Storyline

Real estate agent John Dante has a problem. He's stuck with a house he can't sell. Despite his best efforts, he can't seem to overcome the house's past and the macabre tales that precede it in this haunting anthology. In the first story, THE MORNING AFTER, a group of friends wake up from the party of a lifetime to find a nightmare in the form of the worst bug invasion any homeowner has ever seen. Then there's Freddie Cooper and his band, FREDDIE AND THE GOBLINS; a tale of how Freddie's band mates try to kick him out and get caught up in the young singer's growing psychosis. With his hopes of selling the house fading, John is horrified to hear the story of Robbie, a young veteran of the war in Iraq, who returns home to live with his father Brad in FATHER LAND. Something isn't right, though, as Robbie's dark secret slowly bubbles to the surface. As the house's dark past comes to life, John becomes weary and is convinced the house is cursed and unsellable. In a last ditch effort, his ... Written by Infested Films

Terror Tract did it better 14 years ago!!
8 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Oh my goodness, where to begin.

I saw this at the video store the other day and, after looking at the back of it thought it might be a good black comedy. There were some kooky looking characters that reminded me somewhat of characters from "Meet The Feebles" so I decided to take a chance. As so many will say when they are tearing something down, I am an avid horror fan. I've been reading horror for more than 40 years, and I grew up on horror films, and haunted houses. I've even written horror, and written, produced, and directed several horror shorts over the years. So, it's safe to say I do know my way around a chainsaw, machete, or graveyard.

That brings us to this film. I'm almost at a loss for words here. Yes it is an anthology style film, with another story running through the whole thing to hold it together. The back of the DVD cover looks pretty neat, and the title is kinda catchy. Here ends the nice comments.

This was a film that couldn't make up it's mind what it wanted to be. At times it took itself way to seriously, at other times it tried to throw itself headlong in to a dark comedy genre it just couldn't quite reach. "Tales From The Darkside:The Movie" was able to blend suspense, comedy, gore, and horror into one cohesive story with a good backing through line. "Terror Tract" starring the late great John Ritter, took the "hard to sell house because of tragedy" to a hilarious, and tension filled, level, succeeding in giving us multiple stories with a cohesive backing story. Dead on Appraisal", fails at all levels to attain anything even remotely close to these other films. At least one of the stories has a plot device that really challenges your ability to suspend belief, and leaves you with more questions than answers. The acting is wooden, the special effects, with a few exceptions, could have reached amazing heights, but they just fell short, and the demon, the less said the better. My 6 year old thought it was pretty awesome, but he loves excessive gore, and things that explode. This is a kid that normally can't sit through a horror film, and he loved it. Watch this film at your own risk, that's all I can say. I'm just glad I didn't pay more than $1.80 to rent it, and I might still ask for my money back.
