The Land Before Time II: The Great Valley Adventure (1994)

Image
In search of some adventure in their safe and peaceful valley, the five young dinosaur friends make a hideaway. From there, they spot two thieves in action, stealing an egg from one of their broods. They chase them down and manage to recover the egg without its parents noticing, but in the process, accidentally create an opening into the valley, allowing two dreaded Sharptooths in. Everyone must fight them off together to preserve their peaceful way of life.

REVIEW: Over the next long while, I plan on watching and reviewing every single Land Before Time Direct-to-Video sequel, starting with The Land Before Time II: The Great Valley Adventure, in celebration of a brand new one coming out this year, for the first time in almost 10 years. Growing up I had only seen up to Part 5, so everything after that will be brand new to me, and even everything before that is very fuzzy to me.

However, to begin I'd like to give some very brief thoughts on the infamous first, and currently only thea…

Darr @ The Mall (2014)

Image
Asia's largest mall is ready for it's inauguration, however there have been various accidental deaths in the mall and the owners are tired of stories about the mall being haunted. Vishnu is hired as the mall's chief of security and during the mall's inaugural party, must work to solve the mystery behind the supernatural occurrences while the death toll continues rising.

REVIEW: It's no secret to those that know me that I love Bollywood movies. And horror movies, for that matter. So I always love it when those two cross over, even if the end result isn't exactly all that good (such as with Vikram Bhatt's Creature, also from 2014). After all, it's not every day that you get to have random upbeat song and dance numbers in the middle of an atmospheric horror movie about ghostly murdered orphan children!


What surprised me though was just how atmospheric and genuinely creepy Darr at the Mall was at times. I can count on half a hand how many Bollywood h…

Cassidy Way (2016)

Image
REVIEW BY: Cameron Popplestone

When a film student and her two friends go to Kern County to shoot a documentary, they stumble upon a mysterious family and learn why Pandora's box should never have been opened. 

REVIEW: Cassidy Way tells the story of three film students who get lost after stumbling across something they shouldn't have as they film a documentary. They end up meeting a family who initially offer to help them find their car, but turn out to have more devious motives than initially realized. This is tied to a corporation who is trying to buy up the land in the town, and this strange family turn out to be the only holdouts, due to an incident that happened between them and some of the employees of the corporation several years prior to the events of the film.

Cassidy Way is not a very good movie. It's problems stem from a pretty uninspiring concept that's already been seen many times before, as well as pretty poor acting overall from just about eve…
