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

Didn't make much sense...
10 January 2016 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

"Dead on Appraisal" is a sleazy low budget movie. Yes, and when that is said you might think 'why watch it?' then. Well, if you like gory movies or splatterfests then you should check out this 2014 movie.

While the story made very Little sense in all its absurdity, then "Dead on Appraisal" was adequate entertainment for what it turned out to be. It is one of those types of movies that you watch simply to satisfy the inner gorehound. The storyline and acting is exactly what you would expect from a movie of this type, but it is all washed away in crimson gore and splatter effects.

However, there is absolutely no repeated viewing value to "Dead on Appraisal". You watch it once, then bag and tag it, never to watch it again.

As for the effects, then I will say that I was rather impressed with what the effects crew managed to put together. The creature designs were just hilarious and good for some laughs.

Take heed that "Dead on Appraisal" falls into a special genre and category of movie that might not appeal to just everybody. If you want a proper movie with a solid storyline, then this is not the movie for you. But if you want a blood-drenched, mindless gorefest, then this is right up your alley.
