    The Bay

    ★★★½

    The Bay, while flawed, shows significant potential for the as of yet largely untapped subgenre of mockumentary horror-thrillers, and makes use of what some may call a "gimmick" for some truly effective tension. Levinson got the ball rolling here, and although this film flopped, I think he's on to something.

    Saving Christmas

    ½

    Oh my God, what more to say about Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas then... amazingly, unbelievably horrid, but amazingly, incredibly entertaining as hell.

    Dear Kirk Cameron,

    Please, PLEASE make more movies. I will see every single one. Opening night.

    Signed,

  • Fright Night

    Fright Night

    ★★★★

    A surprisingly solid vampire horror-comedy flick from the 80's, Fright Night impresses with it's good cinematography, haunting atmosphere, and great unique take on the vampire genre.

    This movie benefits from it's solid cast, including an excellent performance from lead actor Chris Sarandon (Dog Day Afternoon, Child's Play). I found the plot to be entertaining and enjoyable, and gives you a different take on vampires, that they are masquerading as just normal people, living among us.

    The movie deftly avoids many horror cliches and provides some solid action and some great comedic moments, and although has a few issues in pacing definitely provides an entertaining film.
