Killer Dolls: Annabelle (2014)
Our Killer Dolls series continues with a chapter from The Conjuring-verse! A yuppy couple (who should really break up) keep an obviously haunted doll around for no reason. Padded plot, overdone jumpscares, and Rosemary’s Baby references abound!

90s Teen Slashers: ‘Urban Legend’
Unlike its peers, ‘Urban Legend’ isn’t trying too hard. One might say it isn’t trying at all. The only ‘challenging’ aspect is keeping track of its internal urban myth bingo.
90s Teen Slashers: ‘Final Destination’
A great movie to emphasize ‘fuck death!’ Originally a draft X-Files script, Final Destination was supposed to be an ‘anti-slasher’ movie. It’s an anti-something, all right. It gets crazy, it gets dumb. Let’s die-ve into Death’s Die-sign!
90s Teen Slashers: ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’
I Know What You Did Last Summer is ‘prime’ teen slasher horror. Our cast is quintessentially 90s. The villain cloaked in an improbable, vaguely menacing costume. The script has the depth of a puddle. It is not a good product. But it is entertainingly mock-able.
