Default Deadly Blessing - Official Announcement

Deadly Blessing DVD (Arrow Video)



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 a 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.

One of Hollywood’s masters of terror presents a tale of rural horror and simmering evil from the golden age of video terror.

Best tagline I've ever come up with. Got a little Amish/Witness reference in there.

I like the bit about a tractor expressly forbidden as a tool of the devil...

I really love this film and the Arrow artwork here is great IMO!

Definitely one of the strongest. Reminds me of some of the art I used to love in 2000AD comic.

That is an absolutely stunning piece of artwork.

gorgeous. Arrow's best imo.

I already have the last Arrow release of the film though, but the extras aren't good enough to make me want to double dip on the film which is probably a 5.5/10.

Just a little aside to say that the original theatrical trailer will also be present.

Love the art too.

I just recently picked up the original Arrow release of this in their 2.99 sale, and really rather enjoyed it. Not wanting to give anything away, but I thought that some of the scenes definitely pointed the way to what was to come a little later in A Nightmare On Elm Street. I think I'll definitely be double-dipping on this one for the cover alone, although maybe not day one as there are just too many other great releases coming from Arrow later this year that I will want to pick up first.

Indeed it is and definitely one of the best (if not, the best imo.) yet to grace an Arrow title. Superb stuff!

Terrific tagline too, Sam.

I confess i've never been in a hurry to catch DB and so i've no knowledge if the film is any good or not. Maybe it's time to change that if not on the time of the DVD's release then perhaps sometime down the line.
