This was pure and simply a blast...
7 October 2019 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Now, a movie such as this 2019 one titled "Killer Sofa", is one that you have to sit down and watch with a light heart and be prepared to laugh. You know it is going to be a campy spoof horror, so I don't understand why "Killer Sofa" has been rated so poorly.

I sat down to watch it expecting to laugh and be entertained, and I was on both accounts. This is a hilarious movie in its own right. I mean, a recliner that is possessed by a dybbuk and hellbent on killing people? Come on. What is not to love here? This is not meant to be a serious and scary horror movie people. You need to approach this movie and not expect to be in for your typical horror movie, because this is a comedy through and through.

The entire movie was a blast, and I loved the appearance of the possessed recliner, it was just glorious. And I must take my hat off for writer and director Bernie Rao, because this was definitely a one of a kind and truly unique and outstanding movie.

One thing about the movie though, the title. Now this is a recliner chair, not a sofa. So that was a little bit misleading. But hey, not really a big deal.

The cast in the movie were doing good jobs with their given characters, and it is always a treat for me to watch a movie where I am largely unfamiliar with the faces of the actors and actresses, as to not associate them with previous roles played and previous movies.

It is amazing that every now and again these pseudo-low budget movies pop up and prove that you don't need a billion dollar budget to make something that is entertaining.

I can warmly and highly recommend that you take the time to sit down and watch "Killer Sofa" if you get the chance.
