“Hereditary” Evil in the House

June 7th, 2018 No comments

 

 

 

 

 

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…

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…

“Beirut” a Roller Coaster Ride

Review by John Delia, Sr.

This rollercoaster ride through war torn Lebanon in the movie Beirut, takes a few twists before getting to the meat of the story. Although a fictional narrative, the movie gives a somewhat realistic look at the challenges the country had faced during the 1970’s and early 1980. It’s not the heart of the movie however, but it gives you the lay of the land so the script makes more sense. Not the most convincing effort on film out there, but certainly a reminder of what went on in the Mideast in that period of time. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

The year kicks off with its first major action thriller The Commuter and it’s a barn burner. Total action after an introduction to the plot, the film takes you on the ride of your life with surprises on every turn. If you like gripping films that work on your mind to try and figure out who the perpetrator is and what they want, then this movie should be on the top of your list. And, its way better than last year’s Murder on the Orient Express. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Spy movies are a dime a dozen, but then one comes along that really takes you on an unexpected adventure. That’s the beauty of Stratton, an action packed film filled with excitement that’s fresh and different. It’s not James Bond or an episode of TV’s “24”, but a fun film that entertains with a bit of both. Read more…

Review by John Delia, Sr.

Up front I’ll tell you that the movie Happy Death Day has so many twists and turns that you would think you were on a wild ride at Universal Studios. The fun, but deadly storyline is a cross between Scary Movie and Groundhog Day and the maze of thrills will have you spooked out until the very end. Or what you think is the end, so don’t get up out of your seat until it’s ALL over. Again! and Again! Read more…

Turning the tables on a kidnapper can be a tough proposition even for the most experienced FBI men, but as the film Kidnap shows, do not underestimate a woman obsessed.

Intriguing and Compelling the movie Past Life adds another true event story to the long list of films on the Holocaust.
