seemingly overlooked slasher with OK plot and respectable gore
14 April 2005 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

Two twins in the back of their mother's car at a drive-in movie sneak out while their mom is making out with her boyfriend. One of them, Terry, grabs a small axe and kills a couple making out in another car. He smears the blood on his silent brother Todd. Apparently nobody finds his fingerprints in the smeared blood, or notices the blood that's still on him. According to the drive-in marquee, the movie showing is The House That Cried Murder!, which had been written and produced by the director of this film, Blood Rage.

Todd gets committed for ten years, at which point he regains his memory of that night to some degree, as well as speaks a little. His therapist is inclined to believe he is innocent, but still wants to treat him so he is ready to rejoin society. His mother doesn't want to believe it.

The mother announces she will be getting married, and they learn Todd has escaped. This is apparently enough to start Terry killing again: his mother has found a man again, and he has his brother as a scapegoat again.

Terry starts killing people, and indeed people are inclined to believe Todd is responsible. Some of the killings are fairly gory, at least in the version titled Blood Rage. Nightmare at Shadow Woods is apparently a different cut of the movie with less gore.

Louise Lasser as the mother was pretty hard to take; I didn't care for her acting at all. Unfortunately, the director apparently did like it, and there are numerous long takes of her talking on the telephone and emoting. I didn't particularly care for Mark Soper as Terry either, though in the subdued role of Todd he was OK.
