Brawl in cell block 99 … ( 2017) wow definitely a brutal movie and what a storyline !!!

I’m not a fan of violent movies but this had a great story line … Vince Vaughn was amazing as Bradley Thomas … what an actor I’m used to him portraying the fumbling nice guy , think again in this he’s definitely the hard guy .. blown away by his acting . A prison thriller with a twist …. a movie full of great actors , Don Johnson is fun to watch , in fact all the actors were on point . Want to watch a gritty violent movie with a twist?🤨 Then I definitely recommend this wonderful movie

Borderlands (2013) is definitely one of my favourite scary movies . A group are sent to a church to investigate a miracle from the Vatican. It’s a movie that grabs you early on , the unease building throughout the movie . Visually very cool . No spoilers from me but if your a fan of horror / supernatural this is definitely worth a watch. Gordon Kennedy / Deacon is absolutely awesome to watch . In fact all the actors are great . This isn’t a big budget movie and may of gone unnoticed… wake up call guys this movie is definitely worth watching..

Fanboys (2009) is my go to movie to watch and guaranteed to make me smile . It’s definitely one of my feel good movie favourites. It’s a definite must watch for Star Wars fans and keep your eyes peeled for the cameos . So the story is based on a group of hard core fans of Star Wars and their raid on sky Walker ranch . I love the references to Star Trek too and being a fan of both , it certainly made me giggle , it’s a movie that pokes fun at fandom in a kind way and anyone whose dabbled in the convention scene will have definitely met characters like this 😁 I loved Dan Fogler aka Hutch… his character was a hoot , made me laugh … in fact all the actors/ characters were wonderful .
I’m not going to give away the story lines … just take my word for it …. it’s definitely worth a watch , there’s a nerd in every one of us…

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!

3/5 Stars

As we explained in our previous post here

Before we go ahead to the review if you are looking for a new, value for money Film service (That you keep the DVDs and Blurays we send) then visit our website here and join the many happy customers we currently serve.

REVIEW:

‘Don’t say it, don’t think it. Don’t say it, don’t think it. Don’t say it, don’t think it’ – These are the words the characters in this Horror style film say when they are trying to See the ‘Bye Bye Man’ the story is three college students move into an old house off campus, they unwittingly unleash a supernatural entity known as The Bye Bye Man, who comes to prey upon them once they discover his name. The friends must try to save each other, all the while keeping The Bye Bye Man’s existence a secret to save others from the same deadly fate. This film is pretty good, and full of uneasy moments and some jumpy parts too, if you love a good horror film then this is perfectly good viewing for your Saturday night in!

In the late 1960s, a man mysteriously murders all those closest to him after he finds that they have merely uttered the name of a murderous entity. In the present day, several millennials move into this house, which is just off campus, and begin to experience mysterious events that freak them out. They too become aware of the existence of ‘the Bye Bye Man’, and learn if they even think or say his name, they will be inviting death upon themselves.

If you like films such as Candyman or Bogeyman then you will love this title.

We rate this film quite highly, as from the very start to finish you are encapsulated in the unknown and can feel the horror and the tension right from the very start, this film is very fast paced with lots of different storylines that become one, this film is similar to the likes of Candyman or similar, by summoning death simply by saying the name ‘The Bye Bye Man’ It’s simple to follow, and there are plenty of scares. It’s not too complicated so it doesn’t get tangled up in itself.

This film is fairly low budget in this day and age it did well. The acting was good, the plot was intense and the twists were brilliant.If they had a higher budget I’m sure they could have done even better, and I’m sure a sequel would do well.

If you are looking for a full on Bloody and Gory movie then this wouldn’t be for you, however if you are looking for a Scary, Fast paced and Physiological film then this really could provide you with a great standard Horror Film alternative.

As you know we are fanatics about Film here! We Simply LOVE films as this is our Core-business, and so when where out of office, we are watching the newest and some old films, well last night myself and partner was flicking through the Sky Movies Demand service, and came across a film called K-Shop the picture looked pretty cool, so thought why not give it a whirl..

Well its quite a long film, (120mins) to be precise, so 2 hours like a Lord Of The Rings Sequel!

Seeing that it was pure British, we though’t we would venture in and watch it, basically the film is about A horror film with a message. This is not going to be for everyone but it’s the modern version of the Sweeney Todd and not to mention British story except that Sweeney is an immigrant that faces drunk people in his kebab shop he opens with his father. When some drunk are trying to enter the shop and the father got killed Salah goes Mental, and wants to seek revenge for the death of his father But there’s more going on.

The film starts off very well normal big city Saturday night drunkenness, then there are some parts of the film where they do drag out (just a little), the story isn’t bad though, the fact that there’s a Kebab shop who serve up more than Kebab meat is definitely something to watch, the first scene did look like we was watching SAW.

The characters are very believable in this too – which is always a good point.

To Sum it up: This film is definitely worthy of a watch, we did enjoy it just seemed to go on and on and on (you get the drift), but if your looking for alternative horror then this film is probably for you. Least now we can say we have watched it, and hence the review so we can tell our Avid Readers what we thought of it.

So it’s that time again, film time, we don’t open on Sundays so today was our closest day to blog about it, but as always myself and partner sat down to our daily evening film and we decided to watch; The Good Neighbour – Now normally this really isn’t my cup of tea at all because I cannot stand Camcorder films not sure why but they just make things look a little low budget (apart from Cloverfield which I LOVED) and a little amateur!

Anyway for some reason this film did catch my eye, so I thought lets give it a shot..

So here is my personal review on ‘The Good Neighbour’

So basically the film is about – The Good Neighbour has both drama and suspense as standard the film is a crime-thriller. It reminded me a bit of “I Am Not a Serial Killer”, it is written and filmed in an extraordinarily sophisticated  style and will exceed most viewers initial expectations, as i stated earlier EVEN for me as I normally don’t do camcorder films!

There are teen friends, one whom has wealth and technical expertise at his disposal and his eyes on MIT, and his friend who has plenty of ingenuity and fortitude and interest in social research but is from a “broken home”. The pair undertake a social-psychological experiment, and use the grouchy, solitary old grump of the neighborhood as their unwitting subject. For their experiment, they equip the old grumps home with numerous hidden cameras and electrical devices in order to manipulate the grumps home appliances, fixtures, gadgets and such. They are then able to remotely control and view everything that occurs, pretty technical right!?

They soon realize that the old man is a rather unusual subject. He has a basement securely locked from the outside, a mysterious visiting woman, no apparent fear towards the extreme tactics they make to convince him he’s haunted, and he’s unpredictability violent and destructive. One teen begins to regret conducting the experiment, the other one is determined that the old man is hiding a dark secret, personally I thought he was either torturing someone or keeping them held hostage.. The teens watch, record and attempt to manipulate the old man for weeks in hopes of revenge, online views, and uncovering the old mans secrets.

Throughout the film there are segments where a prosecutor speaks to and interrogates different people on the witness stand. This makes it clear that the “experiment” didn’t play out so well. This film had me hypothesizing and thoroughly engaged, the whole film kept my mind guessing what was the actual plot and drama of it, as it was unclear, as it kept going back to a court case, so we knew someone was in trouble but for what ?

This film is well worth a watch, I personally loved it! It was very cleverly written and performed, and the fact it was a camcorder film well that just wins it for me. Maybe watch this one, its starts pretty much straight away and has a simple storyline to follow, you can also relate to the characters of the movie (always good)
