    ★½

    A real 2002 Dimension movie if there ever was one, I don’t know why this was the film they decided to slap the Tales From the Crypt name on. Aside from the cheaply-produced wraparounds, in which I’m actually shocked they shelled out for John Kassir’s voice talents, nothing about this feels like your typical Tales. It’s just a remake of I Walked With a Zombie, and not a really good one. There’s also a lot of weird editing going on…

    I needed a real mood booster today and was already itching to watch this again. While the first act somehow felt even more jumbled the second go around, the rest of the film worked even better. The Marvel formula may be a formula, but hot dog, it works like gangbusters. Plus it’s nice seeing Ben Mendelsohn get to do some comedy for a change.

    ★★★★

    A staple of the video store days, I was amazed at how many of these beats I remember despite not seeing it in almost 20 years. But then again, I used to rent it pretty much every couple of months for several years. This thing is full of monsters, great practical effects and a stacked cast. And it’s so damn gory. Welcome back into my life, Demon Knight.

    ★★★

    So few characters means a low body count, but there’s enough atmosphere in this snowbound chiller to make up for it. A little slow in parts, but it’s budgetary limitations add to the dreaminess, though it doesn’t make much sense in the end.
