Mike’s Review: The Last Exorcism (2010)
★★★out of ★★★★★
When a coach, teacher, parent, or peer says “…hey there, that was a really competent job.” Competent? Yeah. Competent. A really condescending term that points to the ultimate in back-handed compliments. It’s not bad, per se, but it ain’t great either. Enter The Last Exorcism. A really competent piece of filmmaking.

Eric’s Review: Cooties (2014)
★★ 1/2 out of ★★★★★
Directed by Jonathon Milott and Cary Murnion
The zombie-pocalypse begins in an elementary school playground, and the kids turn on the teachers. Bloody (occasionally) and goofy (sometimes) mayhem (almost) ensues. Shrugs all around.

Eric’s Review: Ghost Stories (2018)
