Wes Craven made Deadly Blessing all the way back in 1981. If you don’t remember what American TV movies from the 1980s are like, then you’re fortunate. Generally – with a few honourable exceptions – they were dreadful affairs, usually thoroughly bowdlerised so that no one could possibly get offended about anything, and with soap opera acting principally calculated to ensure the thesps didn’t emote too much and make their carefully prepared makeup run. Deadly Blessing has a little too much nudity and violence to be one of those, but it comes close, and that’s only one of its problems.
