“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…

Review by John Delia

Wow, this indie film Dreamland came out of nowhere and it really puts the combination of crime/horror/fantasy genres in a very good place. Nicely directed, written and acted, the film takes you into the minds of some very evil protagonists and antagonists. Hard to define who is the wickedest, once the film begins it’s a diabolical whirlwind. Read more…

Review by John Delia

“There was a little girl, who had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead. When she was good, she was very good indeed, but when she was bad she was horrid.” Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

One of the best thrillers this year Becky turns her world upside down and sideways. Nicely directed and written the incredible tale takes you into the mind of a 13-year-old who is hell bent on saving her father by turning her sorrow into some quick thinking vengeance. Don’t mess with this pissed off teen! On Demand and Digital June 5th. Read more…

Review by John Delia

The mystery thriller Inheritance takes the stage on VOD and it’s a killer! Nicely acted and directed, the film moves along at a good pace getting the audience involved in the plot early on with a death in the family before getting to a critical point in the storyline. From there on out it’s a barn-burner to a twisted finale that kicks butt. Read more…

“TIGERS ARE NOT AFRAID” Disturbing and Heartbreaking

May 15th, 2020 No comments

 

Review by John Delia

“Since the beginning of the Mexican drug wars in 2006, 160,000 people have been killed and 53,000 have disappeared in Mexico. Entire areas of some cities are turning into ghost towns. There are no numbers for many children dead and the missing that have been left behind.” The Producers

Taking you into the slums of a small town in Mexico, the movie Tigers are Not Afraid brings you up-close to a group of destitute children orphaned by a narcotics and human trafficking gang. Told from one young girl’s viewpoint, it’s a very heartbreaking and disturbing film that’s well made with very good direction, acting and visually powerful cinematography. Read more…

“BLOOD AND MONEY” Cold Cash

Review by John Delia

This crime drama gets too familiar too fast even if the setting and characters are reasonably original. Blood and Money takes the formula of “what would you do” if you came across a bag of cash from a bank robbery and no one was looking? It’s a premise that works well on paper, but in this case the timeline works against the character’s whereabouts and the consequences are expected and predictable. Read more…

“THE WRETCHED” Beware the Horror

Review by John Delia

This scary little film The Wretched has a very evil monster that certainly does a good job of upping the freight gage. The story may be a bit familiar as there have been plenty a horror flick with the same idea, but the way the film starts and develops produces the entertainment needed for the fan base. Now at Drive-in Theaters, Digital and on VOD. Read more…

“THE NIGHT CLERK” now on DVD

Review by John Delia

A twisted tale The Night Clerk is now available on DVD and it’s a stunner. The film should have audiences engrossed from the very start to its surprise finale. While all the clues are laid out for you before midpoint, the writer/director holds back just enough in this mystery to make the movie a winner. Acting is sharp and pin point, the direction strong and impeccable, and the credible protagonist in the plot makes for the perfect thriller. Read more…

Review by John Delia

Actually very good, the movie Clover takes you on a wild ride as two brothers and a young lady try to get themselves free from the mob. It’s very well made, has some excellent twists and it’s not only a thriller, but a bit comical as well. Once the action starts, it never ends until the last twisted scene. Now available on VOD.

“TAPE” Stolen Dreams

Review by John Delia

Creepy and candid the true story Tape tells an explicit tale of the casting couch. It may not be a definitive look at recent events, but what does come to pass is a realistic view of one woman’s bane affected by a scam. Its show business at its lowest level of taking advantage of a young movie star wannabe who thinks she has struck gold. Openly informative while entertaining as a narrative, the film should scare sex tape scammers while warning bogus casting directors that it won’t be as easy as it was to steal ones dreams. Read more…
