by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

POLTERGEIST :

“..the spirits may have been willing with Poltergeist but the movie is weak..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE III :

“..more depravity, more terrible acting..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

RETURN TO SENDER :

“..the camera prowls menacingly through the interiors, but the writers seem too content with their improbable conceit to bother with back story or character arcs..”
by David Parkinson [Radio Times]

by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
