I just watched a new horror film that was great!  It’s called “Death Do Us Part,” and it was just released by Anchor Bay Entertainment.

“Death Do Us Part” was written and produced by Julia Benson, Peter Benson, and Ryan Copple.  It was directed by Nicholas Humphries and stars Julia Benson, Peter Benson, Kyle Cassie, Emily Ullerup, Christine Chatelain, and Bejiman Ayres.

“Death Do Us Part,” is about six people who go to a cabin in the woods to have a “Jack and Jill” bachelor and bachelorette party.  They rent the cabin for the weekend from a very strange man and one-by-one they start getting killed. 

I don’t want to talk too much about the plot, because there are so many twists and turns, and I don’t want to spoil anything.  The surprises are what make the movie fun to watch.

I really liked the story a lot and thought that it was very cleverly written and very suspenseful.  I bet that you will not figure out what is going on until the end. I have seen hundreds of horror films, and I was not able to figure out the ending.

It’s great to see new and fresh ideas for horror films.  Today, there are way too many remakes and reboots, and I really am getting tired of them.  I get excited whenever I come across a horror film that has never been done before, and that’s the case with “Death Do Us Part.”

The characters are very believable, and the actors did a great job in my opinion. 

The special effects looked great and were very well done.

There is a bonus feature on the DVD called “Death Do Us Part: Behind the Scenes,” and that is very entertaining.  It has a lot of interviews with the cast and crew, and there are tons of behind the scenes video that is really neat to see.

I would highly recommend that you check out Anchor Bay Entertainment’s “Death Do Us Part” on DVD. It is a fun and very suspenseful horror film that will keep you on the edge of your seat. 

“Death Do Us Part” is rated “R” for violence and language, some sexual material and brief drug use.
