So when the mobility challenged beauty queen shows up at a local pageant, Jake puts his plan into motion, running her RV off the road and kidnapping the family.

Kolobos (1999)

Kyra and four new acquaintances answer an ad in the newspaper looking for potential participants (“freeloaders”) in some sort of documentary style experiment that will film all of their interactions while living together. So, it’s basically The Real World before all that crap got popular. What Kyra’s fellow lodgers don’t know is that she has some documented mental issues that she’s been working through and even has even been taking some medications for them. But whatever specter she may have hovering over her mental state seems rather mute when the posh residence they’re staying at goes into lock-down mode, trapping them inside with a bunch of laser tripped booby traps and a dark, faceless figure that seems intent on killing them one by one.

Freaked (1993)

The more I look at this DVD cover, the more I dislike it. It’s got too much Randy Quaid and not enough Freaks. I don’t really read anything about the movies TCM is going planning to show on Friday nights. The most I do when I go to their website is look up the schedule. […]

Cronos (1993)

Ah, Guillermo Del Toro’s first full length film. I don’t know about you, but his name is associated with a bunch of stuff I like, so this seemed like a no brainer. I had high hopes for this and I was not disappointed. Over 400 years ago, a brilliant alchemist fled Europe and settled in […]
