3.0 out of 5 stars Decent film by Wes Craven., 10 Feb. 2013
This review is from: Deadly Blessing [DVD] (DVD)
Horror stalwarts Wes Craven and Michael Berryman have collaborated on a few movies over the years. Sandwiched in between the two original `Hills Have Eyes' movies was Deadly Blessing, Wes Craven's fifth film after the t.v. movie Summer of Fear which was quite good actually if you can find a copy. Revolving around the Hittites, a religiously fanatical farming community who one character describes as making "the Amish look like swingers", Deadly Blessing opens with the murder of the son of the Hittites leader, who had already disappointed his father Isaiah Schmidt (Ernest Borgnine) by leaving the community to live with his wife Martha (Maren Jensen) on a nearby piece of land. As the widow attempts to get over her grief she is heavily hindered by the constant verbal abuse from the Hittites. They blame her for her husband's death and brand her as an Incubus for taking one of their own away from them. However, when two of her female friends (one of them is played by a young and hot Sharon Stone) come down from the city to stay and console her, things take a terrifying turn as the trio become terrorised by an unknown assailant who seems intent of terrifying and killing the women. As fingers are pointed from all sides the females fear for their lives and their sanity, desperate to discover who or what is behind their attacks and confront it before its too late. Crafting a creepy, atmospheric movie full of tension, intrigue and dream-like moments. Wes meshed that with slasher sensibilities, perfectly predicting the career trajectory he would set himself on for the coming years concluding in his two most famous films A Nightmare on Elm Street and Scream. Incorporating his trademark dream sequences; there is a particularly eerie scenario involving an open mouth and a falling spider, plus some memorable set pieces such as the unwelcome appearance of a snake during bath time. Overall it has some good acting, great country side atmosphere, the direction was great and the score was memorable. Only problem is the bizarre and cheesy ending which was a bit confusing and in my opinion unnecessary, still this movie is worth a look at Wes Craven's earlier work.
