Review in a Nutshell: A PG-13 “sequel” to an R-rated original, House II: The Second Story is a horror comedy film that mostly works because of its strong production values, irreverent tone, and a strong performance by character actor Royal Danno as Gramps.

Review in a Nutshell: An extremely strange and relentlessly artsy “ghost and fantasy” movie, House (1977) is a unique cinematic experience and well worthy of critical consideration. It’s not so much scary as nightmarish, and everyone should watch it at least once, if only on a dare.

Review in a Nutshell: The Changeling (1980) is a beautifully shot, gorgeously edited, low-key, suspenseful film that is part ghost story and part detective story. Although the final act stumbles a bit after all of the mysteries are revealed, it’s still interesting as a well-made, atypical horror movie.
ERRATA: I accidentally referred to House on Haunted Hill as 13 Ghosts. Mea culpa.

featuring Sean ‘Hollywood’ Hunting.
Review in a Nutshell: A revisionist Western with a splash of the supernatural added in, High Plains Drifter is well-constructed but morally bleak film that weaves a tale of lost souls, greed, conspiracy, and revenge from beyond the grave.
Don’t drink the amber rum, because The Devil’s Backbone is the Greatest Movie EVER!
Review in a Nutshell: The Devil’s Backbone is a Gothic tale of injustice and inevitability set during the Spanish Civil War. Think of it as a primer for Pan’s Labyrinth, with less magic, more realism, and no Doug Jones.
