Hobgoblins 2 (2008)
It’s 20 years later, yet everything looks oddly the same in this sequel to the low-budget horror classic, which painstakingly creates the look of the original — from the killer puppets to the cheesy 1980s attire of its characters. Now in college, Kevin (Josh Mills) and his pals think the days of hobgoblin attacks are long gone. Unfortunately, they’re dead wrong. Roland Esquivel and Josh Green also star.
Simon Says (2006)
When five college pals head into the wilderness for a little rest and relaxation, they run headlong into Simon and Stanley (both played by Crispin Glover), backwoods twin brothers with a fondness for booby traps rigged with flying pickaxes. Now, the teens must claw their way out of the woods without springing one of the brothers’ ingeniously lethal snares. William Dear directs this gleefully gore-drenched film; Blake Lively co-stars.
War Wolves (2009)
Fresh from the battlefields of the Middle East, vet Jake Gabriel (director Michael Worth) faces a new enemy as he struggles to suppress the werewolf within after having been cursed with lycanthropy during a gunfight. John Saxon plays a commander sent to the States to apprehend Gabriel before he can infect others — little knowing that a trio of female soldiers from Gabriel’s unit is already pursuing the wolf man … for a very different reason.
A group of programmers is heading to an executive retreat in the wilderness of Northern California’s Jasper Park — where, two months earlier, a couple disappeared while camping. Will the computer geeks’ training prepare them for what ensues? When a friendly paintball game turns into a fight for survival against a band of lunatic locals, the nerds must show what they’re made of in this thriller starring Ryan Merriman and Haylie Duff.
