A Kiss Before Dying (1991)

A determined student murders his pregnant secret girlfriend and moves onto her twin sister who gradually becomes suspicious of her new lover.

Moderately entertaining, but quite unoriginal Hitchcock-like thriller.

Halliwell*: "Moderately effective thriller, though it offers a considerable simplification of the novel on which it is based."

Maltin*1/2: "Almost completely ineffectual thriller..."

After the Dark (2013)

At an international school in Jakarta, a philosophy teacher challenges his class of twenty graduating seniors to choose which ten of them would take shelter underground and reboot the human race in the event of a nuclear apocalypse.

The premise is only intriguing at first sight, the movie itself is so pretentious, it may scare off the uninformed from ever taking philosophy serious.
