D-Railed Review
by Chris Hlad

It’s that time of year again.  The days are getting shorter, the nights are getting colder, and the calendar is counting down to Halloween.  What better way to get ready for Samhain than a scary movie? 

The answer to that question is nothing.  Nothing sets the mood for the season as well as a good, scary movie, and I was fortunate enough to get a sneak peek at the latest Dale Fabrigar film / Suzanne DeLaurentiis Productions,  “D-Railed.”

DRAILED LOGO

Normally, horror movies are color by number affairs and predictable.  That’s okay if the movies are done right.  Sometimes it’s fun (yes, fun) to sit back and watch a brainless teen walk into the woods alone.  Or into that house everybody says to stay away from.  Or have random sex which is always a death sentence.

Sometimes it’s fun to watch a horror movie that challenges the mind.  The one’s that aren’t so, so predictable — which is where I’d categorize this movie.  

Sort of.

Is it possible to see a movie that provokes thought while at the same time being, dare I say, campy, while being fun and scary too? Rare, but yes.  
That’s where I’d put “D-Railed,” an early Halloween treat.

In the first act, we are introduced to a colorful cast of characters who board a Murder Mystery Train, hoping to have a good meal, adult beverages, and a mystery to solve.  

At least that was the plan.

As the cast of the Murder Mystery Train are introduced, and the minds of the passengers are somehow read and made public, something bad happens and the dinner theater body count starts. 

 And it only goes off the rails from there.  Literally.

The tension builds, the remaining cast are left to fend for themselves against a mystery creature with razor-sharp claws, and the real body count rises and…

No spoilers.

I will tell you that the final act is where the questions are raised.  What is right?  What is wrong.  Do we chase death or does death chase us?  That’s up to the cast and ultimately the audience to decide.

DRailed4

This is a movie with brains, blood, and rich characters that makes you question everything you’re watching.  But most importantly, it’s fun! It’s a movie that doesn’t take itself too seriously, and that’s why it works. Sure, there may have been a few hiccups during production that caused some minor flaws in the film, but for a movie that was filmed in twelve days between two locations, Los Angeles and Philadelphia, it wasn’t a distraction. During the screening, people jumped, screamed, laughed, and at the end applauded.  And isn’t that what it’s all about?

With its train setting, characters battling each other and a swamp creature, I think this film falls into its own genre.  Agatha Creature, if you will.  (Yes, I am going to copyright this term).

DRailed2

Indulge in this Halloween treat. You won’t be sorry.

Film Title: D-Railed

Synopsis: When a train derails into the river, its surviving passengers are faced with a grim challenge… die in the wreckage or face the unknown that awaits them in the murky waters below.

The Writers Viewpoint

The movie is just awesome. It is horrifying with a dark storyline and credible characters. These days, this movie is already considered a good horror and for some that watch it, considered it a masterpiece with amazing nature style. I urge to say, the movie is one of the top monster movies to watch for. It is included in the top ten horror movies and the direction is great too.

Although, the finale could have been better, but it was thrilling and spooky, and psychologically arousing and the movie content is impressive when you are watching it now in some streaming video sites.

The Writers Viewpoint

Like any other movies, the movie has its’ downside and ups too. There were some very great suspense sceneries, while there are some others that are painfully obvious. It felt like they should have spent just a little more time working out with the kinks. But, overall, it is still recommended to watch and don’t just give up really soon while watching. There are some really great things when you learn to wait. It has been a short time since a film like this is having a genuine affect edge of a seat, and totally made up for those bad parts.

Courtney invited her fellow learners Jamie and Sophia to join with her in doing the experiment, inside the room of unused hospital. Through using a defibrillation so it can stop her heart just for 60-seconds whilst documenting her brain, and reviving her. She assured them that they would not be accountable for any of the accidents. But Sophia is not agreeing with this, and Jamie did it anyway.

Later, Marlo the rival of Ray came and discovers the experiment.

