6. Doom

May 27

Doom was an early role for Dwayne Johnson, back when he was better known as WWE star The Rock. It’s not great even by video game movie standards, but its oddly satisfying first-person sequence makes it worth a watch for fans of hokey action.

5. Army of Darkness

May 31

The Evil Dead series is an absolute oddity: low budget but with deft direction, genre-breaking in new ways with each entry. Army of Darkness leans hard into comedy with its unexpected time-travel story.
