It seemed like the perfect neighborhood. Nothing bad could ever happen on quiet Wormwood Drive. At least thats what Bob and Wendi Petersen thought, before they met their new neighbor.

This is not a horror movie.
Munqaxus
FOr the the effects, I will give this one a OK on the gross factor.

Here's a scenario from Deadly End that should tell you right away if this is the type of movie you really want to watch or not... a man uses his finger to have sex with an open wound on his stomach while repeatedly stabbing himself in the privates with a syringe(which of course brings him great pleasure). I CAN'T MAKE THIS STUFF UP PEOPLE! Deadly End tells the tale of Wendy and Bob Peterson and their neighbor from Hell, Adrian Trumbull. Adrian welcomes them to the neighborhood with all sorts of devious tricks(that oddly enough would have fit just as well in a Home Alone movie) such as a boquet of poison oak and chocolates filled with laxitives(!?). Things get much darker and bring far more serious consequences when the Petersons confront him about his recent "gifts"... hijinx ensue! Deadly End is a pretty methodical horror/thriller that every once in awhile tosses in a moment of complete over the top madness like the one mentioned at the top of the review. The end result is a mixed bag that does more right due to solid performances(including Nick Searcy giving an inspired performance as Trumbull) and a finale that should churn the stomach of even the most hardened horror fans(and done with some of the best low budget effects I've ever seen). One major knock on the film would have to be the near constant need for suspension of disbelief... don't get me wrong, in horror movies this isn't uncommon(or really movies in general) but in a film like this that plans to deliver much of it's impact by making the viewer feel like "this could happen anywhere,maybe even to me," a few less moments of unbelievability wouldn't have hurt.Read more ›

Hurricane fences. Lawns gone fallow. Abandoned cars. Rubbish strewn vacant lots. Boxes full of cheap trinkets. Street after street of identical tract homes. Wood paneling. Indifferent receptionists. Retirees waiting to die. Irritable neighbors. Unpainted drywall. Flickering fluorescent lights. Cheap linoleum floors. Nothing on TV ...

Deadly End, when it went under the name of Neighborhood Watch while on the film festival circuit generated an intriguing buzz. Some found it the most disturbing film, ever. Still other viewers likened it to the works of David Lynch. There were even audience members who actively disliked the film, calling it "tedious and unwatchable."

The story is no great shakes. Bob (Jack Huston) is a young British yuppie out to carve a niche for himself in corporate America who lands a job in Nowheresville, California. His cheerful American bride Wendi (Pell James) is along for the ride, and blinded by new and exciting possibilities, the couple moves into a distressed suburban hellhole. The people in the surrounding area appear to be less than ideal. The elderly couple across the way seems to be in the final stages of dementia, and their overly enthusiastic next-door neighbor Adrien (reliable character actor Nick Searcy) showers the newlyweds with booby-trapped gifts. Flower arrangements composed of sprigs of poison oak and chocolates laced with horse laxatives send our lovebirds to the hospital emergency room, and a war of wills ensues.

Deadly End has several implausibility issues. The police force in the film waives away the many complaints filed against Adrien due to his father being the mayor, in spite of all the ensuing mayhem. Our couple seems more than a bit naïve as well.

I was at the New York City Horror Film Festival to support my short film "Newlybleds" and while there had the chance to see this film screened under its original title "Neighborhood Watch." Let me just say that it made a very lasting impression. I squirmed in my seat and laughed out loud to hold back the horror as the strikingly authentic gore was unleashed time and time again.

One guy even fainted in the middle of the movie and had to be carried out.

Anyway, gore aside...the acting is great and the actors are first rate for a film that had such a limited budget.

My favorite memory is as the credits rolled and the lights came up, my friend looked over at me and said "That was the most disturbing film I have ever seen." Little did we know the producer for the "Deadly End" was sitting behind us and laughed saying "You just made my night."

Take a chance. Bring a vomit bag. This film will make your night.

.......especially when that neighbor wears filthy and soiled clothing-has running boils and zits on one side of his face and acts neighborly in a creepy sort of way-but his idea of neighborly is to lace the chocolates with laxatives. And when the young couple refuse his next gift of home-made preserves all hell breaks loose and he begins to poison their water.

There is also another scene involving a bouquet of poison oak-but the real horror behind this movie is the paranoia of not knowing what kind of sicko could be living across the street in an otherwise quiet neighborhood. he also terrorizes a senior citizen couple and causes that wife to have a stroke. She is hooked up to a ventilator and Adrien the monster sabotages the couples electricity and the wife dies.

The final scene is the grossout and will not be revealed here but one good thing is the husband of the stroke victim gets his revenge and boy does he ever.

Finally a horror film that isn't the usual slice and dice-but is cringe-worthy seeing the young couple graphically feeling the full effects of the laxative-laced chocolates and then slowly wasting away from being poisoned.

Good rental but not for the overly sensitive or squeamish.
