Four Rooms Review


Weak
I wish I could say I was let down by Four Rooms, but given the sheer volume of just awful buzz about the film, I think I got what I was expecting: an over-anticipated, overworked movie that was full of talent but devoid of taste.

Lair Of The White Worm Review


Weak
Ultra-cheesy low-budget horror flick give us Amanda Donohoe, Hugh Grant, and, well, a really big worm. Donohoe vamps it up as the last acolyte of an ancient pagan snake-god religion in this ridiculous excuse for a movie, notable mainly for Grant's appearance as a researcher of sorts who gets caught up in the goings-on when a giant snake skull is dug up.

It's silly -- in fact, it's unbelievably silly -- to the point where some of the film's more absurd one-liners might make you giggle. Sure there are points where it gets awful: the hoedown where a hillbilly band sings a song about the legendary worm that once terrorized the area (complete with people in a snake costume which Grant slices in half) is a lowlight. The "special effects" -- which use cardboard overlays under which actual action takes place -- are worthy of the 1950s.
