    Tales from the Darkside: The Movie

    ★★★½

    A cheeseboard of campy horror shorts that inevitably end up feeling rushed and under-developed, with a TV movie budget that makes it hard to pull of anything too visually striking. That said there's clear effort despite limited resources on display and I found it endearing.
    The "book-end" story that frames all the shorts is pretty fun, ending on an very stupid joke that none-the-less has great timing and execution.

    The Transformers: The Movie

    ★★★½

    That extra "The" at the start of the title makes it awkward as hell to say out loud, try it.

    Death Trench

    ★★★½

    A wartime zombie film dropped onto the DVD aisle a month or so after Overlord was a hit, huh?
    I'm being facetious; despite the blatant case sleeve design, this is a much more understated affair. The emphasis being on claustrophobic dark tunnels, the threat thereof occasionally reiterated with some uniquely executed gore scenes; the gimmick of how these zombies are made is squirmy.
    There are some anachronisms with how the Germans are basically just Nazis despite it being world war 1, but overall a tolerable film if not the most memorable one. Good filler material for a horror movie night.

    We're never gonna survive, unless we get a little crazy.
