A young teenage boy is blamed for a Florida neighborhood being terrorized. But the real culprits are a gang of four punks leading a group of local delinquents on a nihilistic lifestyle of destruction and mayhem.
Mrs. Pringle and her son Rodney run a wig store which they stock by scalping young coeds who show up to look at the "room for rent." Meanwhile at the local college, Kathy is determined to figure out who is killing her classmates, much to boyfriend Dave's irritation. When her friend Dawn disappears, Kathy gets closer to the truth as she begins investigating the Pringle's lair.Written by

The opening four-minute segment with the two talking Styrofoam wig blocks was filmed months after production ended in Herschell Gordon Lewis' office in Chicago during post-production when it was discovered that the running time was too short, and Lewis filmed this pre-credits segment to pad out the running time to make the feature over 70 minutes.

This one earned the only video store I knew that carried it multiple rentals... until I wore it out! If you love bad acting, preposterous dialogue and classic gore, you'll want to show Gruesome Twosome to all your friends. Repeat viewings lodge this foolishness, complete with the usual infectious Lewis soundtrack, deep in your psyche. Perhaps the most appealing thing about this one is that it draws some of the most miserable reviews cinema has ever seen. Judge for yourself. And it's short for easy digestion... or, um, indigestion.
