ChromeSkull: Laid to Rest 2 – “ChromeSkull” is the sequel to the 2009 film “Laid to Rest.” It brings back ChromeSkull, who barely escaped death in the first movie and is hell-bent on continuing where he left off… and forging a new path of terror and destruction. If you saw the first then you know what you’re in for with this, I see a new franchise emerging.
The Ward – A thriller centered on an institutionalized young woman who becomes terrorized by a ghost. A good return from John Carpenter.
Wrong Turn 4 – Wrong Turn 4 Follows a group of friends that decide to go snowmobiling during their winter break. They make a “wrong turn”, getting lost in a storm. A good addition the franchise and an entertaining watch.
Psych:9 – Working alone at night in a recently closed hospital, an unstable woman witnesses events that may be connected to a string of murders. a film that seemed to slip under the radar, very gripping.
And last but not least a film I wish I had placed on my top ten:
Primal – Anja and five friends join anthropology student Dace on a journey to study a remote ancient rock painting. Their excitement vanishes when Mel becomes delirious after skinny-dipping in the waterhole. Feverish bleeding confused she physically and mentally regresses to a vicious predatory state. Mel has gone primal.
Mels lover and friends realize they are the prey as she savagely hunts them down. Before they can escape another one of them starts to regress posing a hideous choice kill their friends or be killed by them. Their only hope of survival is through a cave where Anja learns too late the meaning of the ancient rock art they came to study. Easily one of my favourite films of the year
