If you're in the market for late eighties, cheap gory fun then you might want to check out this one, starring Scott Speigel of "associated with Sam Raimi" fame (although you'd be better checking out his film Intruder first to be honest).
Three crazed killers, Crawldaddy, Phink, and the other one, roam Ohio, killing hitchhikers and turning their skin into leather. After killing some Vegas hot shot, their van breaks down and they end up at the house of car mechanic Miles and his chatterbox wife, while next door ex-cop Paul is drinking himself daft and being harassed by his ex-wife and her attorney. Things aren't going to turn out well for everyone, as after killing a delivery boy and a Jehovah's Witness, the killer set their sights on Miles and the rest, not knowing that Paul has some severe hardware to hand.
Basically a very, very cheap excuse to show loads of gore effects, Skinned Alive's flaw comes from it's almost complete lack of storyline. There's no real background to our killers, and only the role of Paul is given any kind of background. However, I'm not all about backstory due to various head injuries over the years, so a 74 minute long film full of gore was enough for me. I like ultra-low budget films and this one was good enough (it has a nice healthy dose of humour that helps greatly). Skinned Alive is by no means a great film, but it passes the time nicely. Spiegel's directed Intruder did it much better, but this would make a good companion to that film.
Also starring that J.R Bookwater guy whom I've heard lots about but only own one film by (The so-so Demon Fire).
