    💀👻🎃 61 Days of Horror 🎃👻💀

    One of those films where you like the pieces more than the pie.

    "Road horror" is a fun sub-genre, and this seems like it had a pretty sizeable impact on the similar-but-better The Hitcher (1986).

    Stacy Keach is probably the best part of the film, his charm and presence somewhat making up for the just-OK script and meandering, semi-dull plot.

    I say "somewhat" because ultimately this is just too empty throughout, without enough actual…

    In Too Deep

    When LL Cool J's performance is the strongest part of your film, there's a problem.

    And he is actually good here, despite more or less emulating Robert De Niro's Al Capone in The Untouchables (1987), right down to the spurts of near-cartoonishly over-the-top violence between his fronted faux-businessman persona.

    This movie takes TWO AND A HALF HOURS to tell a story that could've been done in 80 minutes.

    The worst part is that roughly 75% of this is characters standing around talking to each other about what just…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I don't think this is necessarily an outright bad film, but what the fuck is the point here?

    Is the point that war is hell? If so, this is obvious to everyone already. Films like Saving Private Ryan (1998) or We Were Soldiers (2002) depict the visual atrocity and gut-wrenching fear, pain, and confusion of soldiers much more viscerally and accurately. This is a bleached, PG-13 affair that seems content to shy away from the blood, the burning corpses, and the horrifically and…
