Backtrace wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be, but it is your run-of-the-mill poorly made direct-to-video flick that will eventually be <$10 level in no time, though you might be missing out on the sweet title-embossed slip cover…

Once Upon a Time in Venice doesn’t quite work either as crime or comedy, but I have to admit to chucking a few times here and there and can appreciate the cast, though the likes of John Goodman and Famke Janssen were underutilized.

The Collection doesn’t have a whole lot going for it outside of the two leads played by Josh Lucas and Emma Fitzpatrick, otherwise the plot is stale, the scares are scarce and the bad guy is pretty bland especially considering we don’t know much about him outside of his killing ways.
