4-0 out of 5 stars LONG HARD CLIMB
THE CORPORATE LADDER is a Playboy Channel movie, filled with pseudo-erotica and some beautiful women. John Anthony Denison (Crime Story) plays Matt, an up and coming advertising executive, on the brink of a major ad promotion contract with a jeans company. In steps his new assistant, Kathleen Kinmont, whose take charge attitude and imagination, win the deal for him. Of course, Kinmont has more than her career in mind: she wants Mark. Mark, of course, is married to lovely Talisa Soto, who is also pregnant. But lust wins over and Matt does engage in an affair with Kinmont. As in THE TEMP and FATAL ATTRACTION, this relationship can only be deadly---from the movie's opening sequence, we pretty much know who Kinmont really is.
Add seedy Ben Cross as Matt's associate/rival who coerces his women to have sex with him to "advance their careers" and the setup is constructed for the movie's obvious ending.
Cross' performance is so over the top; he has three scenes in his pool where the dialogue is exactly the same; only the third one elicits a different response from his victim.
The movie downplays morality in its own subtle ways; sure Dennison feels guilty for what he does but he's constantly tempted and ruled by his third leg. A friend of his (played by director Nick Longovella) tells him that he's gone through a divorce after telling his wife about his affair; he tells Denison not to tell the truth; his wife's better off not knowing.
The acting is good: Kinmont has the vulnerability and the venom to carry off her role; Denison is middle-aged studly and stoic; and it's nice to see Jennifer O'Neill again, even if she has little to do.
This is one of those almost erotic movies, that does sustain interest, and it is well done.

4-0 out of 5 stars Tastefully Sexy, Exciting, Engages Mind on Values!
The Corporate Ladder is one of the most interesting movies I have ever seen. The only thing that it lacks is some big name stars. It has just about everyhting you could want in a sexy exciting movie: Interesting characters, well played, tasteful and exciting love scenes, mystery, plot, intrigue.

On the "high mided" side, it presents the viewer with a moral question faced by so many. How to handle infidelity -- and if to tell the truth and "be honest," or if to lie but "protect the feelings" of the spouse.

This movie is about an executive on his way up the corporate ladder. He is married and has a family. He also has a very bright, beautiful, sensual co-worker. They work on projects together in synergy and, over time, a deep meaningful bond develops between them. They can hardly keep their work synergy from becoming a hot personal attraction -- leading to an incredible torrid love scene on top of his desk.

This movie not only entertains, it causes one to ponder. It not only excites, it presents morality. A wonderful experiece to watch if you are the type who likes all sides of you to be involves in the movie experience.

5-0 out of 5 stars Welcome home, Michael
Halloween 4 is a terrific entry in the best slasher series of all time. While it doesn't have quite the all-pervading atmosphere, suspense, and general gloom and doom of the incomparable original, it more than lives up to the Halloween tradition. To me, the key to this movie's success is the acting talent of both Donald Pleasance (Dr. Loomis) and young newcomer Danielle Harris (Michael's niece Jamey). Disfigured from his encounter with Michael ten years earlier, Dr. Loomis strides through this movie as the avenging hero he is, having to convince foolish minds that Michael has returned home to wreak havoc yet again. Of course, you can blame a couple of paramedics for tipping Michael off that he still has a living relative, namely his sister Laurie's little girl Jamie (Laurie has supposedly died in an accident a year earlier). After Michael is transferred out from under Loomis' nose, he naturally escapes and begins leaving a trail of bodies on his way to Haddonfield. Loomis is right behind him, intent on saving the little girl from her evil uncle. The young Danielle Harris gives an incredible performance for someone so young, conveying emotion and fear quite convincingly. After this movie came out, I remember hearing some criticism of terrorizing such a young person in this type of horror atmosphere, and Harris spoke quite eloquently on the subject from her perspective. She brings to this movie talent well beyond her years.

Surprisingly, this movie is not altogether that graphic. We rarely get to see the actual coup de grace of each killing (and in a couple of cases we don't even see the actual murder), and even the remains of the slain never exhibit much blood loss. Of course, Michael uses a variety of means (including his bare hands) to murder his victims here. I for one missed the guy's trademark knifings. He does get hold of a knife eventually, but, sadly, he doesn't get much of a chance to use it. As for Michael himself, it is easy to see that the man behind the mask is not the original "shape" Nick Castle. George P. Wilbur has a slightly different build, and he just doesn't have the malevolent presence Castle possessed. He is strong in the category of standing still and watching from the shadows, but he is a little awkward in his movements and often seems to be patterning them on those of King Kong.

This movie has some really nice touches to it, several that strongly call to mind pivotal scenes from the original. Another master stroke is the conclusion, which certainly surprised me when I first saw it. Far too often a trite ending can ruin one's impression of an otherwise good horror movie, but Halloween 4 offers evidence of how much a terrific ending can increase one's enjoyment of an already satisfying experience. By inserting a whole new chapter in the Michael Myers saga, Halloween 4 actually injected the series with newfound life (and blood); it certainly excited me as a fan, and that is something that most sequels of sequels simply do not do.

