Alone in the Dark (2005, 96 min., R)

Along Came a Spider (2001, 104 min., R)

Much like its predecessor, 1997's Kiss the Girls, Along Came a Spider is an efficient, if overly mechanized, delivery system of thrills 'n' chills, classed up by some narrative sleight of hand and the rock-solid performance ...

Unfortunately, what makes British abolitionist William Wilberforce a great man is also what makes him dull: his single-minded righteousness.

The Amazing Panda Adventure (1995)
