The film was once on the 'video nasty' list in the UK and appeared on the infamous DPP 72 list of video nasties. The 1992 video release was cut by 10 secs to a drill murder by the BBFC and the 2001 DVD issue was culled from the same cut print. See more »
Well, that was a downer! And I mean that in the best sense. In fact, The Dorm That Dripped Blood has an ending so mean...so cruel...so nuts...that it actually elevates the entire film that came before it. Before that moment, The Dorm That Dripped Blood basically clips along as a decent enough college slash 'em up, but the ending really sends it over the top.
The film follows a group of college kids staying over the holiday break to take inventory and clean up an old deserted dorm. Soon enough, they find themselves sliced and diced by an unseen murderer. Why? Who knows. People handle the stress of college in their own unique ways.
The murders are mostly well staged and there's a handful of suspense here and there. Most of the actors are fine if nothing else. There's a fun cameo by Daphne Zuniga and a pretty cool music score by Christopher Young if that helps.
All in all, The Dorm That Dripped Blood is a decent little time waster. You could do much worse.