4-0 out of 5 stars Michael's Return Is Very Welcome
Halloween 4 came 6 years after the mistake that was the shapeless Halloween 3. Part 4, while a usual slasher film, is quite good and effective. It's a worthy follow up to Part 2(maybe even better than 2)and a nice continuation piece. Michael Myers escapes from a mental institution and heads back to Haddonfield to track down his niece Jamie LLoyd, who is Laurie Strode's daughter. Donald Pleasence returns as Dr. Loomis. He is even better here than he was in the first two. He's more mad. More driven. Danielle Harris, as Jamie, is an extraordinary actress for her age. She is very, very believeable. You cry and root for her. She is very good. One of the best heroines in horror films in years. Michael himself is still quite scary. The mask is totally different. That's because he lost his old one in the fire. George Wilbur is a truly frightening image of Michael Myers. Ellie Cornell, as Rachel, is a beauty to look at. Her performance is routine, but good. Sasha Jenson, as Brady, is just there as eye candy for the girls. Nothing new. The film is sharp and tight, and has a great look and feel to it. The only thing that sort of ruined the mystique of Michael Myers was how he turned into a killing machine with some savage murders. Michael doesn't do that. They could've toned that part down. In the end, this is a solid and entertaining follow-up to the previous two. It all went down hill from here until H20.

4-0 out of 5 stars He's Back!!! - "HALLOWEEN 4 - THE RETURN OF MICHAEL MYERS"
GREAT!

After the horrible Halloween III - Season of the Witch (1983), this series needed a jump-start. This is what it got. Carpenter is gone from the series but Moustapha Akkad (master of the Halloween franchise) manages to put forth a solid film. Picking up ten years after the Haddonfield incident, Halloween 4 follows "the shape", masked-maniacle killer Michael Myers, as he terrorizes his young niece, Jamie Lloyd (Danielle Harris). Jamie is the daugher of the now-deceased Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis). Also in the movie is Dr. Sam Loomis, again played by the wonderful Donald Pleasance. Pleasance gives his usual top-notch performance as the doctor who forsaw the horror. If you're looking for something good to watch, give Halloween 4: The Revenge of Michael Myers a chance. It is definitely one of the better sequels.

1-0 out of 5 stars This movie was lame!
Are all you people nuts? This was a very weak film. If John Carpenter is not involved in the writing or directing then don't buy a Halloween film. I and II are pretty much where the quality was. H20 was the best attempt since and that was like film # 7

