“THE SONATA” Mysterious and Haunting

March 3rd, 2020 No comments

 

 

 

Review by John Delia

A cool film that mixes music with fear, The Sonata takes you into a world surrounded by evil and death. Nicely written to move along at a slow pace, the production, location and the sets play a big part in this mystery for fans of the genre. It’s the kind of movie that you can relax at home alone or with a loved one on a dark evening with nowhere to go. But beware, The Sonata is a cunning film that’s best served with company. Read more…

“THE DARE” Horror on VOD

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…

“THE INVISIBLE MAN” Reignited

February 29th, 2020 No comments

 

By Brent Lorentson

It wasn’t all that long ago that Universal was seriously attempting to develop a Dark Universe for their classic monsters. Things changed after the releases of Dracula Untold and The Mummy after their poor box office showings, but having seen those two films, I feel fans were spared in the long run from a disaster that could have been.  Then in 2019 word got out that Blumhouse was going to be doing The Invisible Man, and this somewhat reignited the talks of a Dark Universe project.  When I first heard Blumhouse was backing the film, I was cautiously optimistic about the project; where the company does have its hits like Happy Death Day and Get Out, there are plenty of duds as well.  It’s when Leigh Whannell got attached and I had some hope for the film.  For those unfamiliar with the name, Whannell is the writer responsible for the Saw franchise as well as the Insidious franchise.  Now the wait is over and the film has been seen; how does it turn out?

“Mon Mon Mon Monsters!” Ghoulish and Gagging

Review by John Delia

Disgusting and very violent the movie Mon Mon Mon Monsters! has a one of a kind plot that should have you cringing and retching, and those are the good parts. If you are a fan of horror that likes films that repulses more than it scares, then you can revel in this “monsterpiece” that comes out today on Blu-ray and DVD. When you do get a copy, slide the video into your player, step back away from the TV set, take a deep breath, make sure you have a barf bucket handy and press play. Read more…

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

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…

“It Chapter Two” Pennywise Returns

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.
