OverviewJust when you thought it was safe to go back to camp...here's even more heart-pounding terror. Five years after the horrible bloodbath at Camp Crystal Lake, all that remains is the legend of Jason Vorhees and his demented mother, who had murdered seven camp counsellors. At a nearby summer camp, the new counsellors are unconcerned about the warnings to stay away from the infamous site. Carefree, the young people roam the area, not sensing the ominous lurking presence. Ony by one, they are attacked and brutally slaughtered. Suspense and screams abound in this compelling thriller.

A History of Violence, a review by DJ Doena



Viggo Mortensen    ...    Tom Stall
Maria Bello   ...    Edie Stall
Ed Harris   ...    Carl Fogarty
William Hurt   ...    Richie Cusack
Ashton Holmes   ...    Jack Stall

Synopsis: Tom Stall is a simple man. He lives in a small town and owns a small diner. He has two children and his life is quiet. But that changes one day. One day two armed robbers come into his store. He can't know this but they've left a trail of blood and killed a lot of people. Tom is willing to give them all the money but when one of them attempts to rape a women a switch turns in Tom's head and he attacks and kills the robbers. This makes him famous and suddenly he gets visits from mobsters from the east coast who think he is someone else - or are they correct?

My Opinion: This is a very interesting movie that has no hollywood-like moral agenda. It's brutal, it's explicit and it doesn't want to hide anything. The "good guy" isn't a good guy at all, but if they would have left him alone, he would have never bothered them at all. I thought everyone played their role very well, from Viggo who has at first to pretend he doesn't know anything to Maria and Ashton who have to learn that their husband/father is someone totally different. And of course Ed, but I like Ed in most of his roles. I also liked the semi open end where it isn't clear what is going to happen now.

Fear Itself Marathon, a review by addicted2dvd


Fear Itself: The Complete Series


5. In Sickness and in Health
On the day of her wedding to Carlos, Samantha recieves a shocking note that reads, "The person you are marrying is a serial killer."
Director: John Landis (An American Werewolf in London)


Stars:
Maggie Lawson
James Roday
Marshall Bell
Sonja Bennett
William B. Davis

My Thoughts:
This is another episode I never seen before. It originally aired as the 4th episodes of the series.  William B. Davis (The X-Files) played the part of the priest that married the couple. While it is not a terrible episode... It definitely needs a lot of work. The storyline,,, while works is not as interesting as it could be. Plus added to that is the fact that they went with the obvious twist I seen it coming from the very beginning of the episode. If there is many episodes such as this one that originally aired on TV... it comes to no surprise that the series got canceled after airing only 8 episodes.

My Rating:
