In a little town in the little country of Island, ashen-covered people begin appearing.

Pretty cool.

I don't know if there will be more; I'll check back in, in a couple of years.

A lovely couple move to a lovely town, have trouble with a couple of yuppies, and strike a deal to get rid of them.

A fast-paced, great movie. Not horror, and not comedy, just quality bubblegum. It's worth a watch once, but in my mind it's not good enough to be a "classic".

A man is robbed and unintentionally killed on the way home from the theater, and trains to become an avenger for justice.

This is somehow not an alternate Batman origin story. Although it's intentionally slow-paced in a lot of places to draw out the emotion, it is quite nice; recommended.

Something about the end of the world.

Flashy and trashy.

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.

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 movie), 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.

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

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.
