Toys of Terror Available on DVD January 19

I was provided a link/DVD to view the film. Opinions are my own.

If you love suspense shows like The Haunting of Hill House, Puppet Master or The Haunting, Toys of Terror has that same vibe. My teen loves suspense and horror films and this one I approved him to watch. It has the jump scares and the come-to-life terror toys so it is thrilling enough for adults and teens. There is a character that gets a piece of wood stuck in his side and that’s about as gory as it gets. These toys are truly out for death and harm but in the end this film plays it safe. A great beginner ‘horror’ film for those who scare easily. This will not disturb them. It is fun and you get that – ‘old orphanage turns haunted house’ movie you crave.

Synopsis of the movie – TOYS OF TERROR

David and Hannah Cashman have promised their family a fun Christmas getaway, but when they arrive at a grand, old house in the snowy woods of Washington and are greeted by familiar construction foreman, the kids realize their parent’s plan to make it a working vacation; renovating the place in the hopes of flipping it. Alicia, the eldest, is annoyed but the younger kids are soon distracted when, wandering through the creepy mansion, they find a stash of old toys in an abandoned playroom and take to them instantly.

Before long, they seem to be inseparable from their new playthings, much to the consternation of their nanny Rose who, along with Alicia, senses that something in the house is not quite right. As stranger and stranger things start to happen, Rose and Alicia have a hunch that there may be more to the history of the old house than the Cashman’s are letting on. Can the family escape with their lives – or will they stay forever in the crumbling house, never to celebrate another Christmas again?

‘THE NEW MUTANTS’ Available now

Release date: November 17, 2020. The New Mutants is based on the Marvel Comic (X-Men) Series. Available on Digital, 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™ and DVD

“THE NEW MUTANTS” In this action-filled film, five young people who demonstrate special powers are forced to undergo treatment at a secret institution – allegedly to cure them of the dangers of their powers. But it’s soon clear that their containment is part of a much bigger battle between the forces of good and evil!
Maisie Williams, Henry Zaga, Blu Hunt, Charlie Heaton and Anya Taylor-Joy in “The New Mutants.”

My son is 12 and LOVES Marvel. We enjoyed this movie as a fun (teen-fun) movie with plenty of the Marvel Superhero, undercover feel. As you determine who the real villain is and as they discover this world they have one-by-one become confined to they will have to set differences and disagreements aside to stay safe. The cast is great – actors you’ve seen in Stranger Things and Game of Thrones and the cast really makes this an engaging film.
