“THE DARE” Horror on VOD

March 1st, 2020 No comments

 

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

Very ghastly and savage the horror flick The Dare is now available on VOD. The film reminded me of the first SAW movie especially the opening, but after that it’s a pretty good original plot. The indie team really used their main set well where most of the action takes place, but the horror scale raises the needle only about medium. If you are a fan of horror mystery, then you may want to check this one out. Read more…

“Ad Astra” Saving the Planet

Review by John Delia

The film Ad Astra may seem like an edge of your seat film with scenes that keep you enthralled, but there’s more to a movie than special effects. The storyline is actually too simple, leaves a lot of questions and becomes more of a travelogue than a drama. In IMAX the movie seems like a lot of the documentaries about space that show the space station, walking in space and much more. Unfortunately this ride takes you on a journey to nowhere and back more documentary fashion than exciting thrills. 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…

“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.

“Hotel Mumbai” Terror in India

Review by John Delia

A heart pounding experience, the film Hotel Mumbai stays with you well after you leave the theater. From the very beginning the feeling of dread and helplessness sets in as you watch the terrorist horror start to unfold. Before you know it you will be enveloped in the lives of people as they try to flee and hide from the gunmen. It’s a frightening experience, but one that’s a must see as the reality of it all can have easily been anywhere in the world. Read more…

“Arctic” Defying Death

Review by John Delia

A frost biting  film with some magnificent cinematography, Arctic puts its audience into survival mode. The film has a very good lone performance by Mads Mikkelsen that certainly is up there with his best. The storyline, however, has been done in many different locations including the snowbound wilderness of the Andes (Alive 1993), stuck on an island (Cast Away 2000), lost in a dessert (Gerry 2002), a rocky canyon (127 Hours 2010), stranded at sea (All Is Lost 2013), deserted in a rainforest (Jungle 2017), and many more. That said, for those that like a lot of suspense and deathly challenges, it doesn’t matter if you have seen the aforementioned as this one really works. Read more…

‘Glass’ A Remarkable Trilogy

By John M. Delia, Jr

What would the world be like if there were really super heroes? Their powers may not be so obvious for most to see. Like super human strength, amazing intelligence, and the ability to see the future. Would this be something we would all embrace? Remember if there is one special hero, there is always the opposite and that’s its villain. This third installment of the series will tie everything together. 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…

“IT” (Written Review & Trailer)

By John Delia, Sr.

The perfect horror film enters the darkened rooms of local cinemas this weekend and It should slice off the biggest chunk of change of the year thus far for a horror film. The movie’s screenplay, based on a book by the master of sick and twisted stories Steven King, is simply called It. The production proves very screen worthy, nicely acted and directed and hits the target audience on the bulls-eye. If terror and scary is your cup of tea, It is looking for you. Read more…
