Lovely Molly

Good golly, Miss 'Molly'!


Horror

Rod Lott
Another camcorder film? Only in part, but at least Lovely Molly comes from the mind of Eduardo Sánchez, who helped kick-start the craze back on a mainstream scale with 1999's The Blair Witch Project, which he co-wrote and co-directed. So there's that, not to mention this must be the only one scored by avant-garde indie instrumental act Tortoise.

Penumbra

Unlike the filmmakers’ previous thriller, you won’t break a ‘Sweat.’


Thriller

Rod Lott
Penumbra is Spanish for "partly in the shadows," which is how we first find the fourth-floor apartment that Margarita Sanchez (Cristina Brondo, Dario Argento's Do You Like Hitchcock?) shows to Jorge Kepler (Berta Muñiz), representative for a prospective renter willing to pay four times the going rate, and for a full year in advance.

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.

Elevator

Has more ups than downs.


Thriller

Rod Lott
Stop me if this sounds familiar: a handful of people trapped in an elevator, in a life-or-death situation, and one of them is not who he or she seems to be.

The Moth Diaries

Be drawn to its mild flame.


Horror

Rod Lott
Director Mary Harron's The Moth Diaries is a coming-as-age film in the same way her American Psycho was a Wall Street portrait.

Blade Anime

The vampire hunter gets a toothless treatment.


Action

Rod Lott
I love the character of Blade. I love the Blade comic books, starting with his debut in Marvel's Tomb of Dracula in the 1970s. I love all three Blade movies — yes, including that third one. Hell, I even love the short-lived Blade series Spike TV aired in 2006.

One in the Chamber

Relax, it's a blank.


Action

Rod Lott
While it's safe to say Dolph Lundgren will never win an Academy Award, the Expendable's performance in One in the Chamber runs rings around his co-star who did. (To be fair, that Oscar winner is Cuba Gooding Jr., whose statuette the Academy likely wishes it could revoke, but still.)

The Liquidator

Makes a small splash, but you won't die laughing.


Comedy

Rod Lott
One of many spy flicks released amid the height of the 007 craze, 1965's The Liquidator may look and sound like a James Bond imitator — what with a winning animated credits sequence set to a Lalo Schifrin song belted out by Shirley Bassey — but it's actually a spoof, as quickly becomes clear.

Hell

The future’s so bleak, I gotta wear shades.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Cinema’s current master of disaster, Roland Emmerich (2012), produced but did not write or direct Hell, a post- apocalyptic film smaller in scope than what the man is used to, yet better crafted.
