“A SERIAL KILLER’S GUIDE TO LIFE” now on Digital HD

January 13th, 2020 No comments

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

Quirky and twisted, A Serial Killer’s Guide to Life is one movie that will keep you wincing throughout the 81 minutes of mindboggling carnage. Once it gets started the movie becomes a roller coaster ride of death that’s not stopping to look back. It’s a very dark comedy and the actors are excellent at depicting the insanity as it rolls along to a surprise ending. Did I say the film is sadistic? The film is billed as another Thelma and Louise, but those two ladies in that movie were girl scouts compared to Lou and Valerie in A Serial Killer’s Guide to Life. Read more…

“Underwater” A Deep Disturbing Encounter

Review by John Delia

Not what I expected from the trailer, but the movie Underwater entertains. The cast does a very good job of delivering the excitement, the direction is right on the mark, but the story is somewhat worn-out from movies like Alien, Deepwater Horizon, The Poseidon Adventure, most of the shark attack films, San Andreas and especially The Meg to offer a few. However, that said the film is rated PG-13 and not a lot of the teens have seen the older disaster genre films. If you are into a lot of excitement that will have you gasping for air, then Underwater should do the trick. Read more…

“The Lighthouse” A Blistering Psychological Drama

Review by John Delia

Gripping, engaging, wicked and possessed the move The Lighthouse is one of the odds on favorites for an Oscar. The acting, directing and cinematography captivate the viewer with a story that so punishing you’ll leave the theater in a sweat. It’s one of those dramas that don’t come around too often and when they do they’re a must see. Bring your slicker and an umbrella as this film will blow you away. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Coming to the screen this weekend is the movie It Chapter Two, a continuation of the iconic horror flick. The movie not only frightened the world, but added to the  damper put on the comical caricatures that were so loved back in the day. This episode, however is basically a remake of the 3 hour two part TV Mini-Series that was released in 1990. This release does have amazing production value that far outweighs the TV presentation of the same film. I wish I hadn’t seen the TV show as therefore it’s a bit of a downer. Read more…

“Tone-Deaf” a Hellish Nightmare

Review by John Delia

Very brutal, the horror flick Tone-Deaf takes you into the confines of a hellish nightmare. Like most slasher films, this one follows the same formula of trapping someone in a secluded place and taunting them until the final coup de grace. The twist does make the film a bit better than some, but still just a bit above average. Read more…

“Ready or Not” Blood Runs Red

Review by John Delia

Just when you think you have seen every way a person can get killed in a horror flick, up pops Ready or Not. It’s one of the most diabolical blood baths that I’ve seen in several years. The movie’s a comedy however, and it does play out that way making the film one of the better of the genre. Nicely acted and directed, yet predictable, it’s how it gets to the end that’s the rollercoaster ride of ups and downs that entertains. Think the movie Get Out with lots more of the wicked craziness.

“Blood Paradise” Dripping with Horror

July 15th, 2019 No comments

 

Sometimes you can just write down an idea, develop some dialogue, rent a camera, purchase HD recording discs, find a couple of locations, get a pretty good make-up artist, hire several out of work actors and bring them all together for a few day’s work. Take the movie Blood Paradise for instance. This little indie film has it all and makes good use of every bit of help. Most horror fans are open to anything bloody, sexy and a simple storyline and this film has all of that. In fact, the director, who by the way acts in the movie, and his co-writer, who also acts in the movie, happen to fall into the “perfect storm” of movie making. The film’s a nice piece for your library so every time you want a good laugh and forget your troubles of the day, pull out the Blu-ray and just do it. Read more…

“Midsommar” a Carnal Retreat

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Not for everyone, the horror movie Midsommar has a lot of emotional angst combined with explicit brutal violence and sex. It’s much like the film Suspiria where the filmmakers invent hysteria through ugly CGI that turns humans into monsters, twist bones like pretzels and end their film with graphic nude witchery. And Midsommar’s just as bizarre. Read more…

“MA” a Diabolical Thriller

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…
