One persons Falburn Academy is another persons Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Ah, well. Five stars for Patricia Clarkson in a performance perhaps a little too complex for what the role demands. Subtract two stars for a rushed and too-pat ending. but add one for attempting an homage to Argentos Suspira. Not for Saw fans.

Any movie on a double-bill with Windcroft, as this one was, would tower in comparison. Even so, there is something inherently haunting about this film -- not the acting nor even the story so much as the building itself and the glimpses of its few remaining tenants. There could have been a much better movie here, but this is a capable programmer.

8. Windcroft (2007)

Director: Evan Meszaros | Stars: Joe Ryan, Vanessa Daniels, Monica Knight, Ray Wasik

Votes: 247

No need to worry about spoilers here -- paint drying comes to mind. To be clear: nothing happens for 90 minutes, then something happens, and then the movie's over. Feel free to check my math, but don't say you weren't warned. The only reason I'm giving this one star is because I was born in Pennsylvania (and I couldn't publish this review without one).

Votes: 87,740 | Gross: $21.37M

Forget the negative reviews -- here and from the people who get paid to review movies. This is actually a nifty little Saturday afternoon sci-fi film. But there is a catch: you MUST STOP WATCHING 15 minutes before the end of the picture... really, trust me, just stop, no good can come from seeing the cheesy ending. If you insist on watching it, don't say you weren't warned. Other than that -- good effects (L.A., once again, in big trouble), some believable suspense and truly tense situations, interesting set-up, and tolerable acting (but, admit it, acting isn't really why you watch a movie like this, is it?)

Director: Shane Van Dyke | Stars: Shane Van Dyke, Marie Westbrook, Bruce Davison, Brooke Burns

Votes: 11,050

Lets be perfectly clear: This movie is dreadful. Awful. From the collagen in Brooke Burns lips to the 666-Call-Me late night escorts draped from Shane Van Dykes arms... terrible. If you can accept the souvenir-laden, back-pack toting, tank top/flip-flop & shorts tourist crowd that frequents the Queen Mary as the lucky passengers of the inaugural voyage of the T2, then youll probably accept the Queen Mary as a stand in for the doomed (again), steaming from her berth in Long Beach past the Statue of Liberty in 5 minutes flat. Final warning: this is not THAT KIND of bad movie. It really is just one monstrous waste of time. Dont be fooled by the single star rating -- they make you give at least one.
