1970s than the torture-porn genre he helped usher in. Already this year, DVD has brought us his superlative Mother's Day remake and the low-key demonic pic 11-11-11, and now The Barrens. It's just too bad they've all been denied wide theatrical releases.

Back from Hell

'Hell' is hell.


Horror

Rod Lott
This being the Halloween season, odds are many a found-footage film will be watched over the next several weeks. How to choose between so many? Allow me to help ever so slightly: Steer clear of Back from Hell.

Doomsday Book

The end of the world is two-thirds terrific.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Not based on Connie Willis' seminal sci-fi novel of the same name, Doomsday Book is preoccupied not with time travel, but the world's end. Telling three separate stories, the Korean film comes from acclaimed directors Kim Jee-woon (I Saw the Devil) and Yim Pil-sung (Hansel & Gretel). As with all anthologies, results vary; ultimately, this one ends up as two-thirds great.

This Is the End

If only that were true ...


Comedy

Louis Fowler
To me, few things are as annoying as being stuck in a conversation with a group of stoners who’ve spent most of the day tokin’ it up.

The Last Exorcism Part II

What possessed them?


Horror

Rod Lott
Unlike many moviegoers, 17-year-old farm girl Nell Sweetzer (Ashley Bell, The Day) has no memory of the events of The Last Exorcism, a found-footage smash of three years prior. The Last Exorcism Part II finds her taking steps to build life anew, beginning in a boarding house for troubled girls, where the deeply devout Nell is exposed to such heretofore corrupting influences as lipstick and rock music and YouTube and cotton candy.

The Monk

I vow that it’s a gem.


Thriller

Rod Lott
For several years, I’ve intended to read Matthew G. Lewis' 1796 novel, The Monk. I even bought a snazzy trade-paperback edition with an introduction from Stephen King. Never got around to cracking it open.

Black Devil Doll from Hell / Tales from the Quadead Zone

Must be seen to be believed.


Horror

Rod Lott
Thanks to Massacre Video, the films of Chester Novell Turner are preserved for future generations, no longer in danger of disappearing as VHS tape deteriorates with age.
