Level 16 doesn’t feel like the most original sci-fi(ish) thriller but I did like some of the atmosphere writer-director Danishka Esterhazy brought to the table and the performances from Katie Douglas and Celina Martin were both impressive.
The Big Clock is a fun 1940s film noir-esque thriller that actually would probably play well today as it did then. The acting is fairly good, Ray Milland especially, and features a compelling and suspense-filled story.
Becoming Evil: Serial Killers isn’t all that well put together documentary series, in fact comes across as a bit cheap, but with the explosion of true crime that has elevated Investigative Discovery, A&E and Lifetime.
Bonanza: Season Nine is a fine enough season but as someone who isn’t the biggest fan of westerns in general and haven’t really cared enough about the show to keep up over the course of nine seasons, but the restoration work from CBS was well done.
Alien is of course a sci-fi/horror classic and obviously a cash cow for the studio with numerous re-releases on various formats and now it has come to 4K UHD and it does look excellent and ported over an already great lossless track.
Imagine a movie called The Suckling wasn’t very good, even in the age old so bad, it’s good. The acting is poor and story non-existent but I suppose for your indie horror purists, you might get something out of this.
Admittedly these supernatural-horror movies aren’t generally my thing and Superstition is no different and despite some okay performances and the filmmakers doing the best they can with a thin script, this is not even close to be worthy of a rental.
By no means am I an expert on the monster horror subgenre and have enjoyed a few of the classics like Frankenstein and The Mummy, Frankenstein 1970 had a fun and unique premise, the execution was rather bad.
