“It’s not cranberry sauce.”

As a typical Slasher it starts out with an incident in the past. When the young twins, Todd & Terry, sees their mother making out with a dude at a drive-in cinema, Terry goes balistic and kill a random guy in a car. He put the blood on Todds face, blaming him for the murder. Ten years after Todd escapes from the loony bin. Terry starts killing again. Everybody suspect Todd is the killer, so as the body parts piles up, he himself has to prove his innocence and stop his brother.

Even though the plot is so poor it’s unbearable, this is a highly entertaining gore fest (and the gore is well made). The wooden performances, and fucking stupid dialogue does not help this flick. It’s beyond bad. But for a great B-movie-popcorn-time this is pure fun. Blood, tits & 80’s synth. Grab a beer and some cranberry sauce and dig in!
