Before Wes Craven unleashed Freddy Krueger upon the world he
gave us the story of vengeful amish/Mennonites in the super creepy, super
shocking, Deadly Blessing. Ernest
Borgnine is worth the price alone. <>>
Deadly Blessing isn’t as gory as some of Craven’s other
works. It plays more like a paranoia
thriller with horror elements than a straight up horror. That’s not to say it isn’t scary because it
does pack some great scares and genuine creep-outs. Not to mention the insane ending.<>>
The story, the cast, the directing are all top notch. I’d never heard of the movie (shameful being
as that I’m a big Craven fan) and I was super excited to see it. My excitement was rewarded as the movie is
great and Ernest Borgnine turns in a wonderfully evil performance.<>>
Scream Factory has delivered yet another wonderful
transfer. The picture is really
gorgeous. It sounds great. The effects look great and it really holds up
well. The country side and settings all
really look great with this transfer.<>>
Story: A / Super
unique and super fun watch. One of
Presentation: A / Gorgeous transfer makes Deadly Blessing
look brand new.
Scare Factor: A / Super creepy and a jaw dropping ending
that is excellent even by today’s standards.
Gore Factor: B /
Light on the gore, but that does not detract from the film in the least.
A / One of Craven’s best has a great place in anyone’s horror marathon
