“MA” a Diabolical Thriller

May 30th, 2019 No comments

 

 

 

 

 

Review by John Delia, Sr.

If you think the movie Get Out was shocking, wait until you see the diabolical Ma. You won’t have a clue to what this party woman has cooked up until just the right moment. Then as it unravels, even some of the hints are misleading. When you do know the truth, then it’s just one sick scene after another. Read more…

“Suspiria” Dancing with Evil

Review by John Delia

Weird and disturbing the movie Suspiria takes you into the realm of evil. Although it could have been a good film for horror fans, the film lags to extremes and movies so slow you may nod off from the droning music and repetitious modern ballet. When you do finally get to the terror, for horror fans it’s a good presentation of typical gore and extreme evil violence. Not for the squeamish or fearful the film does achieve points of cruel depravity, pernicious nudity and bone snapping body parts. Bring a pillow, you’ll be there for a while. Read more…

A Marvel Antihero “Venom”

Review by John Delia

A new super dude arrives on the scene and this time it’s a hero controlled by an antihero called Venom. Probably the ugliest of the Marvel villains, the Symbiote character “feeds off” humans as it does its dirty work. Purists should be informed that Spider-Man, the graphic novel first host for the evil parasite Venom, does not appear in the movie and therefore deviates from the norm. Read more…

“The Predator” Slicing and Dicing

Review by John Delia

Director Shane Black turns The Predator franchise on its ear and makes a down right raucous comedy out of it. But, I’m loving it. It’s something the Horror flick needed and Shane Black wouldn’t stand for the same ole, same ole cookie cutter movie. If you are a fan you remember the series started out with Arnold Schwarzenegger in a serious tone back in 1987 and had a rebirth just as dark in 2010 called Predators. While most of the Predator films can be considered standalone’s, the thread that holds them all together is the Alien’s ugly face with its snapping jaws and glowing eyes. Read more…

“Hostile” Looking to Survive

Review by John Delia

Have you ever watched a movie and the acting was just okay, but the story and production were so compelling you lasted through it? Well, I have another one for you. It’s called Hostile and it has just been released on DVD. I do like the actors however, as they are fresh faces in a world of repeat performers who have dominated the screen. With better direction and a better remix of the plot, this film could have been a real standout. In the meantime if you like films that have cannibals and the look of a Mad Max thriller, combined with a romance that has a decent plot, then check this one out. Read more…

“The Little Stranger” an Ominous Mystery

August 30th, 2018 No comments

 

 

 

Review by John Delia, Sr.

The mystery The Little Stranger will have you fooled throughout, but that may not be a good thing. Fueled by an ominous musical score, the film keeps the audience mesmerized as the play develops into a devilish turn of events. Twists and turns aplenty you would think you were on a carousel waiting for the next bend, listening to tidbits from the people passing by and a wash of a dismal life in a house in slow decay. While you are treated to excellent acting by the whole cast, it’s not enough for the mediocre payoff. Read more…

“The First Purge” Testing Anger Management

Review by John Delia

Continuing with their franchise, the producers of The Purge bring you the beginning of the free to kill program with The First Purge. There’s no reason given for needing to show how it all started, because if you have seen any of the other three, the idea is mentioned offhandedly in each one. In this episode the mayhem, savagery and killing continue at a fast pace until the siren gets blown after 12 hours. Read more…

“Hereditary” Evil in the House

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Spooky and very edgy the movie Hereditary should delight horror fans that are into the occult. Even though you may get a feeling of déjà vu from other films that have included supernatural incidents, the acting here keeps it sinister enough to carry the fan base. If you like sick and twisted films like Rosemary’s Baby and The Witch, this is your cauldron of tea. Read more…

“Truth or Dare” The Evil Lies Within

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Captivating, creepy, and chilling the supernatural thriller Truth or Dare takes you on a never ending journey of death. Much like other horror filmmakers that have perfected the formula for surprise and contagious emotional terror, this film has it all bundled tightly and calculating to transfix the audience into believing. If you saw the films It Follows, The Ring and the Final Destination series, you’ll relive the sensations those films made way beyond leaving the theater. Read more…

Looking for Evil Spirits “Demon House”

Review by John Delia, Sr.

When you hear about a horror movie that’s a documentary the first one that comes to mind is Blair Witch Project or Paranormal Activity both of which are not documentaries. Demon House on the other hand credit’s itself as a full fledged real life documentary. The writer and director Zak Bagans, a paranormal investigator best known for his “Ghost Adventures” on cable TV, takes you into his world and it isn’t just a walk in the park. Read more…
