    Korine's trying to offer a radical vision of rotten America, but the whole thing feels warmed over.
  1. Hush, which is an absurdly bad mixture of "Rosemary's Baby" and any Bette Davis movie from the 1960s, seems to be a classic case of a grasping mother trying to possess her beloved son.
  2. Another "Exorcist" bastard -- one with a chick-flick pedigree.
  3. You're smarter than this, but occasionally it tricks you into thinking it might be up to something you haven't considered, like an above-average, extra-bloody episode of "Scooby Doo."
  4. Tedious, unfunny.
  5. That Berkley cannot act is indisputable. But her dancing looks like a seizure.
  6. Cult shocker has been turned into throwaway megaplex fodder.

  7. Especially fine are Spade and Louiso, the latter possessing a quality of injured integrity that is priceless here.
  8. This is right up there with the dumbest pictures of the year.
  9. Latest Freddie Prinze Jr. vehicle stalls at on-ramp.

  10. The movie is a dismal and misguided special-effects romp featuring two of the deadest performances recorded this year so far.
  11. Breaks new ground both as an abominable enterprise in guy-talk and as no-budget hackwork.

  12. If filmmaking has ever been less thrilling and more disengaging, I'd like to see it.
