The film had already received notoriety in the UK after being featured on the BBC News as part of a report concerning the availability of uncertified video films. Even though the film had received a cinema certificate by the BBFC this led to it being banned and included on the DPP list of 72 video nasties. The film was eventually passed uncut in the UK in 2005. See more »

Don Gronquist's "Unhinged" is a pretty good slasher film.A trio of young girls(led by Laurel Munson as Terry)head off to a rock concert,only to end up knocked unconscious during the car accident on a desolate country road in the middle of thunderstorm.The girls wake to find themselves recovering in the isolated estate of weird spinster and her equally weird invalid mother.Soon some creepy happenings will begin...Director Don Gronquist generates a fair amount of suspense and there is some pretty graphic gore on display.The film is grainy and dimly-lit,so fans of early 80's low-budget horror won't be disappointed.The acting is horrible,but the climax is pretty shocking and unexpected.To sum up,"Unhinged" isn't a great slasher film by any means,but if you're looking for obscure horror give this one a look.Recommended.
