Saw 3D – 2010 – Kevin Greutert

I didn’t see it in 3D, but I suspect it would have added to the experience. More blood, more traps, more twists and turns, and a wholly unbelievable plot. Good for blood, but watch the earlier ones. Brian Murray

Mother of Tears – 2007 – Dario Argento

The third installment of the Three Mothers trilogy by Dario Argento, the true stepfather of Eli Roth, Rob Zombie and the rest of the gornography gang, is spectacularly bad. And I mean bad in every way; acting, story, dialogue. You must, like me, have this crazy thing for horrors to watch this to the end! Omid Nikfarjam

Zombie Strippers! – 2008 – Jay Lee

Ping pong balls and flesh-eating strippers led by the infamous Jenna Jameson; that should be enough not to watch it. It opens with a humourous polemic against George Bush, misleading you into thinking that it’s going to be good, but ultimately ends up as a cloaked soft-porn movie. Brian Murray

Diary of the Dead – 2007 – George A. Romero

With elements of Night of the Living Dead, and Dawn of the Dead one would expect DofD to be good. There’s plenty of suspense, and well written dialogue, for a zombie movie, but if you’ve seen the aforementioned movies then there is nothing to be gained from watching this. Brian Murray

Naked Beneath The Water – 2006 – Sean Cain

A terrible movie about the unreality of reality TV. Some cynical TV executives exploit stupid idiots to fake a serial killer murder reality-TV show. Along the way their plan backfires and they get killed. Terrible as a bag of chips marinated in water for a week. Brian Murray

Timber Falls – 2008 – Tony Giglio

A couple of city slickers are befriended by a passer-by in the woods. When the stranger sees them doing the horizontal shuffle in their tent she decides to give them some good Christian wrath forcing them to marry so that she may steal the offspring. Story about average, redneck America. Brian Murray

Lost Boys: The Tribe – 2008 – P.J. Pesce

This was never going to reach the expectations of the prequel. Angus Sutherland replaces his elder half brother as a vampire and Corey Feldman was convinced to reprise his role. All in all, matches Lost Boys in look and style. Not a cult classic like the first one, but not offensive. Brian Murray