5-0 out of 5 stars Michael Myers Returns with a classic- HALLOWEEN 4 Rocks
If you thought the nightmare was over- you were DEAD wrong. Michael Myers is alive and well, and coming back to Haddonfield in "Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers", the fourth installment to the "Halloween" series and the third appearance of the sadistic Michael Myers. Without a doubt, "Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers" is the best "Halloween" sequel. It is just almost as good as the original in so many ways. "Halloween 4" sticks to a simple formula of the original but doesn't copy, it is well acted and direcred, and it is scary as they come. Halloween has returned to Haddonfield, and HE has come home... again.
First, "Halloween 4" stays with a simple, chilling story like the original "Halloween" but does not completely copy the film. It is hard for sequels to not stray too far from the series basics or not to just completely rewrite the original. Many series, such as "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "Friday the 13th", and "A Nightmare on Elm Street" tend to get repetative with their many sequels. "Halloween" however finds something new to add into the mix. Here, in "Halloween 4", the babysitter's nightmare comes true again. It's been ten years since Michael Myers killed 16 people until finally being stopped by Dr. Sam Loomis (Donald Pleasance). Myers and Loomis were both burned nearly to death, but they both lived, with Loomis gaining a limp and Myers being put into a coma. In those ten years, Lourie Strode has died with her husband Jimmy (from "Halloween II") in a car accident and left their daughter, Jamie (Danielle Harris) behind. Jamie has just arrived in a foster family under the care of the Curruthers', with Rachel Curruthers (Ellie Cornell) as her foster sister. Jamie has lived in fear of her uncle Michael waking up, but she hasn't had to worry... until now. While being transported to a different hospital, Michael awakes from his coma and brutally escapes, heading back to Haddonfield. No believes Loomis (again) that Myers is alive and heading to Haddonfield, but they are proven wrong when he arrives there, on Halloween night, and goes after little Jamie, plus anyone who gets in his way. Now this may sound like the original a bit, but the difference comes when this time Haddonfield is prepared for Myers, and when Loomis comes and warns Sheriff Meeker (Beau Starr, who has replaced Charles Cyphers as the Sheriff of Haddonfield), Haddonfield citizens and police get ready, but how is anyone safe. Meanwhie, Rachel has been assigned to take Jamie trick-or-treating, and soon enough, she looses her. Different twist from "Halloween" when Michael stalked babysitters with their children.
Second, this film is great because of its acting. The original "Halloween" had excellent acting in it, creating very believable characters. The second "Halloween" had bad acting for the most (with the exception of Donald Pleasance, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Charles Cyphers). Here, we have some very talented young people. Donald Pleasance is of course great as Dr. Loomis who is now even more obsessed with killing Michael. Pleasance is convincing and great, and without him the "Halloween" series most likely wouldn't be what turned out to be. Joining the cast of the "Halloween" series is Ellie Cornell and Danielle Harris, both young, aspiring stars. Cornell is a perfect cast for Rachel and she is both beautiful and gifted as an actress. Cornell can play the pissed girlfriend, the protective older sister, and the terrified damsil in distress all in this one movie. Harris makes herself a horror icon in this movie. I have never seen a child actor more convincing than Harris in this movie. She will have you fear for her and her character runs along the lines of 1978's Lourie. Beau Starr doesn't replace Charles Cyphers, but he does hold a candle on his own. He is a great Sheriff and a memorable one at that. Sasha Jensen plays Rache's boyfriend Brady, Kathleen Kinmont plays the cruel daughter of Sheriff Meeker, and George P. Wilbur plays the sadistic Michael Myers. This is a cast that could only be accompanied by Dwight H. Little for a director and Alan B. McElroy as the writer.
Thridly, this movie is scary. It is not disturbing or really gory, but like the first "Halloween", it is scary because it just is. Unlike the second, "Halloween 4" doesn't rely on gross out death scenes to get its point across. Yes, there are some 'creative' deaths, but none truly disgusting. There is very little blood shown and the amount of thrills shown takes care of the lack of gore. Michael is once again merciless. He goes from the hospital, to the ambulence, to the gas station, to the open road, to the electic company, to the town of Haddonfield, where he wreaks havoc on its citizens. The suspense builds to the climax where Michael is chasing his final victims while ontop a truck. Michael also continues to pop out at people and appear suddenly, making him once again just plain old creepy. A lot of times, by the fourth sequel in a series, the chills are worn out, but "Halloween" proves that theory wrong.
In conclusion, if you are going to buy any two "Halloween" movies, make sure its 1978's "Halloween" and 1988's "Halloween 4: The Curse of Michael Myers". Overall, "Halloween 4" is a sure thing for any thriller fan. It is scary, entertaining, well acted, well done, well written, and just well overall. Michael Myers returns with a bang, and the series isn't even close to being over. From its suspense driven opening to its shocking and horrifying climax, you wil be sure to scream! Get the second night HE came home and continue your collection of great films. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A CLASSIC!!!!!!!
Fraternity Vacation is an excellent movie. I love this film. Stephen Georffeys is excellent as Wendell Tvedt, as well as Amanda Bearse. All the actors are well casted. Cameron Dye as Joe and Tim Robbins as Mother are hilerious and are well paired as buddies. Sheree J. Wilson is excellent and charming. It's nice to see Barbara Crampton and Kathleen Kinmont in their somewhat small roles. With this movie, you just have fun. It's funny, there's some romance and a little bit of nudity, if your Barbara Crampton and Kathleen Kinmont fans-you'll love it. This film is a classic in my opinion.

5-0 out of 5 stars Barbara and Kathleen are the real stars
The five stars is rewarded to the infamous scene with Barbara and Kathleen. They are so gorgeous. They are the true stars of this movies. I never grow tired of watching that scene over and over again.
This is their best work ever.

5-0 out of 5 stars Stephen Geoffreys, you the man
One should see this movie solely to see Stephen Geoffreys and Amanda Bearse working together again (from FRIGHT NIGHT). When watching the topless scenes, remember, this is fro mthe guy that directed THE MUPPET MOVIE.

5-0 out of 5 stars First american teen comedy in USSR
It was a first american teen comedy legally purchashed in USSR and even after 15 years it still stands amazing. Simple, nice, gentle and funny. Hollywood isn't able to make such films anymore...

5-0 out of 5 stars fraternity vacation
I really enjoyed the movie and I think that it would be good for an adult to watch it with some friends but not get the wrong idea that its all for sex or only to look at the naked women. I think that it is a good comedy movie with some romance on the side.

I also enjoy the fact that the beautiful women who plays on walker the tv show is on the movie. Sheree makes the movie better to watch. If I like an actress or actor that makes me want to watch the movie better and more. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Kickboxing movie.
You've seen this movie before. Really...you have. Rocky. The Karate Kid. Same thing.

Lorenzo Lamas plays Nick Taylor, a former kickboxing champion. After losing a title fight, he figures he is all washed up. A few years pass and an up and coming talent named Danny (Michael Worth) looks for Nick's help. Danny wants a trainer to show him how to be the best fighter around.

