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..
Did you know? You could get this movie from DVD Locker as part of our subscription service.. want to know more? Find out here
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.
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!

‘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.
