A Huge Surprise and a Great Slasher Film
on 6 August 2013
One word of note before we start. Amazon has got this film mixed up with a new movie with the same title in this product description. This film is from 1973.
Well having absolutely no idea what I was getting myself into I dived headlong into this low budget grindhouse slasher from the 70s, and came out the other end a very happy viewer.
Scream Bloody Murder follows a very dysfunctional teenage kid who has a hook for a hand. He has women and sex issues and this leads him to kill anyone who wants a good time. His killing sends him fron town to town until he settles and kind of falls head over heels with a woman. Only thing is she is a prostitute.
I love this film as from the first minute it is in your face and gets on with the killings. There are plenty here, some quite bloody. Which is a surprise given the 15 certificate. The film demands any horror/slasher fans attention, and is enjoyable stuff. It's been directed very well too. So yes the picture isn't great and the acting leaves a lot to be desired. But it's always nice finding a horror gem amongst the tons of rubbish out there, no matter what era.
