3.0 out of 5 stars unusual setting for a horror, 25 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Deadly Blessing [DVD] (DVD)
Horror films set in the old West are rare, and this early Wes Craven offering has a kind of unique feeling to it, as sophisticated city types clash with the ancient ways of the Hittites, strictly religious folk who don't welcome the unbelievers and strangers to their land.

Those who stray from the good path are consumed by an "incubus" rising from the fields to take the godless away to purgatory.

Lots of thee-ing and thou-ing in the dialogue to suggest an old time world, despite the film being set in 1981, and it is fun to see Ernest Borgnine in such a film - chewing the scenery.

A few interesting touches here and there and only some very minor gore, set this out as a mood piece rather than the average slasher, which is no bad thing. There are a number of odd sub-plots that don't seem to quite fit with the main story flow, and the final appearance of the incubus does seem to sit opposite what the entire rest of the film has tried to set up, but all in all this isn't a bad little film.
