Cobra (1986)

Director: George P. Cosmatos Writer: Sylvester Stallone (Based on the novel “Fair Game” by Paula Gosling) Kinda good in that cliche 80s action movie kind of way.

Lord of Illusions (1995)

Director: Clive Barker Writer: Clive Barker (Based on the short story “The Last Illusion” by Clive Barker) Another messy Barker movie that I also kind of enjoy for its weirdness and ambitions.
