TDcore's Horror Journal 2018: Pt. 4 (50 movies items)

" Bob Clark released two horror films in 1974. Black Christmas and this one. Obviously, Black Christmas garnered most of the attention, but this little film has sustained a large cult following as well, and rightly so. It's a moody, creepy and surreal flick, although it does have some issues. The concept alone is haunting enough; the tale of a young soldier killed in battle who is risen from death and guided back home by his mother's prayers, but finds he needs blood to keep from decomposing.

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"A grindhouse threnody for the Vietnam generation, Bob Clark’s emotionally overwhelming Deathdream is a raw nerve radiating pure shock and grief, as evidenced by the reunion of Faces‘s Lynn Carlin and John Marley to play the parents of a young private who, after apparently dying in battle, returns to their doorstep. With echoes of “The Monkey’s Paw,” it gradually dawns on the initially relieved family that Andy’s purple heart may no longer beat, and yet he thirsts for blood, which wou"

Film Journal - June 2016 (32 movies items)

"Probably one of the most underrated horror films ever made. It's super low-budget, so that might be a turn-off for a lot of watchers, but I feel like it adds to the creepiness. It's rough, unpolished and incredibly grim. It's also one of the few horror films that manages to be both genuinely creepy and heartbreaking. It's a family drama, a horror film and an allegory for war and the effects of war. "
