An entertainingly gory, yet unheralded 80's slasher
17 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

Two ten year old twins sneak away from their parents at a drive-in. One of the boys viciously slaughters a man and blames the other for the crime. The latter is sent to a facility for the criminally insane and ten years later he escapes and returns to the family fold while the evil twin sees this as an ideal opportunity to begin a mass killing spree.

Blood Rage is one from the vast selection of slasher movies that came out in the golden period of the genre, the 80's. I was pretty surprised to learn that it was made in 1983 but actually sat on the shelf for four years before being released in '87. My surprise comes from the fact that I have seen a few slasher movies from this time-period and this to me was definitely one of the better ones! So lord only knows why it was deemed unreleasable until the late 80's, when the slasher craze had begun to wane. Anyhow, for what it's worth, this one was somewhat entertaining and I was never truthfully bored. It has a typical dumb story-line naturally but what can really be expected? More to the point it contains quite a commendably copious amount of OTT violence, including bloody slashings, a woman cut in half, someone getting a fork in the neck, while we also have hands and heads being lopped off. So, points allocated for effort I would say. It's also probably worth acknowledging too that Mark Soper does pretty well with the dual role of the weak and crazy twin brothers, I mean we're not talking Jeremy Irons in Dead Ringers (1988) levels of thespian emoting but he did well enough with what he was given I thought. All-in-all, this is not a bad effort at all for this kind of thing.
