The Void (2017)
Cloaked, cult-like figures trap a police officer (Aaron Poole), patients and staffers inside a hospital that is a gateway to evil.
Thoughts: Hokey and confusing. The practical effects are solid, but the grotesqueries and gruesomeness are, ultimately, more silly than scary.
The Strangers (2008)
A young couple staying in an isolated vacation home are terrorized by three unknown assailants.
Thoughts: Some great suspense and scares in this home invasion thriller that, unfortunately, hinges on the contrived inability to place a 911 call – and the killer’s unlikely confidence that this is the case. P.S. Keep those cell phones charged!
The Loved Ones (2009)
When Brent turns down his classmate Lola’s invitation to the prom, she concocts a wildly violent plan for revenge.
Thoughts: I really wanted to like this one, but its fantastic premise is completely undone by villains so over-the-top that the silliness overwhelms the scares.

My favorite flavor = diesel exhaust!