Anyway, you can fill in the rest of the plot from there. Nick trains Danny. Danny becomes the next kickboxing champion. THE END. If it doesn't sound very exciting, that's because it isn't. This type of film has been done much, much better before. Just look at the two flicks I already mentioned. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars Erotic only to the ultra-suppressed
To find this slow-paced film "erotic", you'd have to have been recently released from some Middle East sexually-repressed regime. It seems aimed towards over-40 Bible Belt types. (...)

1-0 out of 5 stars Should Be Swept Away
Scenario: Friend wanted a movie with sex and I wanted a horror movie. Compromise: Stormswept...supposed to be erotic horror
Result: We were both disappointed...very disappointed.
The basic premise of the movie is that a group of people end up in a creepy old mansion which is haunted by a ghost that periodically takes over members of the group and thereby causes them to get extremely horny. Sounds intriguing but it is absolutely awful!!! This is as scary as a Disney movie...aside from the creepy house, nothing is remotely frightening. The erotic/sex part of the movie is anything but erotic or even arousing. The picture quality is bad, the acting is worse, and the plot is the worst. Stay away from this wretched flick!!!

4-0 out of 5 stars More erotic than horrifying.
This movie is interesting in the moods that it sets for the viewer. Several people end up staying in a mansion to ride out a storm. Meanwhile, they are sequentially possessed by a spirit that makes them horny. Best looking collection of babes I've seen in a long time. Acting not as bad as expected, actually it's pretty good. My wife loved this movie. The horror elements are barely noticable, but I didn't mind because it more than makes up for what it lacks. After seeing mine a girlfriend of ours had me order her a copy. The only thing bringing this down from 5 stars is the video and audio are both a little below average but the movie is great erotic mindless entertainment. Highly recommended to the right audience.

3-0 out of 5 stars NOT BAD, IF YOU TAKE IT FOR WHAT IT IS
This movie was not meant to be "scary." It is more of a suspense movie with a plot that causes many sex scenes to take place. That is the type of movie it is. If you like that type of movie, go for it. You will get your fill. If you want a suspenseful horror flick (with less sex), try one of my personal favorites,"the Unholy." It is a lesser known movie that will definitely be worth a look.

1-0 out of 5 stars What a Joke
I was just getting ready to watch a good horror movie. It had all the elements (Thunderstorm, beautiful old antibellum haunted house) but this movie lacked an important factor- acting. Don't bother with this one unless you want to laugh throughout the film. So glad I rented it before I bought it. ... Read more

