Twisted Nightmare
3 February 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

BOMB out of ****

Absolutely horrible film with nothing at all to reccomend besides the fact that you'll get an extremely large, stomach-contracting laugh out of this cheap slasher flick, which could without a doubt be the worst of all time. The plot is little, and is about a group of teenagers who go to a camp they went to a while back where their friend's retarded brother was burned to death. Now, a mysterious maniac is on the loose killing everyone who was partially responsible for the death of the boy. Bad acting, bad editing, bad direction, bad script, bad lighting and tones more bad stuff makes this one of the worst movies of all time. Extremely into the 80's as everyone has a mullet or some sort of bad hair, and they all drive the same cheesy little car!

Rated R for violence, gore, full nudity, sex and profanity.
