The American Scream
- 1h 25m
A family wins a free vacation to a mountain resort, where the town is strange and its residents downright odd. The kids soon find themselves in deep trouble, and have to do a bit of literal growing up in order to survive. —Terry Greyzck <email@example.com>
Mitchell Linden, the director is only known for this weird flick. Up to this review it's only available on VHS in the US on the "An Innovid Home Video Release". The cover of the VHS doesn't attract you but still it's classified under horror. The acting was really convincing but what a weird storyline it is. It reminded me a bit of 2000 maniacs but then without the blood. Here we also have a town who can't stand youth and are killing them. But they are doing it in a strange way. This flick never becomes really bloody even as it has a decapitation. There is also a bit of black comedy in it and for this kind of flick there is a good amount of nudity. But as I said, it's so weird, the killing of a baby in a car, man, you just must see it. Or the scene in the toilet. So weird. And when someone is talking about how his family was killed, you see it happen but in slo-mo. Or the strip part...you must see it to believe it. Further on, most of the actors are so far you can think unknown but watch out for the town's reverend, it's played by Antony Kiedis' (yes, singer of Red Hot Chili Peppers)father. But the most famous is Jennifer Darling. She's nowadays performs mostly off screen doing voice-overs. I kept watching mouth wide open from WTF to OMG. Strange flick.
