Horror Pack March 2018 Review
Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1992) – Retail Value $10.26 for Blu-Ray
Oh, I am QUITE familiar with this movie. This film came out when I was roughly eleven years old and I was thoroughly obsessed. Winona Ryder was and is forever my girl crush. I grew up obsessing over her in movies like Beetlejuice, Heathers, and Reality Bites. I feel like most women my age have a soft spot for her and Drew Barrymore from that era. I also, even at a young age, was obsessed with horror/macabre books and movies and this was quite the big deal to me. Oddly enough, I only own this on a VHS copy my dad got from BMG (I also had the Sega game too, FYI), so it is nice to have this gorgeous film on Blu-Ray! The legendary Francis Ford Coppola’s take on the classic tale of Count Dracula also stars Gary Oldman, Keanu Reeves, and Anthony Hopkins. You have a stellar cast and director, but the adaptation is absolutely perfect and the costumes and set design is utterly mind-blowing. The special effects are impressive too considering they didn’t have CGI and opted to use many used in old silent films as well! If you never saw this movie, hop to it and rent it asap! It is a true classic!
Psycho Killer (Also Known as Lady Psycho Killer) 2015—Retail Value $16.10 for DVD
I was excited to see this film in part due to the beautiful cover. The cover doesn’t necessarily reflect the stars or aesthetic of the film, though. Indie films can be a real roll of the dice: it could either be hot mess express or a brilliant gem! This movie falls in between, a dull diamond on a slow-moving wagon maybe? It has great elements in it. Oddly, sometimes how the lack the cohesiveness in the scenes’ writing and dialog at times work for the movie. The film follows a young female college student that is challenged by a college professor to “break a sexual norm” for a class project. She gets engrossed deeply in the assignment and takes it to wildly dark levels, all while finding out about herself and her MIA father in the process. Malcolm McDowell and Ron Jeremy have small, yet memorable parts in the movie as well.
Silent House (2012)— Retail Value $9.97 for DVD, less for Blu-Ray
What a suspenseful movie this one is! Holy smokes! Elizabeth Olsen (yes, sister of the infamous Olsen twins from Full House) stars in this slow-moving thriller about a woman that helps her father and uncle revamp a dilapidated house that has no electricity. Needless to say, the family finds a lot more surprises and terror than your typical home renovation. FYI: This movie will give you a case of the unsettling creeps that stick with you for a few days after viewing. Don’t say I didn’t provide a disclaimer.
The Rite (2011) – Retail Value $8.45 for Blu-Ray
Another film starring the incomparable living legend, Anthony Hopkins! He is a living icon for movies like Silence of the Lambs, Elephant Man, Remains of the Day, etc. This movie could be another trite film about exorcisms and religion, but Anthony Hopkins brings something to his role and the film that make it a worthwhile and riveting view. The movie is about a young son of an undertaker that decides to leave his life as a mortician for a free ride to seminary school that eventually leads to him becoming an exorcist performing priest. I watched this with my dad, who tends to zonk out five minutes into a movie, and he sat watching the film breath bated. That says it all to me.
Verdict: March’s Horror Pack was a great mix of big blockbuster and indie films alike. I am biased in saying Bram Stoker’s Dracula was my favorite of the bunch, but all were worthwhile films and in a variety of sub-genres in horror. All in all, this was a great month of selections! Bravo, Horror Pack!

Value Breakdown: This box costs me $24.99 with free shipping which means that each of the movies would cost $6.25 a piece roughly. If I were to buy these movies individually, my calculations come up to $44.78. That is $19.79 in savings which almost covers the cost of the subscription! That is an amazing deal!
