Horror Pack December 2017 Review

Dead Within (2014) dvd case front

Dead Within (2014)—Retail Value $6.98

WOW. This was an intense movie. To me, it was an alright Repulsion as a zombie movie. The title itself foreshadows a lot of the plot and serves a bit as a spoiler, but I came out of watching this feeling a bit lonelier and isolated myself. Not the best or most unique zombie movie, but it did pack in a lot of suspense as a psychological thriller.

Cell 213 (2010) — Retail Value $14.99

I was intrigued by this movie due to Eric Balfour (Six Feet Under) and Michael Rooker (The Walking Dead) being the two headlining stars. Eric Balfour plays a framed lawyer that is stuck in Cell 213, a cell various prisoners died mysteriously at due to unknown forces. This prison movie meets supernatural horror film is often too much to take. The movie was depressing, gory, and just awful. None of the characters in this movie are remotely likable either, so I found the end of the movie a bit of a relief.

Lake Placid Vs. Anaconda (2015) dvd case front

FOUND (2012)—Retail Value $12.50

Okay. I take back what I said about Dead Within being intense. This movie marries a coming of age tale with the horror genre. It is about a bullied young boy named Marty who is trying to cope with the hardships of growing up as well as a deep dark secret regarding his older brother. This movie lingered with me for days after I watched it. The end was… WOW. That is all I can say. This is the movie that made the November’s box a fantastic one.

Lake Placid Vs. Anaconda (2015) – Retail Value $8.16

THANK YOU, HORROR PACK! I needed the comic relief that Lake Placid vs. Anaconda could only provide after three incredibly dark and emotionally wrenching horror movies. Freddy Krueger aka Robert Englund and Parker Lewis aka Corin Nemec of Parker Lewis Can’t Lose (Oh, yes I am taking it back with my love of old 90’s sitcoms I grew up with) star in this movie. I enjoyed the Troma quality laughs and gore. I also appreciate that the movie didn’t take itself seriously, but how can you when the plot involves genetically altered killer anacondas and SVU crushing crocodiles that feast on sorority girls? The special effects were tremendously bad but added to the humor as well.

Verdict: This month’s selections were movies more recently released from the last ten years circa 2008-2015. The majority were rather dark and haunting, with the exception of Lake Placid Vs. Anaconda. I enjoyed all, excluding Cell 213 which is rather ironic since I was excited to view that movie due to the cast. Overall, for the price of $19.99 I got four movies that I may never have known about otherwise. That is like $5 for each which is less than what I would have paid at a theater to see them or even to purchase each individually online!

Value Breakdown: This box costs me $19.99 with free shipping which means that each of the movies would cost $5 a piece roughly. If I were to buy these movies individually, my calculations come up to $42.63 for all four! That is $22.64 in savings, which is a heck of a deal!
