    Evils of the Night

    ★½

    Oh dear. What a mess. Doubly sad, when the poster is so cool. The premise isn't half bad either. A bunch of aliens have taken over a hospital, where they're draining the blood of young hot-blooded teenagers. Some local yokels are responsible for abducting the youngsters and delivering to the aliens, but they keep messing up. The bodies are too mangled or not fresh enough. And not just that...the mission is almost over and time is running out.

Luckily there's a mole in the syndicate, Irma...and even luckier, the 3" tall Weng or agent OO (double-oh) is on the case. Armed with the latest in high-tech crime-fighting gadgetry and a bit of…

    Teachers

    ★★★★

    What a cast! Nick Nolte as the disillusioned teacher and Ralph Macchio, Laura Dern and Crispin Glover as the troublemaking kids. Add a sprinkle of awesomeness with Morgan Freeman as a lawyer and Richard Mulligan as a fraudulent teacher stand-in and you have a hell of a movie.

    Alex Jurel has lost the fire that made him become a teacher in the first place and now it's just another job. But when the school is sued after letting an illiterate…
