    Delirium was entertaining I enjoyed it a lot more than Stephanie the other recent DVD blumhouse release. Delirium is more thriller than horror but does have horror elements.Topher Grace did a great job.

    I still haven't gotten around to any of the new Blumhouse straight-to-video movies (Delirium, Family Blood, Stephanie), but there's a new one coming hot on their heels.

    Coming to DVD on August 7th is The Keeping Hours, starring Lee Pace (from the fantastic The Fall) and the amazing Carrie Coon (The Leftovers and Fargo Season 3). Looks a bit bland, but I might check it out just for Carrie.

    I have relatives visiting at the moment, including two very young children. And since I'm a bit of an insomniac, I thought it might be time to give Stephanie a spin after everyone goes to bed. 90% of Blumhouse movies are incredibly tame, so I figured it'd be safe to have it on if anyone wakes up. And for the most part, I was right. It's an incredibly tame movie.

    But holy shit, did I dive for the remote control when the little girl starts yelling "SHIT! ASS! SHITASS SHITASS SHITASS SHITASS SHITASS SHITASS!"

    Anyway, movie was a disappointment. It's not even an evil kid movie like I was expecting. It's sort of like A Quiet Place only made like a bad TV movie. I guess I should give it points for being different, but this is not good different. I was bored. It really doesn't make a lot of sense either. Not even Grillo could save it.

    Not Safe For Work remains the best of the straight-to-DVD Blumhouse movies, by far.

    There's another new straight-to-NetFlix Blumhouse movie called Seven In Heaven. Actually, I think it's been out since October, but I just now got around to it. Don't believe there's a DVD release yet.

    This was probably one of their better NetFlix efforts. It's really tame and teen-friendly, sort of like Happy Death Day by way of Wish Upon, only not as fun as either of those. The entire movie revolves around a house party where two teenagers go into a closet to play Seven Minutes In Heaven, and when they come out they find themselves in an alternate reality where one of them is accused of murdering another teenager with a pencil (Robert Patrick in The Faculty, eat your heart out). The movie jumps back and forth between the two teenagers in the alternate reality, and the real world house party where their friends are trying to figure out where they disappeared to. Not great horror by any means, but it's a breezy and fairly entertaining watch. Definitely for teenagers.
