DVD Review: Venom

Finally, the unstoppable-killer-movie has returned! It's been years since we've had a decent Jason, Freddy or Michael type of killer grace the screen. I'm happy to say that Venom does a nice job of bringing it back. When an old voodoo woman gets into an accident, Ray, the town's quiet tow truck driver, tries to save her. She tells him to get her suitcase, and when poor old Ray does, he's met with a nasty fate. Ray then is turned into an unstoppable killing machine, filled with the souls of many a bad man. It's up to a group of young people to try and stop him. Plenty of good old fashioned kill scenes, mixed with some fancy editing make this an original bloodfest. The "method of death" is a long forgotten art in Hollywood, but the filmmakers came up with some fun ones here. For a trip down death's memory lane, check out Venom. **** out of *****.
