Nieng Arp (2004)

Cambodian film Nieng Arp takes traditional folk-lore and a known genre-premise and combines it into an overly long mess of a film that nobody should have to watch. […]

The Vampire Happening (1971)

God-awful European attempt to produce a horror-comedy. This 1971 farce is entirely devoid of any redeeming features, and thus a complete waste of its cast. […]

From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series [season 2] (2015)
