    The Greasy Strangler

    ★★★★½

    I loved this film before I'd even seen it. The trailer alone gave me so much joy, to the point that I couldn't stop laughing for at least 13 minutes after seeing it. I was almost apprehensive that the movie itself wouldn't live up to that.

    Zach Snyder continues his downward trajectory from promising young director to new Michael Bay, proving once again that Dawn of the Dead is his best film to date. He manages to deliver another stodgy, loud, unsatisfying, boring missed…
