So let’s get down to business today we are reviewing the Movie ‘Stories To Tell In The Dark’ directed by andré øvredal. This Movie is pretty new out of the charts (released 2019)  and maybe one that has slipped under the radar of people as I don’t personally recall this being advertised prior to launch, this movie is horror / mystery / Thriller.

Small Snippet: The Movie starts back in halloween in 1968, when Stella who portrays a recluse young girl and her 2 close friends find a mysterious character Ramón who is from out of town and not known to anyone. Now with the 4 of them they discover a personal notebook that is full of sinister stories. This movie starts very quickly and straight away you have that sense of dread when they Stella and her 2 friends make a quick escape and end up sitting in Ramón’s car. As the tale further unfolds you witness the intense, scary and dark themes that run throughout. This Movie contains; Flashing images, Dark themes, vivid characters and a bold narrative. The Movie has a runtime of: 108 minutes.

The Storyline: The Movie is based back in 1968 in an American small town called Mill Valley, all the locals of the town know about the ‘Bellows’ family and this has been something that has loomed ever since. The story of the bellows involves a daughter called Sarah who was a young girl who held some very dark secrets. Sarah was tortured in the family mansion situated just on the outskirts of the town, Sarah turned the horrific events she had faced and wrote them in a book in the means of scary stories. When Stella and her group breaks into the mansion and discover the actual book that Sarah has written it gets a little close to home for the group as the stories within become a lot more real and a lot more deadly. Can Stella and her group get to the bottom of this? Can they get rid of the book? Or put it back where it belong..

Our Views: This Movie grips you from the very beginning, the narrative throughout is very strong and easy to understand. The Movie is fast paced, and gets quite dark and jumpy in parts too. The characters are played very well indeed, and the effects and imagery throughout is very vivid and lifelike. As watching this Movie I felt like I was taken back to my childhood days with the TV series ‘Are You Afraid Of The Dark’ of course this was a lot more of a grown ups version. You instantly connect with the characters and at parts are shouting at the TV screen to try and stop the characters doing the wrong thing. This Movie is very enjoyable, well written and has just that perfect balance of dark/gore and horror. Some parts are quite comical.

Final Thoughts: Personally I would say this Movie is worthy of a brilliant night in cuddled up with the curtains closed and lights off. This Movie will appeal to most audiences due to the strong narrative and easy to understand storyline along with the very lifelike characters. The effects used in this Movie are brilliant and does look very real indeed. I also like that the Movie is set in olden times which makes this that little bit different from the new age horror flicks. I just wished they carried on the storyline. With saying that the Movie ends on a cliff hanger and room to add a sequel. If you love a Movie that is clear, precise and grips you from the off – then this Movie is sure to a treat for you, mix that with the added dark scenes and horrific and somewhat disturbing images.

Well hello readers, welcome to DVD Locker Insider! We write about Movie reviews so you can have an insight to some of the latest, greatest (and of course not so great) Movies.

We are reviewing the Movie ‘Crawl’ directed by Alexandre Aja, an american horror / disaster movie.

Small Snippet: This Movie follows the story of a daughter (Hayley)  and father (Dave) and their 4 legged friend their dog, they are trapped and hunted by alligators during a category 5 hurricane, so as the house is flooding more and more both Hayley and Dave need to fight for their lives to get out! Can they escape without being eaten? This Movie does start off pretty much straight away and before you know it you are engrossed in with the action. This Movie contains, scenes of action, flashing images and minor gore and bloody scenes. The movie has a run-time of: 87 minutes.

The Storyline: Confident swimmer Hayley played by Kaya Scodelario drives directly into the heart of a category 5 destructive hurricane taking a detour from her hometown in Florida, to check on her distant Father, Dave played by Barry Pepper as shes frantically looking around the house for Dave, she finds clues that he is in the house somewhere or other. Once Hayley finds Dave thanks to the dog, both of them come face to face with.. Alligators swimming and walking around. The house is slowly sinking and filling up with water as the water levels are rising, its only a matter of time to get out without being eaten alive!?

