    Hellraiser: Hellseeker

    ★★

    This is either better than Inferno because it doesn’t have the abysmally awful Craig Sheffer performance, or it’s worse because it doesn’t have the fantastically awful Craig Sheffer performance, I can’t tell which. I think the former, but who can really know when both films are this shitty?

    Willy's Wonderland

    ★★★

    Watching Willy’s Wonderland is kind of like listening to Whitesnake’s 1987 self-titled record. First off, you’ve made a choice, and you just have to stand by it. Most of the record is undeniable shit, and when songs like “Bad Boys” and “Looking For Love” are playing you sheepishly slide down in your seat (because obviously you’re in your car), turn the volume down, and look around to make sure no one is watching. But then when “Still of the Night”…
