This review is from: Deadly Blessing Dual Format [DVD + Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)
Much like Cravens other film beginning with Deadly, (Deadly Friend), this is a lost gem and should be sought out by all Craven fans.
Although the synopsis doesn't really give much away, the film really sticks it to minority religions, and makes the group almost seem 'children of the corn' like.
Borgnine is stunning as the leader of the group, and although it connotates that it's his doing, the reality is a little more bizarre.
Once the bloke from The Fall Guy gets killed, we are introduced to the main characters of the film. The lead, Sharon Stone, and some other woman, who all have different views and fears.
Although she is secondary in this movie, Stone arguably has the best and most haunting scenes involving spiders and a barn.
It's not a scary movie by any means, and it's a stretch to call it a Horror, but it just has this strange sense of unease throughout the whole movie.
Berryman is just,in the film to pull fans in, and you can understand why Craven hates this ending, as it's just so out of context with the rest of the film.
So for Craven completists, it's a must, and for anyone else, it's a good thriller, with some great lighting, set pieces, but an iffy ending.