"You can't kill the bogeyman," the children insist to a terrorized Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) in the original Halloween. How right they are. Laurie is gone, but guess who's back in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers? Acting as if the third entry never existed, this installment picks up 10 years after the original, with mad maniac Myers in a coma and moved to a new facility. But wouldn't you know it that as soon as a loose-lipped orderly lets slip that Myers has a surviving niece he springs back into action, leaving a bloody trail of corpses on the road to Haddonfield. Donald Pleasance returns as Dr. Loomis, scarred and crippled from his last encounter with Myers and seething with a fanatical zeal to stop the freak from repeating his previous rampage. Pleasance is the best thing about the film as an aging hero seemingly on the verge of madness who drags a bum leg in his manic rush to save little orphan Jamie (Danielle Harris), the 10-year-old waif terrorized by her homicidal uncle. Director Dwight Little has managed a generic if professional slasher picture, rife with improbabilities and dominated by a killer whose superhuman powers reach near-mystical dimensions, but he delivers the goods: shocks, stabs, and cold, cruel killings. --Sean Axmaker ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Michael Myers Returns with a classic- HALLOWEEN 4 Rocks
If you thought the nightmare was over- you were DEAD wrong. Michael Myers is alive and well, and coming back to Haddonfield in "Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers", the fourth installment to the "Halloween" series and the third appearance of the sadistic Michael Myers. Without a doubt, "Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers" is the best "Halloween" sequel. It is just almost as good as the original in so many ways. "Halloween 4" sticks to a simple formula of the original but doesn't copy, it is well acted and direcred, and it is scary as they come. Halloween has returned to Haddonfield, and HE has come home... again.
First, "Halloween 4" stays with a simple, chilling story like the original "Halloween" but does not completely copy the film. It is hard for sequels to not stray too far from the series basics or not to just completely rewrite the original. Many series, such as "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre", "Friday the 13th", and "A Nightmare on Elm Street" tend to get repetative with their many sequels. "Halloween" however finds something new to add into the mix. Here, in "Halloween 4", the babysitter's nightmare comes true again. It's been ten years since Michael Myers killed 16 people until finally being stopped by Dr. Sam Loomis (Donald Pleasance). Myers and Loomis were both burned nearly to death, but they both lived, with Loomis gaining a limp and Myers being put into a coma. In those ten years, Lourie Strode has died with her husband Jimmy (from "Halloween II") in a car accident and left their daughter, Jamie (Danielle Harris) behind. Jamie has just arrived in a foster family under the care of the Curruthers', with Rachel Curruthers (Ellie Cornell) as her foster sister. Jamie has lived in fear of her uncle Michael waking up, but she hasn't had to worry... until now. While being transported to a different hospital, Michael awakes from his coma and brutally escapes, heading back to Haddonfield. No believes Loomis (again) that Myers is alive and heading to Haddonfield, but they are proven wrong when he arrives there, on Halloween night, and goes after little Jamie, plus anyone who gets in his way. Now this may sound like the original a bit, but the difference comes when this time Haddonfield is prepared for Myers, and when Loomis comes and warns Sheriff Meeker (Beau Starr, who has replaced Charles Cyphers as the Sheriff of Haddonfield), Haddonfield citizens and police get ready, but how is anyone safe. Meanwhie, Rachel has been assigned to take Jamie trick-or-treating, and soon enough, she looses her. Different twist from "Halloween" when Michael stalked babysitters with their children.
Second, this film is great because of its acting. The original "Halloween" had excellent acting in it, creating very believable characters. The second "Halloween" had bad acting for the most (with the exception of Donald Pleasance, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Charles Cyphers). Here, we have some very talented young people. Donald Pleasance is of course great as Dr. Loomis who is now even more obsessed with killing Michael. Pleasance is convincing and great, and without him the "Halloween" series most likely wouldn't be what turned out to be. Joining the cast of the "Halloween" series is Ellie Cornell and Danielle Harris, both young, aspiring stars. Cornell is a perfect cast for Rachel and she is both beautiful and gifted as an actress. Cornell can play the pissed girlfriend, the protective older sister, and the terrified damsil in distress all in this one movie. Harris makes herself a horror icon in this movie. I have never seen a child actor more convincing than Harris in this movie. She will have you fear for her and her character runs along the lines of 1978's Lourie. Beau Starr doesn't replace Charles Cyphers, but he does hold a candle on his own. He is a great Sheriff and a memorable one at that. Sasha Jensen plays Rache's boyfriend Brady, Kathleen Kinmont plays the cruel daughter of Sheriff Meeker, and George P. Wilbur plays the sadistic Michael Myers. This is a cast that could only be accompanied by Dwight H. Little for a director and Alan B. McElroy as the writer.
Thridly, this movie is scary. It is not disturbing or really gory, but like the first "Halloween", it is scary because it just is. Unlike the second, "Halloween 4" doesn't rely on gross out death scenes to get its point across. Yes, there are some 'creative' deaths, but none truly disgusting. There is very little blood shown and the amount of thrills shown takes care of the lack of gore. Michael is once again merciless. He goes from the hospital, to the ambulence, to the gas station, to the open road, to the electic company, to the town of Haddonfield, where he wreaks havoc on its citizens. The suspense builds to the climax where Michael is chasing his final victims while ontop a truck. Michael also continues to pop out at people and appear suddenly, making him once again just plain old creepy. A lot of times, by the fourth sequel in a series, the chills are worn out, but "Halloween" proves that theory wrong.
In conclusion, if you are going to buy any two "Halloween" movies, make sure its 1978's "Halloween" and 1988's "Halloween 4: The Curse of Michael Myers". Overall, "Halloween 4" is a sure thing for any thriller fan. It is scary, entertaining, well acted, well done, well written, and just well overall. Michael Myers returns with a bang, and the series isn't even close to being over. From its suspense driven opening to its shocking and horrifying climax, you wil be sure to scream! Get the second night HE came home and continue your collection of great films. ... Read more

this movie is really gorey and really funny at times. Combs has never been better and he gets inside his character well but theres a lot of things that I really felt that this movie was gonna suck and some of that was true. now with a cut off head with bat's wings and the finale which was really dumb, i'd say Yuzna smashed the cult hit off its throne but he didnt. later in beyond re-animator he does. in this one its cool to watch Abbott being pushed around by Combs and the spark they have is cool. others beware some of the lameness

3-0 out of 5 stars "The only blasphemy is to wallow in insignificance."
Director/producer Brian Yunza revives his characters from 1985's Re-Animator with this tongue in cheek splatter fest homage to The Bride of Frankenstein (1935). But where The Bride of Frankenstein actually succeeded its' predecessor (in the opinion of many), The Bride of Re-Animator falls a little short.

Returning are now doctors Herbert West (Jeffery Combs), Dan Cain (Bruce Abbott), and even Doctor Carl Hill (David Gale) makes an appearance, despite the fact he has no body (see the first movie). The film tries to build on the original showing doctors West and Cain, nine months after the hospital massacre in the first movie, working in Peru on the bloody frontlines of a civil war, still experimenting with the luminous, green life-giving juice. The notion is that in this backwater part of the world, they can work unfettered, not bothered by legal constraints. Things get a little hairy, and the boys decide to return stateside, working at the hospital with the first unpleasantness took place (I guess the hospital administrators have short memories).

Taking up residence in a house that was once a mortuary, located next to a cemetery, the doctors continue their work with creating life, using various body parts from the hospital morgue. Dan is reluctant, but Herbert proposes they create a woman, using various body parts, centered around the heart of Dan's deceased girlfriend, Meg, who bit the big one in the first movie.

