    Nothing brings people closer than family. Or further apart. See a family put through the ringer in the deadly Death Knot which comes out on Jan. 17. Cornelia Sunny ensures audiences don’t have quite the sunny time in this brooding and somber tale of deceit and deception now available on Blu-ray and DVD as well as through some streaming services. If terror and horror is your thing then this Well Go USA title may be too your liking. And it’s not really that glory. Call it a bonus.

    Instead of your typical blood and guts slay them and gut them variety of terror Death Knot is quite muted in comparison. Here the atmosphere is oh so weary as a couple and their friend set out to bury their mom. Ah, but the dearly departed is no ordinary lady.

    Feared by some, loathed by others the dead mom was regarded as some sort of witch by the local villagers who she resided with. So when the three urbanites decide to pay their last respects they enter a hornets net of suspicion, uncertainty and hatred. Who knows how it will all end.

    They say it’s not right to speak Ill of the dead but that’s exactly what the family encounter as they learn first hand of the black magic and evil spirits supposedly surrounding their loved one. So a chill is in the air as these three family members learn more about their mom, her strange home and a deadly spell that can prove fatal.

    Made with English subtitles Death Knot is Indonesian and is your typical b-grade thriller that has some good acting but all in all pretty standard fare.
