Craving some Craven? This is ideal!,
This review is from: Deadly Blessing [DVD] (DVD)
Wes Craven is easily one of the greatest directors in all of horror cinema. Creating such incredible films as THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT, THE HILLS HAVE EYES, SCREAM and A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET its easy to forget about his lesser known gems and DEADLY BLESSING is among his best.
DEADLY BLESSING tells the story of an Amish community who are not as harmless as they first appear. The cast is top-notch (with Michael Berryman being my favourite of the bunch) as is the directing. For all you Craven buffs here, you'll be able to spot the many ideas and scenes that would later appear in the infamous A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET.
Overall, this is easily one of the best Craven films out there and is a must for all horror fans. It's amongst the best of relgious horror films such as THE EXORCIST, THE OMEN and CHILDREN OF THE CORN.
