That's Not Cranberry Sauce!
26 November 2014 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

A man (Mark Soper) is blamed for murders actually committed by his evil twin (also Mark Soper).

This film is written by Bruce Rubin, the Oscar-winning creator of "Ghost" and "Jacob's Ladder", and stars Woody Allen's ex-wife Louise Lasser. Even Ted Raimi makes a small cameo towards the beginning.

This film, part of the 1980s slasher cycle, is awfully bloody and gory, but seems to be largely forgotten. It has not seen a proper release since the 1987 Prism Entertainment VHS, and now has to be viewed on CrypticTV or YouTube in less than great quality.

Who owns the rights? At this point, if a negative is available, it should be relatively cheap, and would be a solid investment for Scream Factory or a similar distributor.
