IT’S NOT CRANBERRY SAUCE!!!

What do you get if you combine Thanksgiving, American TV star Louise Lasser (Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman), killer 80s synths and some of the most gruesome special effects in all of slasher history courtesy of Ed (Terminator 2) French. Why, it’s Blood Rage of course!

Twins Todd and Terry seem like sweet boys that is, until one of them takes an axe to face of a fellow patron at the local drive-in. Todd is blamed for the bloody crime and institutionalised, whilst twin brother Terry goes free. Ten years later and, as the family gathers around the table for a Thanksgiving meal, the news comes in that Todd has escaped. But has the real killer in fact been in their midst all along? One thing’s for sure, there will be blood and rage!

Shot in 1983 but not released until 1987, Blood Rage (re-cut and shown in theatres as Nightmare at Shadow Woods) is a gloriously gruesome slice of 80s slasher heaven now lovingly restored (in 3 versions no less!) from original vault elements for its first ever official home video release.

Underrated

I'd never heard of this one before the Arrow release, but it's really a terrific low rent slasher. If you enjoy these things, this is one likely to have flown under your radar but it is well worth your time. Watch the Blood Rage cut first, then the integral cut after. Don't bother with the Nightmare at Shadow Woods version, it trims out all the insane violence (think "Intruder" levels). If you want more obscure slashers from Arrow, I recommend The Mutilator and The Slayer, but do not endorse Satan's Blade.
