Laughing psycho.
6 January 2010 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

A muscled mental patient escapes from an asylum and promptly starts murdering people.The killer is played by Jake Seinfeld and wears no mask or costume of any kind.He laughs almost non-stop and becomes truly insane.A Thanksgiving meal of a 'normal' American family is going to be ruined by a slasher."Home Sweet Home" is one hell of a bad film.It's very cheaply made with atrocious acting and improvised dialogue.But the killings are plentiful including running over with a car or electrocution by electric guitar.The character of mime has to be seen to be believed.He carries the guitar around with him at all times,playing it loud as he annoys everyone around him at all times.I had some fun with this inept and plot less slasher,so let's bite this turkey on Thanksgiving Day.
