Netflix Instant Watch: "Deathdream" aka "Dead of Night" (1974)

A married couple receives the news that their son Andy has died in the line of duty during the Vietnam War. In a shocking twist they're informed that there was actually a mistake and their son is in fact alive! Hurray! Unfortunately, Andy comes back hungry for blood. Directed by Bob Clark, who also brought us the horror comedy "Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things", "Black Christmas" and, oddly enough "A Christmas Story"... this one is worth a watch. While it doesn't have a lot of big scares or gore (it's rated PG) the film oozes creepiness and uneasiness while also taking a look at the problems facing veterans in the war. "Deathdream" is available for your viewing pleasure on Netflix Instant Watch. Check out the trailer below:
