    What Waits Below

    ★★½

    more an adventure-action movie than a horror, this is an odd little number that suffers from a lack of clarity about what it is.
    This is pretty bloodless adventure with some baddies right out of 80s era Dr Who, but still has enough ideas that i watched the whole thing.

    This is the prime example of a little seen VHS era flick that would actually benefit from an update, an infusion of cash, and 1 or 2 bigger names.

    ★★

    I can look past some seriously questionable stuff (aka the actors in yellow and brown face) in some older flicks, but then when you add tedious pacing (in a film that's only 76 minutes!) to the mix it really kills the deal.
    Fair play, it was a nice looking flick.

    ★★★★

    The best , most scary, thing since, well, ever? Nope. Well shot, nicely crafty, unsettling at times and, yes, scary? Yup.

    Also, for the first 2/3 of the film that little kid was in a dead heat with the girl from Jurassic Park for "Most Annoying Child on Screen Ever".

    ★★★

    I, um,I, hmm, fuck was that?
    I dig it. I think. Like the most sleazy and nasty "tonight in a very special episode" episode of some forgotten 80s sitcom.
