Doorway & Knocking on Death's Door [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Doorway & Knocking on Death's Door [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Dvd ~ David Carradine
Offered by EliteDigital UK
Price: 21.97

3.0 out of 5 stars TWO GHOST STORIES FOR ONE PRICE, 27 Aug 2014
Knocking on Death's Door:

Brad (Brian Bloom) and Danielle (Kimberly Rowe) are a newlywed couple who are ghost hunters. Brad is the scientist while Danielle was the ability to contact the other side. They occupy a haunted house for their honeymoon only to discover the ghost reacts violently whenever anyone makes love in the house. They want to know why.

David Carradine plays the local doctor..

This is a fairly decent linear ghost story that is light on fright. Has a made for TV drama feel to it.

Sex and nudity (Kimberly Rowe)

Doorway:

A bumbling electrician accidentally knocks down a loosely placed shield and allows a demon to escape. Four college kids opt to make some money by cleaning the place, become annoyed by the poorly manicured demon who is clearly sexual and liked the hand from "Evil Dead 2." Suzanne Bridgman showers, dirty Lauren Woodland does not.

Minor camp value. Sex and nudity

Not a bad 1-2 punch of haunted house ghost stories. Just don't expect too much.

Flesh Eating Mothers [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Dvd ~ Ken Eaton

2.0 out of 5 stars CHEWED OUT BY MOM, 27 Aug 2014
The film has a clever idea. An STD is transmitted from Roddy Douglas (Louis Homyak) to all of his conquests. The virus turns women who have had children in flesh eaters including super human strength and zombie teeth.

The film had Troma style body parts and blood squirts, but lacked the character and dialogue to be a cult classic.

Okay as a rental.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No nudity. Adult themes. "Breathless" is a superior film.

2.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS MY COLLAR, 27 Aug 2014
This review is from: Let's Be Cops [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Two guys from Ohio haven't made it in LA and plan on returning. Ryan (Jake Johnson) a former Purdue QB relives his glory days, but doesn't have a job. Justin (Damon Wayans Jr.) is a video designer who has designed a cop patrol game. Our duo use the uniforms for a masquerade party and discover the perks of being policemen. Unfortunately they cross paths with a crime boss (James D'Arcy) leading to an improbable turn of events.

I failed to find the humor in the film. This is apparently made for teens. The humor was lowbrow crotch in the face screaming man type of stuff. I was bored with a formulaic film that lacked any kind of clever writing or dialogue.

Parental Guide: F-bombs. No sex. Male nudity.

1.0 out of 5 stars DID YOU SEE THAT!, 27 Aug 2014
This 69 minute film comes across as a TV series or pilot. This movie is apparently one very lame episode. The description on the DVD cover tells you what they find, although the write up is an extreme amount of hype with nothing scary about the film. A chair moves across the floor, about 6 inches. Thermal hand prints on the wall...ooooh scary. A marker and pencil drops from the ceiling...serious scary. And as the DVD states, a thermal image of an apparition...too much, I am about ready to pass out.

Horribly lame film footage.

No swearing, or nudity.

3.0 out of 5 stars IT'S DENNIS LILLY!, 26 Aug 2014
This review is from: Wolf Creek 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Our killer/slasher Mick is back doing what he does best. The victims come into the film and lack any decent introduction. They are there simply to get killed, forget about and type of character or plot.

Mick is good to watch or listen to, but other than that the film was at best a mediocre slasher...except for maybe that head shot.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. No sex or nudity. Mick gropes victim.

2.0 out of 5 stars YOU'RE OK. I'M NOT OKAY., 24 Aug 2014
This review is from: Memory Lane [DVD] (DVD)
Nick Boxer (Michael Guy) comes home from Afghanistan and takes a radio into a bathtub. He dies and has a memory flashback, being with Kayla (Meg Barrick) his dead fiancee. This does not bode well with his wife and friends. His friends indulge Nick as he wants to play "Flatliners" at home in a bathtub, but after a few times, they are reluctant to do it. Nick believes he can save her.

The film is short. The acting was mediocre, with Nick being outright bad. The dialogue had no zip and the characters were cardboard. The film stretches to 70 minutes with the credits.

Parental Guide: Brief sex scene. No visible nudity.

3.0 out of 5 stars ALL GOD'S CHILDREN GOT SHOES, 24 Aug 2014
This review is from: Cursed [DVD] (DVD)
The US title, "Devil Incarnate" and DVD cover are misleading. The UK title is "Cursed" which is keeping to the film. The movie opens with narration during the credits. A curse is placed on a family line. They would be infertile unless they sacrificed or "cut out a child." We then see a bunch of hand held camera shots along with normal filming. Trevor (Rod Luzzi) and Holly (Graci Carli) are newlyweds traveling in Florida filming their honeymoon. Through a series of circumstances Holly meets a woman fortune teller (Barbara Van Fleet) that sends her screaming and then discovers she is pregnant. They move into his parent's house, which they gave them as a gift.

Soon weird things happen and Holly's behavior becomes erratic. Marissa, (Emily Rogers) is Trevor's highs school lesbian semi-goth sister who has a thing for Holly as well as a snoop who investigates her past.

The film offers nothing new and exciting to the evil baby films. The acting was on par for a "B" horror film. It had potential, but didn't capitalize on it. No special effect scenes. Nothing that seems supernatural. Let's keep it in budget.

A so-so rental for the Cassadaga crowd.

Parental Guide: F-bomb. One sex scene. Near shower nudity.

Dead On Appraisal [DVD] [2014] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
Dvd ~ Nicholas Leonard

1.0 out of 5 stars JUST A FLESH WOUND, 24 Aug 2014
John Dante (Mike Pfaff) is a real estate agent attempting to sell a cursed house in this Brain Damage "Creepshow" style production. The house provides a common element for 3 separate tales.The first tale involves an alien insect infecting humans during a home break-in. The second episode involves a PTSD victim. The third is about a death metal band who hallucinates goblins, or whatever they were.

The film utilizes colored filters for many of the monster/special effect scenes. The props consist of rubber masks and gallons of fake blood. The film attempts to go after the cheese, but had difficulty making simple puns. The dialogue and acting were both bad.

Not a good rental. Watch at your own risk.

Parental Guide: f-bombs (all episodes). No sex or nudity
