Happy Mother’s Day! Let’s watch BLOOD RAGE! I know this movie takes place on Thanksgiving but that doesn’t mean it’s not a swell Mother’s Day movie too! I’d say BLOOD RAGE (aka NIGHTMARE AT SHADOW WOODS) is a better Mother’s Day movie than MOTHER”S DAY but then again, what isn’t? LOUISE LASSER plays Maddie, a caring mother of two twins. One of the twins is a crazy psycho and one of them is not. One Thanksgiving the nutty twin escapes from the funny farm and blood-soaked, identity mix-up hijinks ensue. BLOOD RAGE has got to be one of the funniest slasher movies I have ever seen. It just kills me. The music is out of control, there’s a ridiculous attempt at exposition using a psychiatrist’s voice-over narration, the violence is slapstick hilarious and the incredible LASSER is constantly forced to fill in the gaps in the script with lunatic ad-libbing! Frankly, it’s non-stop awesome. The strange thing is I don’t think MARK SOPER who plays twins Todd & Terry is half bad! He kinda reminds me of ALEX McARTHUR in RAMPAGE (1987)! If you really love your mother, you will force her to watch this with you and if you really love yourself, you’ll invite your evil twin along too!