Weird experiments and bloody body parts fill the screen, as a police lieutenant with a personal stake continues the investigation of what originally happened even though the case has been officially closed. Even the head of Dr. Hill makes a kept alive with the living giving juice.

Do Herbert and Dan succeed in bring Meg back to life from spare parts? From the title of the movie, you'd think so, but their creation is less than perfect...the movie may not be up to par with the original, but there is a really great scene where Herbert Combs goes into a nice rant about picking up where God left off, taking the refuse that is humanity and creating new life. Seeing that scene alone was worth watching this movie.

I did enjoy this film, but felt little of what made the first so enjoyable. If they were going to make a sequel, it was only natural to take the course that the filmmakers did, but I wish they would have infused more of a story into the film, and not gone whole hearted campy on us. The first movie did have its' humor, but it was well balanced with the rest of the story. I know sequels are rarely as good as the movie that spawned them, but I did have high hopes here. There's plenty of gore and blood, if you enjoy that kind of thing, but the movie is light on story. I felt much of it was patched together, tying elements together with the weakest of threads. The story may not hold up well, but it was fun to watch, especially the effects of Screaming Mad George and K.N.B. EFX Group.

My real disappointment is with Artisan, the company that released this disc. There are absolutely no special features, and all we are provided with is a full screen format. This movie was released on DVD before by Pioneer Video, loaded with special features, including two separate versions (one being a minute longer than the other), deleted scenes, bloopers, photo galleries, production information, commentary, and more. Also, the original release had both full screen and wide screen letterbox format, while we only get full screen here. You may be able to find that release, but you will most likely have to pay a premium, at least for a nice copy. This film was followed by a third movie, Beyond Re-Animator (2003).

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent sequel!
Set after 9 months since Herbert West ( Jeffery Combs) have conducted his gruesome experiments and caused a massacre at the Mistaktonic university, he is back to do a different kind of experiment of making living parts into one body to create life. He does have Dan ( Bruce Abbot) to still help him, Dr. Carl Hill ( David Gale) is also back to get revenge on Herbert West.
Highly exciting sequel loaded with gore, a wicked sense of humor, good direction by the original's producer Brian Yuzna and Combs is great as West again.
If you love the original, your going to love this too!

2-0 out of 5 stars Failed re-animation
"I will not be shackled by the failures of your God." Thus says mad genius Dr. Herbert West, who is back along with partner Dan Cain - only this time, they're creating life.

The story involves West (Jeffrey Combs) and Cain (Bruce Abbott) returning from war in Peru. After much research, West has finally discovered the secret to creating human life, and using Cain's lust for a mate as motivation, he proceeds to attempt to make Dan a bride from dead tissue. Naturally, there's also a few re-animated freaks who survived the first film, along with a suspicious detective (Claude Earl Jones) and West's nemesis, Dr. Carl Hill (David Gale), who's still a no-body. Get it? A-ha-ha-ha...

First of all, let me say I was a serious fan of the original "Re-Animator", thus I had no problem with buying a sequel that has a very bad reputation. Well, I can only say "Bride" lives up to its reputation. It has nothing whatsoever to do with any of H.P. Lovecraft's works, however it does borrow a few elements from his tale "Herbert West -- Re-Animator" which weren't used in the first film.

The acting is fine, the effects are fine, the music is fine. The direction is okay, although it can't match Stuart Gordon's. There are a few funny moments in the film, but overall it has a very, very unpleasant feeling about it - which the first film did not have.

Overall, this is only for serious "Re-Animator"/horror fans. Rent the first one instead. "Bride of Re-Animator" is nothing more than a failed re-animation.

DVD: This DVD is pitiful. No special features, Dolby Digital 2.0 sound, and picture quality that could've come off of an old VHS tape. It will do find if you're just a casual viewer, but if you're a fan of the film, then make sure you buy the excellent Pioneer edition.

Not half bad erotic thriller; beautiful women and an actual plot. And yes, as the last guy pointed out, a character does get away with murder. Which happens all the time in the real world.

3-0 out of 5 stars An okay thriller
This movie a alright. The acting was a little cheesey, and the sex scenes (described as HOT on the back of the DVD)were standard fare.

The plotline revolved around an assasination attempt, and was a little confusing. And one of the characters got aways with murder (literally) in the end. I really wanted her to get her dues, but maybe they figured she was justified? ... Read more

This was a very interesting film.It's about a psycho director shooting a murder movie where the people actually get killed! The people are killed in famous Hollywood death scenes such as the shower scene from Psycho and the chainsaw scene from Scarface. Grisly. Kathleen Kinmont was awesome in this!

