Review in a Nutshell: A competently made film that can’t seem to pick a tone and stick with it, Man’s Best Friend (1993) is hampered as a horror film by some questionable characterization, tonal inconsistencies, and a canine antagonist that is entirely too adorable for his murderous role.

Review in a Nutshell: As far as low budget, “Weird West” children’s films about a suburban family succumbing to the depredations of an unspeakable Lovecraftian eldritch horror go, Phantom Town isn’t bad. Okay, it’s actually pretty bad, but its bizarre premise alone makes it worth watching at least once.
