Storyline

The door of the mental hospital opens, releasing Ricky from its confines. He takes with him the terrifying memory of his brother Billy's death and the burning image of Mother Superior-the powerful figure that brought about his brother's violent demise. For Ricky, starting a new life means avenging his brother's death. By whatever means necessary, whether it be the cutting edge of a shiny steel knife blade, or the electrifying charge of a set of battery cables, Ricky is set in this blind journey of revenge leading ultimately to Mother Superior. As Mother Superior prays in the dark, we suggest she say an extra prayer for herself, because not even her faith will be enough to stop Ricky. But prayers will do little for in the silent part of this night! Written by Chance

It's A Wretched Life
2 September 2005 | by haxan-1See all my reviews

I watch this one every Christmas. It features a pretty atypical psychopath for the 80's canon in Eric Freeman. He's an intense-looking and mask-free short fuse who at first glance could be either a ski instructor or a paroled sex offender. His animated eyebrows are hypnotic. This feels at once like a slapstick parody and a demented sitcom (" Hey Mom! I'm Dating A Strangler!"). It even has the built-in 'Naughty!' and 'Garbarge Day!'catch phrases. The newer footage with the killer's eye-bulging fits of rage toward any sort of social disruption are more cartoonish and less focused on the childhood Santa trauma than the scenes used from the previous entry. It's actually a shame that more new footage featuring the emotionally-crippled Child-Hulk couldn't be used in their place because their zaniness is so weirdly compelling. The shooting spree through suburbia is broad daylight is priceless. There isn't a single scene in the movie where he doesn't seem alien and out of place. He's so completely ill-equipped to deal with life that his reactions to both the public and the police make him almost zen-like in his fearlessness.
