If Killing Spree has one thing going for it, it would have to be the ingenious killing methods used throughout the movie. Where else can you find machete ceiling fans? Definitely for fans of low-budget 80's horror films that were really cheesy, yet very enjoyable. Utterly hilarious dialogue and over-the-top characters make this movie memorable. Interesting choices of camera angles and lighting effects.
Not everyone will "get" Killing Spree. I could see why someone would think this was a waste of a movie. It is not for everyone however, it is obviously for a small niche audience.
Fans should be aware that there are two DVD versions for Killing Spree on the market. The first one is a bare-bones unauthorized bootleg (the cheapo). The quality on it is okay, but there is no menu, scene selection, or anything else for that matter. The other version that recently came out from Sub Rosa is the official authorized DVD edition. It has a much nicer transfer and includes a great 90-minutes documentary/behind-the-scenes with an introduction from scream queen Debbie Rochon. Also included are two feature-length audio commentaries with director Tim Ritter on the first one. The second audio commentary is with Asbetos Felt, Joel D. Wynkoop and R.M. Hoopes.
