James Reviews Robert O’Hara’s The Inheritance [Blu-Ray Review]

11 May 2011 10:56 PM, PDT | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

Where do I begin with this film The Inheritance? I guess the best place to start in the plot itself. Five cousins drive to their family reunion during a winter storm. They hope to please the elders and secure their inheritance, a fortune that dates back to days of slavery. Their Uncle Melvin (Keith David) welcomes them, but warns them to respect their family traditions. During the weekend, strange things start to appear, blood on the windows and they learn the truths about their family legacy, blood ancestor – Chakabazz, and the ultimate sacrifice they must make in order to get what they deserve.

When I saw the box art, I laughed to be honest. I wasn’t sure if it was a film about people inheriting someone’s decapitated head or a guy who went around like the headless horseman, slicing away heads like crazy. After seeing the film, I »

DVD Review: The Inheritance

24 April 2011 10:01 AM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The Inheritance is an urban horror movie that follows five cousins, Karen (Golden Brooks), Henry (D.B. Woodside), Tyrone (Darrin Dewitt Henson), Lily (Rochelle Aytes), and Simpson (Shawn Michael Howard) on a “family reunion” type gathering to find out about their inheritance they will be receiving.  Naturally it’s a horror movie so things start to go wrong for them after they arrive at the house, in the dead of winter and in the middle of nowhere. They find out things about their ancestors that they end up wishing would have just stayed a secret.

Their uncle Melvin (Keith David) plays host to the small group, there’s a party, people getting hammered and some begin to die. We see some crazy tribal shadows appear at times which are really creepy at times. Blood gets splattered and like I said before, more people die. Other relatives also show up and stories »

The Inheritance and Blood Sacrifice: A Movie Review

17 April 2011 4:00 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

Director/writer: Robert O'Hara.

Tagline: "A new meaning to blood relatives."

Image Entertainment dropped Robert O'Hara's The Inheritance on DVD and Blu-Ray April 12th and the film is one of only a few which features an almost all African American cast. Rusty Cundieff came out with Tales from the Hood in 1991 and Snoop Dog produced Bones in 2001, but overall there have been few horror films with primarily African American actors. That is until now. Robert O'Hara has brought together an excellent cast for this film, including: Keith David (Platoon), Rochelle Aytes (Trick 'r Treat), Golden Brooks and many others. The film is a blend of supernatural mythos and slavery inspired superstition and the film works, except for a cut-off ending.

In the film, the cliche of the African American dying first in horror is reversed. Instead, two Caucasian characters wind up offed before anyone else, with few lines offered »

Exclusive: Keith David on the Terror of 'The Inheritance'

11 April 2011 9:00 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

Actor Keith David is well known among genre fans for his heroic roles in classics like John Carpenter's The Thing and They Live. But in his latest fright film, The Inheritance, David plays a more sinister character, one who invites his nieces and nephews to a family reunion, with the lure of a substantial inheritance, while harboring a devilish secret that could destroy them all. Due out tomorrow (Tuesday, April 12) on Blu-ray and DVD from Image Entertainment, The Inheritance is unique in that it's one of the few horror films I've seen with an almost entirely African-American cast. And it draws on the cultural history of African-Americans to create a new kind of movie monster – Chakabazz, an African deity as merciless »
