Oliver has been confined at a private institution for many years, living naked in a padded cell with only a stainless steel slab for a bed. When he escapes he wreaks havoc on the institution and staff before being subdued with massive doses of tranquilizers. Now in a coma and requiring twenty-four-hour care, his family cannot afford the medical bills and he is brought home where at first everything is normal. His cousin, Jeff, takes an interest in nursing him and soon those around him start dying in horrible ways... Written by
A Saimese twin, institutionalized from birth, comes back with a vengeance.
From the poster "The family secret is out," I knew this was going to be a good one. And it was. A stellar production, given the budget, this film is a must see. Especially impressive is the dialogue which is authentic and realistic, which is unusual for these kinds of movies. As well, the depth of the plot makes this one stand out from the other cookie-cutter slashers.
Particularly attractive is the Masters in Low Budget Filmmaking extra with William Grefe and Dean Gates that comes on the DVD - worth the price alone.
Two thumbs and two toes up.
