Scream Factory isnít just about the classics.  Theyíve also brought us some more
contemporary titles.    Well two so
far.  The first of which is a film that
first aired on Chiller called Dead Souls.   
Donít let that scare you off (like it almost did me) though.<>
Dead Souls<>
The Film:  <>
Dead Souls tells the story of a young man who learns not
only that he is adopted but that he is the last survivor of a horrific mass
murder.  He finds himself in possession
of his familyís old home so he moves and in doing so unleashes the horrors that
cursed his family 18 years before.  <>
Iíll admit I had my apprehensions about this one.  Being a TV movie carries a certain stigma and
with Dead Souls it appears that my apprehension was misplaced.  Itís a well-acted and well done little horror
film that I enjoyed.<>
Itís not perfect and itís not going to go down in the
pantheon of horror classics but it is a movie you wonít regret watching.  <>
The Disc:<>
I donít think Scream Factory had much to do with this
one.   Itís a newer movie so the picture
shouldnít have any annoying artifacts or issues to deal with and it
doesnít.  Itís another nice disc from SF
and while it doesnít have the history one might want from a release like this
it does coming with some nice features, even if theyíre a bit by the numbers.<>
The Features:<>
  • Audio Commentary<>
  • Bloopers<>
  • Tour of the Set<>
  • TV Spots<>
  • <>
    The Specs:<>
  • 1080p High-Definition Widescreen (2.35:1)<>
  • DTS HD Master Audio 5.1<>
  • Original Release: 2013<>
  • Runtime: 92 Minutes<>
  • Rating: Not Rated<>
  • Final Grades:<>
    Story:  B / Interesting story with some nice twists/<>
    Presentation:  A / Looks great as it should since itís a
    newer film.<>
    Scare Factor:  B / Some good jumps make for a good late
    night watch.<>
    Gore Factor:  B / Pretty good for a TV movie.  Iím sure the added 7 minutes helped with the
    gore.<>
    Repeat view-ability:
    C / Itís good yes, but itís not a classic. 
    I enjoyed it but I doubt itíll be one Iíll watch again.   <>
