Brain Damage Films is going to hit you hard with the VOD (March 1st) and DVD (April 8th) release of the anthology Dead on Appraisal. The DVD will feature behind-the-scenes featurettes, unseen trailers, and more. What’s being promised to be a horror anthology filled with blood and gore and tiny things of terror, this flick could be just the right recipe for Brain Damage since the distributor often delivers movies that question your predilection for low-budget. We love ’em, and we’ll sit through things that’ll make most people slit their wrists, but many of the movies here often have painfully long scenes that seem to have no purpose. Hold on, I’m just about to reveal my point… which is why an anthology like Dead on Appraisal, which consists of three short stories, is just right!
Dead on Appraisal Synopsis:
Real estate agent John Dante is stuck with a house he can’t sell. Despite his best efforts, he can’t seem to overcome the house’s macabre past.
This haunting anthology’s first tale is “The Morning After.” Following the party of a lifetime, a group of friends wake to find a nightmare in the form of a killer bug invasion.
John is horrified to hear the story of Robbie, a young veteran who returns home to live with his father. In “Father Land” Robbie’s dark secret slowly bubbles to the surface.
Then there’s Freddie Cooper and his band. “Freddie and the Goblins” is a tale of how Freddie’s band mates try to ditch him only to be caught up in the singer’s growing psychosis.
In a last ditch effort John’s girlfriend plans a party to help raise interest in the property, but with disastrous consequences. Will they survive the terrors that lie within its walls, or will they become just another of the house’s many sordid tales?
Dead on Appraisal ties these three short films together with the story of John Dante, a real estate agent who just can’t get rid of a seemingly cursed house. Sean Canfield, Scott Dawson, and David Sherbrook share writer/credits for “Father Land,” “Freddie and the Goblins,” and “The Morning After,” respectively.
