They ll Build A Barn From Your Bones!
Wes Craven unearths the darkness that festers beneath an isolated community in Deadly Blessing, a rural tale of mistrust and bloody murder from the director of Last House on the Left.
When Martha marries into a close knit sect she finds herself shunned as an outsider by its fanatical members, but when her husband dies mysteriously while riding a tractor expressly forbidden as a tool of the devil, things take a darker turn. Marked as an incubus by her neighbours, time is running out for Martha and her visiting friends, as plagued by nightmares and fearing for their lives, they face the violent fury and retribution of old time religion.

As a widow, Maren is comforted by her friends. There's plenty of craziness, a questioning of societal mores. The Hittites somehow to manage to blend Eastern Orthodox sacred music with Catholic practices all the while being good Bible-quoting Protestants. The ending fight scenes are all between women, and the proper young lady Faith (Lisa Hartman) turns out to be androgynous. For some in the audience, Maren's frequent nudity is satisfying in its own way. The climactic scene... well, it makes no sense.
"Deadly Blessing" has a nightmarish, foreboding atmosphere. James Horner contributes a chilling score. In a sense, it foreshadows The Village (Widescreen Vista Series) about the clash between modern and ancient ways. "Deadly Blessing" is horrifically good!
Highly underrated 1981 supernatural horror thriller from co-writer and director Wes Craven is one of his most overlooked movies. This movie is quite different as it's a horror flick set in Amish country which no one has ever thought of, a very well acted and creepy slasher film with thrills and chills and makes you guess who is this killer. Sharon Stone makes her second film debut before becoming a big star, Michael Barryman does a sympathic role as the mentally challenged deformed Hittite and Borgnine is terrific as the religious leader, however the ending is kind of a cop-out which nearly hurts the purpose of the film but despite that it's still enjoyable stuff. I rented this when i was 5 and thought it was creepy as hell, i had this on a blank tape with other stuff on it for years and wished for the day for a DVD release and now my dream has came true as it's one of those requested movies on DVD and blu.
Scream Factory has done it again! they did a beautiful and well done transfer on the picture here and terrific sound quality on the blu-ray which i am reviewing. The extras are good from interviews, trailer, TV spots, radio spots and still gallery.
Jim Schmidt (Doug Barr) turns his back on his Hittite faith and moves to the city to start a new life. He returns with his new bride, Martha (Maren Jensen), to the place he grew up. His father, Isaiah (Ernest Borgnine), and family have disowned him for leaving the Hittite faith. They will have nothing to do with him or his bride. When Jim is killed in a mysterious tractor accident, Martha begins to suspect that the Hittites are trying to drive her away from the land she lives on and still claim is theirs. A series of brutal murders further prove something's not right in the little country community.
Director Wes Craven obviously used "Deadly Blessing" as practicing grounds for his future horror exploits. One example is a very familiar camera angle used in "Deadly Blessing" that he re-used in the original "A Nightmare on Elm Street." It left me smiling throughout the entire sequence. One thing I'll give Craven is he knows how to drum up enough suspense to make you nervously bite your fingernails through pacing and editing alone. There are some genuinely nerve-wracking moments in "Deadly Blessing."
The movie boasts an interesting variety of cast members at various times in their careers. "Deadly Blessing" is Maren Jensen's ("Battlestar Galactica") last big-screen role. It features Sharon Stone in one of her first film appearances. Genre-favorite Michael Berryman ("The Hills Have Eyes") appears as a creepy mentally handicapped Hittite.
Ernest Borgnine had already won Academy and Golden Globe Awards before taking the role of cult leader Isaiah. Any other actor of his caliber probably would've stuck his nose up in the air and walked away when offered this role in a low-budget horror film. Borgnine instead throws himself into the character and adds a level of class to the movie that takes it to a whole new level.
The audio and video quality for the "Deadly Blessing" Blu-ray release is both satisfying and disappointing. The high-definition video transfer breathes new life into the movie without robbing it of any of its original "real" film flavor. Although it's ultimately pleasing, the lack of a stereo upgrade does factor into a truly favorable viewing experience.
The bonus material will thrill genre fans. There's audio commentary for the film by director Wes Craven. We also get new interviews with actors Susan Buckner and Michael Berryman in which they reflect on the making of the movie. Interviews with Creature Designer John Naulin and Writers Glenn Benest and Matthew Barr are included as well. TV spots and a theatrical trailer round out the special features.
"Deadly Blessing (Collector's Edition)" is another feather in the cap of Shout! Factory. These releases give me another chance to catch rare cult films I missed as a child sheltered from the horror genre. My only complaint is the ridiculously cheesy tacked-on finale. If I were a snootier genre fan, that part alone would have ruined the entire experience for me. Putting the end aside, this is the perfect example of a suspenseful thriller that keeps your attention throughout its entire running time.
