“THE PALE DOOR” Hell, Fire & Damnation

August 21st, 2020 No comments

 

 

Review by John Delia

Mixing the western genre with some horror and thrills seems like a good thing. In the film The Pale Door however, the genre mix is good, but the story loses its punch early on when you get to figure it all out. A bit predictable and clichéd, when the evil begins it’s more mindless than shocking. The sets look like From Dusk Till Dawn except that series had vampires instead of witches. If you haven’t seen Robert Rodriguez’s films or the TV series “From Dusk Till Dawn”, then by all means jump into the fray with The Pale Door. Read more…

“UNCLE PECKERHEAD” A Killer Thriller

Written Review by John Delia

(also check out Al McGhee’s video chat with director Matthew John Lawrence here at Your Entertainment Ticket)

When you think of a horror film you expect a lot of mayhem, monsters and ghastly scenes, and in the movie Uncle Peckerhead you get all three. The film targets not only the fear fan, but this one works on another level, hard rock music. All in fun, the movie starts out with a slide BASED ON A TRUE STORY and then proceeds to bring out the ghoul and bloody mess that ensues. The film has been released in select theaters so check your local listings. Read more…

“BLACK WATER: ABYSS” Trapped with Crocks

Review by John Delia

The film Black Water: Abyss has a pretty good suspense storyline, but that’s if you haven’t seen the original that spawned this sequel. The crocks are back and they are as mean as ever waiting to feed on new meat. This time they are looking to snag some unaware spelunkers. The film is available in some theaters and at home on VOD.

“THE RENTAL” A Killer of a Thriller

Review by John Delia

A few days ago we posted a review of one of the best horror flicks this year and I hold to that opinion. However, The Rental that opens tomorrow is equally as good with all the trappings of being even a tad better. The film sets up its audience in a cunning way to hide any future happenings in a mystery that takes an odd twist as the credits roll. Two in a row shows the power of some independents that with a help of good directing can deliver excellent movies to their fan base. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Gritty and horrifying the film Body Cam takes you into the lives of police officers that find themselves tracking a mystical killer. Haunting at times, the film features excellent production values that add to the thrilling storyline. Nicely directed, acted and choreographed it’s available for home viewing on DVD and Digital. If you like your terror with a lot of violence and mystery, this crafty script will treat you to plenty of it. Read more…

“BELZEBUTH” Killers from Hell

Review by John Delia

Not a bad release, the film Belzebuth containing the reference to a Satanic character similar to Beelzebub, has some good horror moments, a lot of very good visual effects and make-up, relatively nice acting, and a creative storyline. Differing from anything I have seen in the past about the dark lord of hell, the Mexican connection, with its Night of the Living Dead mystique, adds a nice touch. However, all that said, the film does have some of the most diabolical killing scenes involving young children and babies that gets sickening to watch. Be forewarned that if you are squeamish, easily nauseated by a lot of blood, or immature, than you may want to steer clear of the film. Read more…

Sick and Twisted at “TWO HEADS CREEK”

Review by John Delia

A very cool sick and twisted horror comedy Two Heads Creek takes you on the road to Australia for a reunion. Nicely written, acted and directed, if you like wicked bloody action, this one will have you rolling on the floor. A bit over the top, but who’s counting heads in this sordid tale from the “Down Under”? Read more…

“FRIDAY THE 13TH” 40TH Anniversary Steelbook

June 15th, 2020 No comments

Review by John Delia

Now here’s a cool home video for those who like horror thriller movies, Friday the 13th (1980) the 40th Anniversary of the original release uncut in a Steelbook Blu-ray with Digital code. It has a long list of special features, a face-lift for the film and sound pumped up to tickle your audio systems. The film’s biggest accomplishment was the paranoia that the film created with audiences leaving theaters and looking behind them before entering their cars at night. Or even looking under their bed before going to sleep. Well at an early age it did that for me anyway and it took a couple of days to not think about it anymore. Read more…

“ONE CUT OF THE DEAD” Blood and Zombies

Review by John Delia

Very campy and a bit over the top, the film One Cut of the Dead is out on DVD and a DVD/Blu-ray Steelbook. The film tells the story of a zombie takeover at a deserted water plant as the director is making a movie about zombies. It’s very unique and a fun watch if you can stick with it. If you like the absurd, than this comedy/horror flick may just be your cup of Saki. Read more…

“CREEPSHOW: Season One” Tales of Terror

Review by John Delia

Definitely a guilty pleasure, the series Creepshow has released their first Season on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital. Yes it’s very creepy as the title suggests and it even has a lot of cool stories that are totally ludicrous in a good way to make you laugh. What makes this collective body of work extra special however, is the comic book style introductions and the very hideous monsters you’ll be exposed to. You’ll want to watch it a second time in about 6 months. Read more…
