    Seed of Chucky

    ★★★

    Jennifer Tilly! Ridiculously weak meta-textuality! John Waters! Ed Wood references! A great Shining gag! Puppet kung fu!

    Alien: Greatest Hits. No more please, the franchise has nowhere to go.

    A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2: Freddy's Revenge

    ★★½

    A teenage boy struggles with his own homosexuality. Freddy Krueger turns up for a bit.

    The Editor

    ★★½

    So conflicted with this one. It just doesn't work as a comedy film as it's simply not funny enough. It doesn't really go for a parody of the giallo genre as such, seems to be more concerned with re-doing iconic or famous scenes from particular films (the New York Ripper first scene 'parody' was particularly predictable and less of a parody and more of a Family Guy-style 'hey remember this!"-excuse for a reference). That said, it has an air of authenticity, the performances are fantastic and the ending was great. But completely over the place.
