A team investigates the killing of genetics researchers by their secret laboratory's artificial intelligence, learning it had a good reason to do so.

Quite good, even after its era. It does not show much age except for one monster. This movie headed the resurrection of the zombie movie sub-genre.

TODO - To watch with commentary and all the bonus material.

This has no relation to The Mummy - (1999 movie).

An antiquities reclamation rogue discovers an ancient Egyptian prison, and becomes an unwilling agent for the curse within.

At best this is an adequate movie. I could weakly recommend it for fans of this sub-genre, but otherwise give it a miss. It has a budget that's stronger than its writing or acting.

In a forest where any who die rise as zombies, an escaped convict does something something.

I got 1/3 in and got bored. It's too over-the-top.

Two friends go on vacation, with one of them seriously ill and possibly dying, but a new illness progresses.

How do I describe this without spoiling it? I know a lot of people don't like found-footage movies, but this one is quite good as it actually shows everything.

An archaeologist seeks an ancient Egyptian amulet to gain godlike powers.

A great fan film. I wish I had a better source than the 240p on YouTube, but I didn't actually look around at all.

This is a steaming pile of shit. Do not watch it!

Having fallen from grace, two friends are reunited in their pursuit of ghosts, eventually forming a band of four who fight them. And stuff.

This is neither a sequel to the actual Ghostbusters (1984), nor is it anything in its style or quality. It's just a theft of the franchise. It shits all over it. Ignoring all of that, it's still an awful movie on its own.

This is not a comedy! Don't mistake it for one! The only funny scene had nothing to do with the main characters.

Evil returns to find Ash.

Playful. It is clearly capitalizing on the success of the franchise, but it's not really interesting to me, as though it's stretching out the story ideas. It's okay, though not especially recommended. I watched a bit of it, but I'd rather do other things with my life.

Facing hard times, the Ghostbusters are called back into action when the city's mood dips deep into anger.

Definitely not as good as Ghostbusters (1984), but an adequate film nonetheless.

Failed scientists begin a ghost capturing service, and the need for their services grows, threatening all of New York city.

I don't have a lot of movies anything like this which I could consider listing as mandatory, so this one gets in pretty easily.

A group of friends visits a cabin in the woods, where research on The Necronomicon was recently done and has possessed the area.

I hate hate hate horror movies, but this kindof isn't one. This is absolutely mandatory viewing.
