Seeking shelter and aid they come across a house occupied by a man-hating mother and her daughter... our trio soon wish they hadn't. Written by
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.
