THE FOUR (Blu-Ray Review)

The Four Blu-Ray

THE FOUR available 4/9 on DVD and Blu-Ray from Well Go USA

Asian cinema has had its influences on Western film, especially in recent years with many American horror pictures being remade from Far East offerings.  There’s something we’re fascinated with in the cultures and customs from that part of the world; it’s exciting and mystical, maybe even dangerous.  ”The Karate Kid” and “Gremlins” use this Eastern mysticism to cure Daniel-San’s busted leg and to create an army of reptilian hooligans and not once do we question it.  So imagine my surprise when I was watching “The Four” (available 4/9 on DVD and Blu-Ray from Well Go USA) and an army of the undead is raised using unquestioned Western mysticism in the form of voodoo! It made me giggle with delight as I felt like maybe, just maybe aspects of my culture are mysterious, too.
