Director: Ken Wiederhorn
Main Stars: Lauren Tewes, Jenifer Jason Leigh, John DiSeanti
Storyline: Women are being murdered and a new host is on the hunt who it might be
Review (Spoils): I was about 5min into this film and knew that I was in love with it. It screamed late 70s early 80s horror. It has the grainy feel and it reminded me of Dressed to Kill or something from Dario. From the opening seeing of the dead girl in the creek to almost end I was in entranced with this film. It screamed classic Yacker horror film. We have a noisy new anchor named Jane who is upset with all murders of women and she believes she knows who the killer could be and because of it she might have placed her mute sister Tracy in trouble.
The film has the typical weird lonely man killing and raping women as the cute Jane tries to save the world. Yes, the feel can be uneasily but what the fuck do you want it’s a horror film. The blood is a nice light pink in this film and yes, the ending can be cheesy, but they have some cool kills in this film. A nasty beheading with a meat cleaver, some throat slits, some stabs and a few ripped blouses. Sure, we have some characters doing stupid shit, but this film still rocked.
Rating: If you like Dario, Dressed to Kill or Maniac (the original) you will need to check this out. This movie was fun and I have to thank my wife for finding it as the more I think about it the more of gem this is. Don’t forget the feed the fishes!