Our Views: This Movie on the whole was fairly enjoyable, and quite fast paced right from the opening scene, there is a good narrative within too which is a plus. The effects was really good and very much looked real. However I found in certain scenes the Movie did seem a little slow, with that aside the Movie on the while was a good watch and did provide some nice evening entertainment, the Movie is not exactly scary but does provide a good action based fit. On the positive side you have a few scenes where you can really get through your popcorn without jumping and dropping it everywhere. Based on a very simple narrative this Movie is very easy to understand right from the offset. At times you will find yourself shouting at the TV to try and stop the characters onscreen making the wrong choices.

Final Thoughts: I would say this Movie is great for evening entertainment for most people, especially if you like natural disaster Movies and of course dangerous Alligators. The narrative is clear and simple to understand so you won’t feel ‘lost’ or ‘confused’ which is refreshing for some viewers. I really like the effects as it all does seem very real so the CGI used within was quite frankly amazing! If you are into your action Movies and love great effects and a real strong and easy to understand story-line then this Movie is for you!

Thanks for reading DVD Locker Insider… We are going to kick this off with a Bold, Brilliant and truly Dark Movie ‘Joker’ directed by Todd Phillips.

Small Snippet: This movie has been derived from the standalone fictional character ‘The Joker’ and the first time the character has been brought to the big screens of you and me.. This Movie is deeply dark, brutal and of course very much storyled. Please take note that this movie does contain; Sexual Images, Bloody Violence, Bad Language and Disturbing Scenes. Total runtime for this Movie is: 122 minutes.

The Storyline: Arthur Fleck who might we add is played brilliantly by Joaquin Phoenix is someone who is genuinely struggling to find his way in society in Gotham. He aspires to become a night standup comic, but finds the jokes and laughs backfire to him, by day he can be hired out as a clown. Trying to do good, but nothing goes right for Arthur always getting knocked back, ridiculed and put down by others one day he makes a bad decision which starts a horribly gritty chain reaction as the horrific events unfold.. it’s payback!

Our Views: We thought this Movie was pure brilliance, watching someone put on ‘A happy face’ and see them turning into a complete horrific monster right in front of our very eyes, this Movie is very dark, and won’t please all audience types due to the dark, gritty nature of this but when you put together the storyline and actors you really do have a winning combination. Starting off the Movie makes the viewer feel pitiful towards Arthur and at times I actually felt sorry for ‘Joker’ however that soon changes when he goes down the wrong path and makes some bad decisions, almost instantly you get freaked out, scared and actually feel pretty terrified towards the very same character. Outstandingly played by Joaquin, Arthur / Joker really does bring allow the viewer to draw in on some very mixed emotions to say the least! This movie is very different to the standard newly released titles that have overused CGI and effects with less of a storyline, this movie does this particularly well and tells the story in depth (and of course in a very graphic way indeed) If you remember the Joker from the comic days, he is exceptionally played by Joaquin and you can see he has put his all into this performance as it really does show.

Get ready to jump on this emotional rollercoaster, you will laugh, feel pity and will be terrified with what is about to unfold.. Some scenes even I had to watch with one eye open, with part of me wanting not to look, but HAD to this Movie really does pull you in from the offset, this film officially brings the DC Comics character to LIFE.

If your thinking this is your typical everyday superhero Movie, then think again this is more along the lines of a bloody, dark and gritty Physcological Thriller / Horror and that just happens to evolve around a truly brilliant comic character of the ‘Joker’.

You will see the happy go lucky kind of guy, slowly turn to the dark side due to everyone else treating him bad, Arthur is lonely, confused and just wants to aspire and make something out of his life but with all the pushbacks, bullying and outright ridicules one day he just… snaps.

Some might describe this as ‘Disturbing’ and ‘Violent’ however we all knew from growing up the Joker was never a nice guy, so we had to surely think that some element when this film was released that this would live up to the ‘Joker’ name.

Final Thoughts: I would highly rate this film for those who dare watch this amazing movie, with the truly outstanding performance of Arthur Fleck, mix that with the very marvel like cinematography and dark musical notes and you’ll really appreciate just how good this movie really is. Just take in mind once the movie is finished and the credits are rolling on, you might noticing yourself (and anyone else watching for that matter) have a moment of silence, to allow everything you have just witnessed to sink back in.  I would like to finish with saying watch this movie with a very open mind, and don’t think or dwell to much on what your about to watch, this is one of those movies that you can actually re-visit and still experience the same emotions and feelings each and every time!