Initially Courtney started to recall memoirs of the past happenings like the recipe of her grandmother for making bread. Courtney encounters euphoria and increased intelligence, unexpectedly able to participate by playing a piano 12 years ago and answered questions in the class perfectly. Jealous, Jamie flatlines, but had the troubling near death encounter as he sees his ex-girlfriend. Jamie and Courtney begin seeing visions, and are not telling the others. Sophia and Marlo followed Flatline and suit, for the rising number of minutes. The two experience identical positive outcomes as Courtney.


The Writers View:

When we talk of remaking a film, it should be a good try to make the first movie a better one out of a new idea and that something should be that impressive to start anew. If the original movie was already solid one and both the critics and the audiences accepted it, then the remake should be harder and more solid that when compared to the first one, there will be no ashamed or else don’t bother remaking it all. This film is a movie that was released way back in 1990 and it is an enjoying film to watch, although the overall outcome has so many matters of its own. In this movie, it still needs some improvement and the version of the movie becomes the supernatural thriller when the time came for their third act, making the viewers to watch a confusing film at all.

Martin returned them the favor by requesting Steven to come to his mother’s home and have dinner. Right after the meal, he tries to leave, and Martin insisted for him to stay and watched a movie with the family. Martin left them through halfway of the movie, and his mother creates the sexual proceeds with Steven, who rapidly rebuffs her and then goes home. Within the following days, Martin’s demanded Steven’s more time and it grows frequently and desperately, but Steven did not reply. Just one sunrise when Bob was awakened and discovered that cannot feel the legs, he became paralyzed. Anna and Steven rushed him to the hospice, and wherein the full neurological tests revealed that nothing is totally wrong with him. Although he briefly recovered, Bob was still unable to walk. Although the elder Murphys lean to Bob, Martin meets Kim for a date.


The Writers View:

The movie has a full brilliant metaphors, and if you are aware of the Greek mythology with its history to comprehend most of it. The movie is not a comedy or a horror film. It is a thriller drama with strong religious traces. It is the mixture between that Binding of Isaac with a story of Job. In whatever mystic being is accountable for grueling the two kids have that moral lesson that is well described like that “eye for an eye”. This is something that humanity would have conquered in the coming 2000 years. The picture ends with a completed happy finale, where a father will simply kill a member of their family. This really works in the implications that a punishment stops.

Nica became part of the normal crowd therapy session that have Malcolm, the man having multiple identity crisis; Angela, the old woman that believes she is already dead; Claire, the woman that burned her own house down; and lastly Madeleine, the patient that smothered her baby son to death. The doctor, Foley presented some and new therapy technique that involved the Good Guy stuff doll in the group. Most of their patients were unsettled with the doll, but not for Madeleine, that treated it as her own baby.


The Writers View:

Just the same with the other Chucky movies, Brad Dourif is absolutely delighted for the voice of that killer doll. It felt that events has transpired in the film help in showing how passionate Mr. Dourif still has for voicing the same character and the choices he has been a voice actor. Nica as a returning character has some very interesting personality development to the entire movie whilst that comes up to terms with the actions in the Curse of Chucky as well as facing Chucky again. Unlike most of the sequels that seemed to throw the continuity out, the movie did a great job with the throwing back to its former entries with a franchise in the subtle. Also, the practical effects and the sum of gore being used was really admirable.

In year 2104, after 11 years, the expedition of Prometheus, the ship Covenant colonization is bounded for Origae-6, the remote planet, with 15 crews, 2 thousand migrants in stasis, and about 1,140 human embryos on board. The ship was monitored by the Walter, the present model android that physically looks like David. The stellar burst breaks the ship, and kills 47 colonists. Walter ordered the ship’s computer in waking the crews, which included some of the married couples. Jake Branson, the ship’s captain was burnt alive when the stasis pod malfunctioned. During the repair of the ship, the crews pick-up the radio transmission coming from the habitable nearby planet.

The Writers View:

In this movie, there were no suspense and no horror. An enduring stained on the contract that will make you feel grimy after watching it. There are no much expectations in this film. There was a less knowledge about it rather than being a sequel of the Prometheus. The movie did not have even a single redeeming scene. The plot is rambling and quite frankly with a total mess. Sadly, the editing was horrendous, and the scores totally forget the cinematography that went weirdly terrible.