2-0 out of 5 stars This house is condemned!
'Stranger in the House' hasn't got a lot going for it: it's badly acted, has a terrible script, and its world is populated with unsympathetic, flat characters. The husband & wife lead are yuppie scum, the criminals are greasy sleazoids-- things which would actually be okay if any of them were at all interesting. The directing by Rodney Gibbons is decent Hitchcock tribute, and I've added on an extra star for that alone. He managed to make the suspense scenes suspenseful, despite the movie being as lousy as it is.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not exactly Hitchcock, but an over all good flick.
Let me start by saying that the leading lady's performance in this movie was awful! The only good performance is given to us by the beautiful Kathleen Kinmont. I've met her, and she is the nicest, sexiest, most talented gal you'll ever come across. This is your average slasher flick about a guy hacking off people in the neighborhood. It grabs you and makes you want to hear more. The script is good and Katleen Kinmont is AWESOME! If you like suspence or Kathleen Kinmont you'll love it!

1-0 out of 5 stars So bad, it's so funny .... ( 0 STARS )
What a 'DUMP' of a movie! Who wrote this?! My brother and a few friends watched this for free one night. Our video store clerk friend says it never gets rented.

We were all game.

A hilarious part is when the villan says to the young woman who owns the bed/breakfast inn, that he's got binoculars for a reason - birdwatching (he's really spying on the dude with the diamonds to kill him-villan vs. villan)- and then she says, "Well, have a good stay...." But he replies, "Oh......I'm sure it will be sweeeeet" with a STUPID evil grin-I mean isn't his face so obviously suspicious??? And the way he said that sentence and others-I mean, anyone with his grin and an overempahsis on his words would seriously be sticking out as a person up to no good.

Then the next day he strangles her.....(ack)

A huge laugh too is when he's invited to eat with the neighbours across the way, eating greasy chicken - his physique matches a greedy, greasy chicken eating slob he is, pretending to be polite, smacking his lips with that STUPID CHICKEN - hahaha

My brother Michael-he and I both collaborated and wrote this review during a family visit. Such a stupid movie, that it was so funny.

Buy it for us, 'somebody'! We'll keep it for laughs.

3-0 out of 5 stars Suspense, murder mystery
Bought this movie because I am a Steve Railsback fan. Here he plays one of his more sleazy characters, but at least he is not a psychopath this time around. The suspense builds fast and the assorted villains all meet their deserved fate and our hero gets away in the end. Supporting cast are adequate. ... Read more

If you love the original, your going to love this too!

2-0 out of 5 stars Failed re-animation
"I will not be shackled by the failures of your God." Thus says mad genius Dr. Herbert West, who is back along with partner Dan Cain - only this time, they're creating life.

The story involves West (Jeffrey Combs) and Cain (Bruce Abbott) returning from war in Peru. After much research, West has finally discovered the secret to creating human life, and using Cain's lust for a mate as motivation, he proceeds to attempt to make Dan a bride from dead tissue. Naturally, there's also a few re-animated freaks who survived the first film, along with a suspicious detective (Claude Earl Jones) and West's nemesis, Dr. Carl Hill (David Gale), who's still a no-body. Get it? A-ha-ha-ha...

First of all, let me say I was a serious fan of the original "Re-Animator", thus I had no problem with buying a sequel that has a very bad reputation. Well, I can only say "Bride" lives up to its reputation. It has nothing whatsoever to do with any of H.P. Lovecraft's works, however it does borrow a few elements from his tale "Herbert West -- Re-Animator" which weren't used in the first film.

The acting is fine, the effects are fine, the music is fine. The direction is okay, although it can't match Stuart Gordon's. There are a few funny moments in the film, but overall it has a very, very unpleasant feeling about it - which the first film did not have.

Overall, this is only for serious "Re-Animator"/horror fans. Rent the first one instead. "Bride of Re-Animator" is nothing more than a failed re-animation.

DVD: This DVD is pitiful. No special features, Dolby Digital 2.0 sound, and picture quality that could've come off of an old VHS tape. It will do find if you're just a casual viewer, but if you're a fan of the film, then make sure you buy the excellent Pioneer edition.

2-0 out of 5 stars Bob Bralver's Rush Week
Dude! Somebody's, like, killing nubile young co-eds and the only one who can solve the murders is a cutie-pie spunky young college newspaper reporter! Dude!

"Rush Week" is yet another in a long line of uninspired slasher films. A young transfer student must write a fluff piece about rush week. She falls for the president of a wild fraternity, who also happens to be our main suspect in the murders. Young women are being hacked open with a giant axe just after posing nude for photographs taken by the cafeteria cook (and ours would just put extra cheese on the pizza). The women are disappearing all over, and of course the final frat party has a Halloween theme, just to throw in more red herrings than you can shake a severed head at. The party scenes feature so many poor local bands trying to make the most of their big cinematic break, I wanted to hunt down the party committee chair and off him with an axe. The way too long finale takes place in "the science building," apparently fictional colleges do not name their buildings after former university presidents. The real killer is revealed (big duh), reporter and frat boy live happily ever after.

On the positive, we do have the nude co-eds. I appreciate the female form as much as the next horror film reviewer, and it is on display here. There are bare male butts, but they are usually mooning people (oh, those crazy frats).

