Mr. Rabbey's revenge.
17 July 2010 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

His name is Mr.Rabbey and he is the host of puppet show.He loves children and murders their parents.But he kills only parents,who are abusing their children.Mr.Rabbey rides a bike and even talks in a childish falsetto."The Psychopath" is a bizarre horror film that inspired Buddy Giovinazzo's "Maniac 2".The main performance of Tom Basham is gloriously creepy and convincing.The film lacks gore,but the killings are pretty vicious and mean-spirited.The abusive parents are loathsome and the final twist is supremely bizarre.If you are into 70's horror you can't miss "The Psychopath".A different kind of serial killer cinema.7 abusive parents out of 10.
