DVD Locker Insider - Latest movie news and updates

You know what goes great with a Movie? Some good old treats! Oh yes why not upgrade your Movie Night and make it extra special..

We at DVDLocker are passionate about Movies, our company made by Movie Lovers for Movie Lovers. We’ve had a discussion of our staff members favourite treats and snacks whilst watching a Movie, of course our results were very different but we’d love to share our Top 10 Treats that seemed to have come out on top !

  • Number 1 — Popcorn – A true classic for any movie out there! No wonder why the cinemas use this past time.. And before you ask we prefer salted Y-U-M-M-Y!!

  • Number 2 — Haribos – The modern day favourite that’s great for adults too! A lot of our staff seemed to agree that these sweets are to good NOT to miss! Our favourite: the eggs mmmmmm!

  • Number 3 — Cucumber & Humus – This one came in a not to shabby third place! OK so a lot of staff are vegan and vegetarians, but if your looking for a refreshing, healthy and guilt free snack then this is the one for you.

  • Number 4 — Chocolate Buttons – Now we are talking, I personally love these (no guessing which I opted for) specially the large buttons perfect for those melt in your mouth kind of moments, pure chocolate heaven!

  • Number 5 — Pringles – This causes a slight divide with us in DVDLocker HQ as we thought the “crunch” noise would distract you from the movie! However it’s still ended up in spot number 5 on our list, after all once you pop… Our favourite flavour I hear you ask – Sour cream & Chive.

  • Number 6 — Olives – Again we are back on the healthy route, olives are a great all rounder that’s not only good for you but soo nice too, so why not switch up your treats for something different..

  • Number 7 — Cheese & Crackers – If you wanted to have a slightly more up market treat whilst your settling down to a great movie, then you can’t go wrong good ol’ cheese and crackers! Even if you don’t like cheese crackers on their own with some butter are devine..

  • Number 8 — Pretzels – Popular by most, Pretzels are a great appetiser that’s perfect for to enhance your viewing experience. The saltiness of the pretzels will make you want more and more just don’t forget to have a drink handy!

  • Number 9 — Nachos & Cheese – If your looking to upgrade your treats then Nachos and Cheese is a serious contender! A perfect yet naughty treat that will keep you coming back for more and more.. just remember to keep your eyes on the screen or at least pause so you don’t miss out any of the movie 😉

  • Number 10 — Nuts – Finally that grabbed the number 10 spot was nuts! Whether you like peanuts, walnuts, cashews, hazelnuts or pecans they are a great and simple snack that is healthier and of course satisfying.

So there you have it our very own Top 10 Treats to accompany your Movie Night! – Hopefully we’ve given you some ideas and inspiration for your next Movie Night.

Why not give some of our Treats a go next time and see what you think, it’s always good to switch it up. Change is good.

So let’s get down to business today we are reviewing the Movie ‘Stories To Tell In The Dark’ directed by andré øvredal. This Movie is pretty new out of the charts (released 2019)  and maybe one that has slipped under the radar of people as I don’t personally recall this being advertised prior to launch, this movie is horror / mystery / Thriller.

Small Snippet: The Movie starts back in halloween in 1968, when Stella who portrays a recluse young girl and her 2 close friends find a mysterious character Ramón who is from out of town and not known to anyone. Now with the 4 of them they discover a personal notebook that is full of sinister stories. This movie starts very quickly and straight away you have that sense of dread when they Stella and her 2 friends make a quick escape and end up sitting in Ramón’s car. As the tale further unfolds you witness the intense, scary and dark themes that run throughout. This Movie contains; Flashing images, Dark themes, vivid characters and a bold narrative. The Movie has a runtime of: 108 minutes.

The Storyline: The Movie is based back in 1968 in an American small town called Mill Valley, all the locals of the town know about the ‘Bellows’ family and this has been something that has loomed ever since. The story of the bellows involves a daughter called Sarah who was a young girl who held some very dark secrets. Sarah was tortured in the family mansion situated just on the outskirts of the town, Sarah turned the horrific events she had faced and wrote them in a book in the means of scary stories. When Stella and her group breaks into the mansion and discover the actual book that Sarah has written it gets a little close to home for the group as the stories within become a lot more real and a lot more deadly. Can Stella and her group get to the bottom of this? Can they get rid of the book? Or put it back where it belong..

Our Views: This Movie grips you from the very beginning, the narrative throughout is very strong and easy to understand. The Movie is fast paced, and gets quite dark and jumpy in parts too. The characters are played very well indeed, and the effects and imagery throughout is very vivid and lifelike. As watching this Movie I felt like I was taken back to my childhood days with the TV series ‘Are You Afraid Of The Dark’ of course this was a lot more of a grown ups version. You instantly connect with the characters and at parts are shouting at the TV screen to try and stop the characters doing the wrong thing. This Movie is very enjoyable, well written and has just that perfect balance of dark/gore and horror. Some parts are quite comical.

