Editorial Reviews

When a former member of a religious cult dies in a mysterious accident, his wife Martha (Maren Jensen, Battlestar Galactica), who now lives alone and close to the cult’s church, begins to fear for her life and the lives of her visiting friends (Susan Buckner, Sharon Stone). Strange and deadly events begin to happen... Could she be the target of the evil cult and its fanatical leader Isaiah (Ernest Borgnine)?

Directed by Wes Craven (Scream, A Nightmare on Elm Street) and starring Jeff East (Pumpkinhead), Lisa Hartman (The 17th Bride) and Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes), this consistently terrifying film delivers unpredictable plot twists (Time Out) and visual shocks galore.

ONE of Craven's earlier chillers which I thought was pretty good. Mara Jensen and her husband live on a farm and her husband is accidentally killed. (not a spoiler it happens in the first ten minutes!) Her friends Sharon Stone and Susan Buckley(patty from grease) come to stay with her. Besides them, Mara's only other friends are Lois Nettleton and her shy daughter who live nearby. Soon more accidents are happening ,obviously a killer is on the loose! You get a snake in the tub(just try to watch!), Mara Jensen in two catfights, and sharon stone freaking out in a barn and falling down stairs. i don't know why this is so hard to find. they should re-release it. luckily i have a copy i bought used a few years back. if you can find it get it.

This blu ray is an improvement on the previous region 2 dvd which I had, not only in the extras department but also visually. The movie is in widescreen- the scenes of the Texas farmlands are beautiful, and many of the night shots (during which certain murders occur) are just the right balance of light and dark so that you feel it's really night and the action is clear enough to make out. One problem is that the high quality of the blu ray image shows-up the limited quality of a couple of effects shots. The audio commentary by Wes Craven has interesting antecdotes about filming and setting-up some of the creepy built-up set pieces as well as dealing with certain actors and the ending which he did not choose but was forced to use. The sound is good- James Horner's eerie and sometimes overblown score is louder than ever, and dialogue and sound effects shocks are sharp and clear. The interviews explain almost too much about the film, taking away the mystery of a film of which little was told of over the years except for the segment about a certain creature effect in the film (hardly anything is shone clearly). The interviews with both screenwriters are the most revealing of the story and filmmaking process. This was also the first time I had seen the interesting-looking actor Michael Berryman interviewed. The TV spots are interesting- I had not seen them since I watched these advertisements on network TV back in 1981. Thanks to Shout! Factory for releasing yet another cool 80's rarity.

In Amish Country Pennslyvania, there lives a religious community who are similar to the Amish but not connection to either the Amish or Hutterties known as Hittites lead by their fanatical leader Isiah (Ernest Borgnine). A married woman named Martha (Maren Jenson) just lost her former hittite husband Jim (Douglas Barr), her friends (Sharon Stone and Susan Buckner) visit her to comfort her. However there is a dark secret that the Hittites are hiding from Martha, there is a deadly incubus curse going on which has been kept for generations as some people begin to drop like flies and weird things start happening.

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.

"Deadly Blessing" is a surprisingly good horror movie from Wes Craven. It has Ernest Borgnine (Marty (1954)), Maren Jensen, otherwise known as Athena on Battlestar Galactica - The Complete Epic Series), and a young Sharon Stone (Basic Instinct - Director's Cut (Ultimate Edition)). The Hittites (loosely based on the Hutterites/Amish) are an enclosed community, shunning modern technology. One of their own has left the fold to marry Maren. He suffers deadly consequences.

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!
