DVD Review – Killer Party (2018)

Killer Party, 2018.

Directed and Written by Chris von Hoffman.

Starring Sam Strike, Virginia Gardner, Brandon Micheal Hall, Erin Moriarty, Kian Lawley, Julian McMahon, Robin Tunney, and Lance Reddick.

Synopsis:

Three young thieves infiltrate a mansion dinner party secretly hosted by a group of recovering murderers for the social elite.

A fun slasher horror going for laughs rather than jumps and scares, Killer Party (also known as Monster Party in the USA) scores high for amusing ridiculousness. A clever central conceit of a trio of young thieves breaking into a party hosted by serial killers is a strong concept that promises blood, gore and guts. The movie wholly delivers in this respect, also serving up laughs and entertaining slapstick humour.

The plot is pretty simple; three crims stake out places in wealthy neighbourhoods, break in and then run off with the loot. Aside from wanting to get rich quick, Casper (Sam

‘Killer Party’ DVD Review

Stars: Sam Strike, Erin Moriarty, Robin Tunney, Julian McMahon, Lance Reddick, Virginia Gardner, Kian Lawley | Written and Directed by Chris von Hoffman

When three teenage thieves infiltrate a mansion dinner party they have plans for pulling off an easy and lucrative heist. Little do they know that the dinner party is actually hosted for a group of recovering serial killers that have gone ‘sober’ and fought to change the error of their ways. Once the mansion owners realise they are about to be robbed all hell breaks loose.

I love home invasion movies. Even moreso when those whose homes are being invaded are not quite who or, in some cases, what they appear. Taking the typical home invasion flick and turning it on its head by having the hunters become the hunted usually makes for some intriguing, exciting storytelling. Especially when said homeowners are as blatantly evil as the antagonists,

The Fix: Season One Ratings

ABC hasn't debuted a lot of new dramas during the 2018-19 television season.

Marcia Clark Co-Created ‘The Fix’ Canceled By ABC After One Season

ABC has cancelled legal drama The Fix after a short first season. The drama series, from ex-O.J. Simpson prosecutor Marcia Clark, Liz Craft, Sarah Fain, Mandeville TV and ABC Studios, was co-written by the former L.A. County deputy District Attorney.

With her stellar high-profile career derailed, Travis leaves the City of Angels for a quieter life in Washington. Eight years later, when this same celebrity is under suspicion for killing another girlfriend, Maya heads back to Los Angeles and the District Attorney’s office for another swing at achieving the justice she felt was denied before.
