Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation is a film I genuinely do not know if I hated because it was bad or loved because it was batsh*t insane, though I’m currently leaning toward the former.

The Jerk: 40th Anniversary Edition is a fine release from Shout Factory. The movie itself is hilarious and showed why Steven Martin became a big star and for the most part, the jokes did landed.

This Critters Collection is another nicely done work from Shout through their Scream Factory line featuring two solid movies and two… not so good ones. The transfers are all relatively well done and the features packaged together were fantastic.

I suppose there are worse ways to spend 90-minutes than sitting through Critters 4, even if the titular creatures don’t seem to have as much screen time with only two on-screen kills. Of note, though, the inclusions of Angela Bassett and Brad Dourif did make it more interesting.

Critters 3 is a step down from the previous installments but still fun, albeit more seeing Leonardo DiCaprio before he made it internationally huge some years later with Titanic. The rest of the cast were fine and the Critter designs were still impressive.

Critters 2: The Main Course might not be as good as the original, but the humor still mostly worked and I actually enjoyed the interactions between the critter bounty hunters, each of them providing a bit more personality (and seriously, wouldn’t have minded seeing some sort of spin-off).

Critters is a fun first film in the quadrilogy with some really impressive puppetry and animatronic work to go along with just a enjoyable flick from the silly beginning to the even sillier finale.

Streets of Fire is a rare breed of film that features a unique yet familiar style and with some interesting casting choices, two of them brilliant with the young Diane Lane and Willem Dafoe.

Candyman might not be some horror classic in my book, but it was incredible enjoyable with a few good twists with taking it down an unexpected path, at least compared to others in the supernatural-horror subgenre; but what was especially noteworthy were the performances from Madsen and Todd.

Urban Legends: Final Cut was a poorly made horror sequel to a movie that wasn’t all that good, though at least in that case I appreciate the passion behind it, this one seemed to be cooked from numerous producers.

Urban Legend is one of many slasher movies to come out of the late 1990s/early 2000s thanks to the massive success of Scream. I never was a big fan of the movie mainly because I never found it all that scary.