Final Thoughts: Personally I would say this Movie is worthy of a brilliant night in cuddled up with the curtains closed and lights off. This Movie will appeal to most audiences due to the strong narrative and easy to understand storyline along with the very lifelike characters. The effects used in this Movie are brilliant and does look very real indeed. I also like that the Movie is set in olden times which makes this that little bit different from the new age horror flicks. I just wished they carried on the storyline. With saying that the Movie ends on a cliff hanger and room to add a sequel. If you love a Movie that is clear, precise and grips you from the off – then this Movie is sure to a treat for you, mix that with the added dark scenes and horrific and somewhat disturbing images.

Well hello readers, welcome to DVD Locker Insider! We write about Movie reviews so you can have an insight to some of the latest, greatest (and of course not so great) Movies.

We are reviewing the Movie ‘Crawl’ directed by Alexandre Aja, an american horror / disaster movie.

Small Snippet: This Movie follows the story of a daughter (Hayley)  and father (Dave) and their 4 legged friend their dog, they are trapped and hunted by alligators during a category 5 hurricane, so as the house is flooding more and more both Hayley and Dave need to fight for their lives to get out! Can they escape without being eaten? This Movie does start off pretty much straight away and before you know it you are engrossed in with the action. This Movie contains, scenes of action, flashing images and minor gore and bloody scenes. The movie has a run-time of: 87 minutes.

The Storyline: Confident swimmer Hayley played by Kaya Scodelario drives directly into the heart of a category 5 destructive hurricane taking a detour from her hometown in Florida, to check on her distant Father, Dave played by Barry Pepper as shes frantically looking around the house for Dave, she finds clues that he is in the house somewhere or other. Once Hayley finds Dave thanks to the dog, both of them come face to face with.. Alligators swimming and walking around. The house is slowly sinking and filling up with water as the water levels are rising, its only a matter of time to get out without being eaten alive!?

Our Views: This Movie on the whole was fairly enjoyable, and quite fast paced right from the opening scene, there is a good narrative within too which is a plus. The effects was really good and very much looked real. However I found in certain scenes the Movie did seem a little slow, with that aside the Movie on the while was a good watch and did provide some nice evening entertainment, the Movie is not exactly scary but does provide a good action based fit. On the positive side you have a few scenes where you can really get through your popcorn without jumping and dropping it everywhere. Based on a very simple narrative this Movie is very easy to understand right from the offset. At times you will find yourself shouting at the TV to try and stop the characters onscreen making the wrong choices.

Final Thoughts: I would say this Movie is great for evening entertainment for most people, especially if you like natural disaster Movies and of course dangerous Alligators. The narrative is clear and simple to understand so you won’t feel ‘lost’ or ‘confused’ which is refreshing for some viewers. I really like the effects as it all does seem very real so the CGI used within was quite frankly amazing! If you are into your action Movies and love great effects and a real strong and easy to understand story-line then this Movie is for you!

‘More than Movies’

 

 


As we explained in our previous post here

**Contains Spoilers**

We have started to add Movie Reviews to this website, so you can get the Highs, The Lows about some of DVDLocker’s film choices, we are starting the theme off with HORROR we have over 23,000 titles for you to choose from so this is just 1 of them, we have rated this title 4.1/5 stars see the full review below. Before we go ahead to the review if you are looking for a new, value for money Film service (That you keep the DVDs and Blurays we send) then visit our website here and join the many happy customers we currently serve.

REVIEW:

‘Don’t say it, don’t think it. Don’t say it, don’t think it. Don’t say it, don’t think it’ – These are the words the characters in this Horror style film say when they are trying to See the ‘Bye Bye Man’ the story is three college students move into an old house off campus, they unwittingly unleash a supernatural entity known as The Bye Bye Man, who comes to prey upon them once they discover his name. The friends must try to save each other, all the while keeping The Bye Bye Man’s existence a secret to save others from the same deadly fate. This film is pretty good, and full of uneasy moments and some jumpy parts too, if you love a good horror film then this is perfectly good viewing for your Saturday night in!

In the late 1960s, a man mysteriously murders all those closest to him after he finds that they have merely uttered the name of a murderous entity. In the present day, several millennials move into this house, which is just off campus, and begin to experience mysterious events that freak them out. They too become aware of the existence of ‘the Bye Bye Man’, and learn if they even think or say his name, they will be inviting death upon themselves.

If you like films such as Candyman or Bogeyman then you will love this title.

We rate this film quite highly, as from the very start to finish you are encapsulated in the unknown and can feel the horror and the tension right from the very start, this film is very fast paced with lots of different storylines that become one, this film is similar to the likes of Candyman or similar, by summoning death simply by saying the name ‘The Bye Bye Man’ It’s simple to follow, and there are plenty of scares. It’s not too complicated so it doesn’t get tangled up in itself.

This film is fairly low budget in this day and age it did well. The acting was good, the plot was intense and the twists were brilliant.If they had a higher budget I’m sure they could have done even better, and I’m sure a sequel would do well.

If you are looking for a full on Bloody and Gory movie then this wouldn’t be for you, however if you are looking for a Scary, Fast paced and Physiological film then this really could provide you with a great standard Horror Film alternative.

Did you know? – This film as well as many others are available at DVDLocker, simply click here to join us today and get the best movies sent directly to your home, that you keep each and every month, we are also rated 4.9/5 stars on Yell, give us a try today you won’t be disappointed!
