Morak, The Destroyer!

Oh dear, where to begin? I laughed pretty hard with that sequence where the guy’s about to commit suicide and then calls it off because he’s running late for work. But this film is not a comedy. It’s an alledged shock feature that seems to start off as a tame rape/revenge kind of deal, but very quickly heads off in a slightly more supernatural direction, doing anything but firmly pedalling along. And like any child learning how to ride a bicycle can tell you; when you loose pedals and fall on your ass, it hurts.

Class Reunion Massacre

By the doubling of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes.

From a dark lake filling the bottom of an abandoned quarry rises a little boy (Christopher Flint) who then catches a bus.

While a group of jerkoffs at a high-school reunion getting bumped off isn’t entirely original, this one tries to be something different by having the killer be something far from the norm…. (more…)