On the negative, the film piles on so much evidence that the frat president is the killer, you can pretty much guarantee he is not. He takes long midnight walks alone, has vicious mood swings, and goes to rescue spunky reporter in the finale wearing the exact same hood and robes as the killer. Is the killer the cafeteria cook? No, he just takes the nude pictures, he does not seem the killer type. Is the killer the biology gofer named Mort who skulks around the university's only cadaver? No, this minor suspect disappears half way through the film! Is the killer the spunky reporter's advisor, Gregg Allman? No, he has two scenes that last slightly longer than his marriage to Cher, and he proves he should not quit the classic rock county fair tour to start doing Shakespeare. Is the killer the dumb-named Dean of Students Grail? I was hoping his murdered daughter's name was Holly Grail, but no such luck. He is the only adult who is preoccupied with all the sin going on during rush week...hmmm...

The final nail in the coffin, as it were, is that we never see the nudie models killed. Sure, the maniac comes in and swings an axe, but no blood and no bodies! The whereabouts of the bodies is never discussed. The crime scene has just three drops of blood, the killer must be a neat freak. The only murders onscreen occur in the finale, and now we find out where the special effects budget went. In desperation on the film makers' part, the killer even jumps up to attack again after everyone figures he is dead. Like most Hollywood films set on campus, no one ever goes to class, they just party. I did that my sophomore year... and ended up being a fifth year senior since I only brought out six credits worth of passing grades. Then again, I wasn't going to the screenwriters' fantasy university in this film.

"Rush Week" is no rush, and very weak. I do not recommend it.

This is rated (R) for physical violence, gore, some profanity, strong female nudity, some male nudity, and sexual content.

3-0 out of 5 stars What the Heck Happened to Soldier?
Snakeeater 2, a.k.a. "Snake Eater 2" varies wildly from the original Snakeeater movie that allowed Lorenzo Lamas to step out of the giant shadow cast by his father, the late, great Fernando (insert Abba joke here). Lamas is back as Soldier, with a LAST NAME this time, so now he's called Soldier Kelly. Seems Soldier is so gosh-darned crazy and in-your face (again) to his wimpy cop bosses (this was filmed in Canada, remember) that he ends up with the choice of either jail-time or an insane asylum for his ways. CAN'T YOU JUST ACCEPT HIM FOR WHO HE IS??? Anyway, Soldier ends up at the local nut-house, populated by some colorful characters who all just happen to be bad actors. Horshack from "Welcome Back..." makes a return appearance. Also, there's a Jim Baker televangelist clone in there. So, Soldier keeps breaking out to do his version of justice: rigging cowardly traps, killing people in cold blood, blowing up bathroom stalls, etc. AND this time he has a cool, urban sidekick named Speedboat (Larry B. Scott); a dude that looks like he got lost on the way to a Bell, Biv, DeVoe concert and ended up in this movie. Oh, that Speedboat, what with his witty lines and all. Anyway, this movie is nowhere near as violent as the first and there's no nudity, so if you are hoping to see Speedboat's hot sister starkers, forget it. There are two reasons to see this: 1.) the afore-mentioned wheelchair fight on the roof of the nut-house and 2.) the way they kill the drug-runners...OK, and 3.) Speedboat's sister. That's about it. Harmless and somewhat fun drivel; great for watching at 3am while loaded.

1-0 out of 5 stars Speedboat?! Why is he named SPEEDBOAT?!
On the back of the DVD...

"Soldier Kelly's not your ordinary cop. He's a shortfused, high-powered ex-commando who's not above breaking the law to bring a criminal down. Lorenzo Lamas returns as Soldier Kelly, the SnakeEater, back to battle a deadly ring of drug kingpins who are killing young kids with poisoned drugs!"

By the way, if you're looking for plot development, there is none. They give only marginally decent explanations as to how they know the locations of where the drug lord lives, where the crackhouses are, etc.We never find out why Speedboat is called Speedboat... and we're always left wondering how it is that the two main protagonists end up shirtless in a room, muscles glistening as beads of sweat emphasize the labour they're putting into pouring crack into a ventilation shaft for 5 minutes in the movie.
I'm still a little stupified as to the wheelchair duel that takes place on the rooftop of an insane asylum... And beyond all else, why anyone would want to preserve this film on DVD.
I thought it was hysterically funny in the sense that this is such an awful film. If you like sitting and making fun of 80's flicks, or if you have a cardboard cut-out of Lorenzo Lamas in your room that you lather in vaseline every day to make yourself feel more like him, then this is the movie for you.

4-0 out of 5 stars Comedy, Action, Romance, what more could you ask for??!?!
Great Movie that is must for any true comedy fan. I'm still unsure if they are trying to make it funny or it's unintentional; we may never know. The actors aren't great, the action pretty much is fake, the plot blows, but all in all I'd say pick it up for a rainy day and you won't regret it. ... Read more
