A minor classic. A tale of the grotesque.,
This review is from: Deranged [Dual Format Blu-ray + DVD] (Blu-ray)
I clearly remember seeing stills from Deranged in House of Hammer magazine back in the day. Sadly before I could see it the video nasty purges took it from the video shops. I always wondered what the film was like and now thanks to Arrow films I have finally seen it. What a little cracker of a film and what a super performance by Roberts Blossom (the creepy old guy in Home Alone [DVD] as the killer. It's a gory, grotesque and ghoulish and tells the story Ed Gein, the Wisconsin serial killer. Visually it obviously was a massive source of inspiration for Rob Zombie but the film is nice and low key. Fans of '70's American horror should love this and snap up this excellent uncut Arrow Blu Ray.
