Queens of Scream Blu-ray & DVD #Review #MillCreekEntertainment

Disclosure: I received free product for review purposes and all opinions expressed are my own.

Recently I had the pleasure to receive and review Queens of Scream Blu-ray & DVD from Mill Creek Entertainment. As you might know from my previous posts, they have so many DVDs and Blu-rays to offer for any genre and age.

If you like scary or horror films, the Queens of Scream would be the ticket for you to watch. It includes the following films:

I Know What You Did Last Summer
Vacancy
When A Stranger Calls

I decided to watch When A Stranger Call, which I had never seen before. It was made in 1979 so I was in my 20's when it was made.

One of my favorite actors is in it - Charles Durning. It also stars Carol Kane and Colleen Dewhurst. The movie starts out with a babysitter coming to a home and the parents giving her instructions about the kids.

The babysitter starts doing her homework and gets a couple of phone calls, then the phone cuts off. She gets another phone call with a male voice that says "have you checked the children"?  She is getting frighted and calls the place where the parents of the children are at. She gets the reply that they have left 40 minutes ago.

Later she decides to call the police and let them know she's getting phone calls from a man every 15 minutes and they say they can't do anything about it. Afterwards she gets another call from the man and he says "why haven't you checked the children". She calls the police again and they tell her to keep him on the line and they could trace the call. She gets another call and starts talking to him and asking who he is and if he knows her. He then hangs up again.

The police call her and tell her they have traced the call and it is coming from inside the house! In another segment it shows a bunch of police in the house and say the children have been dead for several hours and are covered with blood. The parents are home and grieving and the police say the babysitter is alright.

The story fast forwards to 7 years later when the police (Charles Durning) goes to the house where it all happened. The father (I assume)  says the murderer was declared insane and is in a state mental hospital which is not secure. The policeman goes to the state mental hospital and asks the doctor questions about how he is and his habits. The  doctors lets him listen to a tape recording of them interviewing him.

Later the scene is in a bar and there is a man who I think is the murderer going up to a woman to light her cigarette. She lights her own and he offers to buy the next round. She says she has her own money. She moves down the bar and he comes and keeps talking to her. Then another guy comes and says "the lady wants to be alone". The strange guy just sits there and the other guy hit him and they fight until the strange guy is knocked on the floor.

In another segment the police go to the home again and tells the father that the murderer has escaped and he has the job of tracking him and he needs his full cooperation. The father says "okay, yes, anything you want".

Later the woman that was in the bar walks home to find the strange guy standing by her apartment door. He says he wants to apologize but she says she should be the one to apologize and didn't mean for that to happen (get beat up). He walks in her apartment and wants to have coffee with her but she says maybe tomorrow. She get a phone call and says that her boyfriend is coming over and that he has to go now.

In the morning it shows the murderer and another guy getting kicked out of a laundromat they must have spent the night in. They go their own ways and later the policeman (Durning) is walking the streets asking people if they have seen a guy (showing them a picture of the murderer who escaped).

So far I am very interested in this movie and want to see how it ends. It is rather scary and holds my attention very well. The other 2 movies sound just as scary as well!

If you have never visited Mill Creek Entertainment before I would definitely recommend checking it out for yourself!

No Tell MOTEL 8 Movie Collection - #Review #MillCreekEntertainment








Disclosure: I received free product from MillCreekEntertainment.com and all opinions are my own.

Mill Creek Entertainment has a great assortment of movies for anyone. Besides movies you can find television shows and they have any genre you are looking for. They offer drama, comedy, westerns, family, action, horror and much more! They are always coming out with new releases so you can be sure to find something you would like.

For my review I received a DVD Collection which includes 8 movies in a 2 disc set. They movies that are on this set include:

Vacancy
Identity
Hostel
Hostel Part II
Terror At Red Wolf Inn
It Happened At Nightmare Inn
The Devil's Nightmare
Legacy of Blood

I decided to watch Terror At Red Wolf Inn first, which was made in 1972 (when I was in high school). It starts off with a bunch of teenagers coming out of college and riding bikes A girl goes to her dorm and is opening her mail when she gets a surprising letter that she has won an all expense trip to the Red Wolf Inn. She calls the number on the letter and is pretty excited about winning and starts packing. She asks if it is some sort of a joke but believes it.

In another segment it shows an elderly woman getting a phone call that the girl is coming. Then she goes outdoors and tells an elderly man that "she's coming and is on the way". He says he will get ready. I think it is really weird how a girl would go away with complete strangers thinking she won a prize. But, things happen like this I guess. It's a movie too.

Later it shows the girl getting on a plane with an escorted pilot. She wants to call her mother but the pilot says they don't have time and that she can call her when they arrive. It then shows a young man fishing and the old lady says she is on her way. He picks her up at the plane and puts her suitcase in a car and they drive off. He is speeding and the police start going after him and she wants him to pull over but he doesn't want to. He eludes them in an alley or driveway.

When they arrive at the the hotel there are other girls there who must have "won a prize" also. They go in the huge mansion and Regina (the college girl) wants to phone her mother. Of course she goes to use the phone and it doesn't work.

The old lady says they must be famished and has a big meal for the girls at an elegant dining table. It shows them all stuffing themselves with a rib roast, which was rather comical the way they were chomping away at it. Then the old man tells the young guy who lives with them to get a bottle of brandy and they all have some. Soon they get tired and all go to bed. The college girl starts to dream and wakes up; then goes looking in the bathroom medicine cabinet, looking for something to settle her stomach I assume.

She goes downstairs and looks in the walk in freezer when the young man (their grandson) who lives with the old people comes out wielding a large knife. The old lady appears and apologizes for scaring her and the young guy does also. The next day Regina goes for a walk outdoors and comes upon a  little house or building. She goes inside and looks around.

In another segment it shows one of the girls on the beach enjoying the day. The old lady comes and offers her some lunch while she's lying on the beach. She eats the sandwich and says it is good. The weird guy that was earlier wielding a large knife is fishing on the beach also. The girl and guy start making a sand castle together and he kisses her. He then looks at his fishing pole in the water and catches a small shark. Then he starts hitting it till it's dead and yelling "shark" which was really weird.

Later it shows the whole group having a go away party for one of the girls (Edwina) and are drinking champagne and wearing party hats. Later when Edwina is sleeping the old woman, man and their grandson come in her room and put something on her mouth to put her out.

They carry in a basement and it shows them going in a door. The old man says "this is choice grade A" which was really eery. Then you can hear outside of the door some chopping. The next morning Regina comes in for breakfast and asks where Edwina is. The old lady tells her she went home early. Regina says that there is something going on here and tries to make a phone call but the old lady comes and hangs up the phone.

So far this is a very interesting film, if you like horror movies. It holds your attention and you want to keep watching it to see what happens next.
