The Meg (2013)

A group of scientists exploring the Marianas Trench encounter the largest marine predator that has ever existed – the Megalodon.

My thoughts: Cheesy fun heavy on the cheese and light on the fun.


Saint Maud (2019)

A pious nurse becomes dangerously obsessed with saving the soul of her dying patient.

My thoughts: Terrific performances but not much depth to either character or story. Pretty much goes exactly as you expect it to.


Crawl (2019)

A young woman, while attempting to save her father during a category 5 hurricane, finds herself trapped in a flooding house and must fight for her life against alligators.

My thoughts: The dialogue is occasionally hokey, but the direction is first-rate in this taut, suspenseful aquatic thriller. A popcorn movie done right.


Shrew’s Nest (2014)

1950s Madrid: The agoraphobic Montse raised her now 18 y.o. kid sister. The upstairs neighbor falls down the stairs and breaks a leg. The crazy Montse takes him in.

My thoughts: Although at times it has the feel of an overwrought Spanish version of Misery, the ending is delightfully horrific and shocking.


Trick ‘r Treat (2003)

Five interwoven stories that occur on Halloween.

My thoughts: At times clever and creepy; at times scattered and silly. Still, one of the better horror anthologies.
