    "The Last Showing" (2014)
    Robert "Freddy Krueger" Englund stars in this low-budget British thriller set in a multiplex. He's a crazed projectionist who traps a young couple inside the theater overnight and makes them unwilling "stars" in his own personal horror film. Not a classic, but not bad for an obscure cheapie.

    'Loveless' (2017) at the London Film Festival. Russian drama, director's follow-up to 2014's 'Leviathan' which was one of the standout films of that year for me. This one didn't reach those heights but still required viewing for arthouse fans.

    "Truck Turner" (2017)
    Soul music legend Isaac Hayes is Mac "Truck" Turner, the most bad-ass skip tracer and bounty hunter in L.A. When he kills the city's most powerful pimp during a shootout, the dude's grieving girlfriend and business partner (Nichelle "Lt. Uhura" Nichols!) puts a price on Truck's head, and soon every bad mo-fo in the city is gunning for him.
    This blaxploitation classic is tons of sleazy, action packed fun. Groove on the outrageous fashions, the hair, the slang, and especially the funk-tastic soundtrack. Pure '70s gold.

    Release date on this should read 1974, not 2017. It would be kind of hard for Isaac Hayes to star in a movie now, since he's been dead for about ten years ago, haha. Not enough coffee....

    "The Burning" (1981)
    A gang of summer campers plays a fiery prank on "Cropsey," the cranky ol' caretaker -- which goes horribly wrong and burns the poor bastard alive. Five years later, a mysterious figure who wields a mean pair o' garden shears starts picking off a new crew of camp counselors.
    This is very familiar territory, of course (see: any random "Friday the 13th," "Madman," "Sleepaway Camp," etc.) but "The Burning" was a cut (sorry) above most of its summer-camp splatter competition, due to the truly nasty gore effects from carnage wizard Tom Savini.

    Watch for a young Jason Alexander of future "Seinfeld" fame (with hair!) as one of the potential victims. Fisher Stevens, later of "Short Circuit," also makes an appearance and a young Holly "Raising Arizona" Hunter is supposedly in here too as one of the campers, but I couldn't pick her out.

    Bonus bit of useless trivia: it turns out that "The Burning" was the very first production from Harvey Weinstein's Miramax studio, coincidentally ol' Harvey has been all over the news this past week due to supposed improper conduct towards the women who work for him...

    Battle Circus with Bogie, June Allyson, Keenan Wynn. I see where they got the idea for M*A*S*H*. No too bad...

    "Hush" (Netflix original, 2016)
    A deaf/mute woman who lives alone in an isolated cabin has to fight off a murderous and very determined home invader... but if he thinks she's going to go down easy, he picked the wrong house.
    This taut little suspense/horror/thriller is kinda like a 21st century update/twist on the '60s Audrey Hepburn flick "Wait Until Dark."
    Cool stuff, sucked me in right from the get-go. Definitely worth a look.

    Battle for the Planet of the Apes
    Amusing enough, with strange elements of Apocalypse Now and Colditz thrown in.

    "Gerald's Game" (2017)
    Looking to re-ignite the spark in their love life, a couple heads off to a secluded beach house for some private sexy time, which includes handcuffing Wifey to the bed. Unfortunately for her, Hubby then drops dead of a sudden heart attack, leaving her trapped and alone. Soon she learns that in order to escape her current situation, she'll have to overcome some demons from her past as well.
    A tight, disturbing, well done psychological thriller based on Stephen King's novel.

    The Salvation (2014)

    A western with some questionable plot holes that the thoroughly evil villain entertains you enough to overlook with an ending that you really have to think about to get the full meaning of. I liked it.