Wilfred James or “Wilf” goes to the city hotel to write his affirmation of the crime he performed in 1922.

In 1922, James was a farmer that lives in Hemingford Home in Nebraska together with Arlette, his wife, and Henry their 14 years old son. Arlette and Wilf were in a fight about selling or not the land they just inherited. However, Arlette wanted to vend up totally to use the money for opening a dress shop that is in Omaha. The couple discussed their divorce, and Arlette was resolute that Henry should be coming with her also. Wilf settles on convincing his son in assisting him to kill Arlette to shun him from being away, embracing the love interest of Henry, Shannon at stake. Henry unwillingly agrees.

1922-scene-1

James pretended to agree with the sale, soothing Arlette. She settles to celebrate, and became drunk. After bringing her to the bed in an intoxicated stupor, Henry and Wilf killed her, and with intentions of hiding her in a corn field. But, Henry fell down from an ordeal and James settles to throw her remains inside a well. The following day, they also toss the cow to the well, to give an aim for filling inside the well. But, Sheriff Jones had the suspicions following a disappearance. He questioned Wilf regarding Arlette, and with Wilf saying that she goes by herself.

Henry became isolated, causing the girlfriend Shannon to develop concerned. He started to resent the killing. Later, Shannon is exposed to be pregnant. Shannon was sent to the religious organization until this baby is born alive and be given away. But, however, runs away together with Shannon, sending Wilf alone.


The Writers View:

Based on the novel of Stephen King’s of similar title, 1922 is just like Stephen King’s personal edition of Allen Poe’s eternal classic stories that set around Wilfred James, the Nebraska farmer with the bitter wife known as Arlette and the loyal son known as Henry. The hardworking but not that successful farmer discovers himself with increasing pressure from the wife when she visibly begins to express her aggravations living in the state and wanted to find her all of that 100 acres land that she take inheritable and transferred to the huge city. The movie is beautifully done, with an effective slow-burn horror and drama and the unrecognizable Thomas Jane gave his best performances here in his entire career. He is deeply sincere and really a committed performance was given in this movie. The movie is one of the best and deserves some recognition.

He controls Jessie with a handcuff on each of his wrists locked to a bedpost and started to be tough with her, revealing her to shout for assistance. She played along initially first, but soon became not comfortable with the violent fantasy, and so she told him to finish and also uncuff her. After some time of that heated argument, Gerald suffered from a heart beat and then died. His body fell off his bed, leaving Jessie being locked with her hand cuffs. Panicked, she started to shout for some, but knows that nobody will be able to hear her.

After hours of shouting and the sun start to set down, Jessie became tired and weak. The dog she provides with food earlier walks inside the room and snuffled over Gerald’s corpse. Jessie attempts to scare it so it will go away, but it just bites a piece from Gerald’s arm and then ate it by the main entrance fronting her.

These hallucinations reminded Jessie about the tag that she put over the head shelf, where she rolled to a straw so she may drink the water.


The Writers View:

Individually, we are rating, liking and disliking movies. For this film, there are many people that says they like it, others says, they don’t. It is just clear that the film is quite a polarize novel. The movie makes the viewers feel excited about what is going to be its outcome when it became a movie. The movie is really enjoyable, knowing that it is one of King’s novels and became a movie adaptation. It is very interesting to know how they come up with such an ending that will be a talk of the town, and in most cases, this is just one movie that became a better version of the book.

In this movie, the characters fell into a predictable horror film tropes. It is a bit silly when they have been scared already by the Pennywise for many times. What really saves this movie is he kidding performances. Bill really did a great job with the Pennywise. But, he lacks that charm wherein Tim Curry had, but still, these are big gaps that are going to fill-in with this film. In particular, Lieberher and Lillis, being the kids were really amazing with their performances. The viewers also felt the empathy for the bullied Henry, played by Hamilton. While Wolfhard the joker; and Finn also did well with their performance.
