Granny (Stella Stevens) has had it with her family. They are greedy, ruthless people who probably want her dead. And how right she is, as they try to attempt to poision her on Thanksgiving day and change her will so they inherit everything. The only good that comes out of the family is her son's illegmate daughter (Shannon Wherry) who has token care of granny most of her life and is supposed to be sole heir to Granny's estate. Well one day, Granny recieves a potion that will give her eternal life, if she and the potion stay out of the sun though. Well guess what, it gets exposed to the sun and granny dies. However she comes back to life as a homicidal, ax swinging demon.

Instead of trying to be your standard, routine slice and dice horror film this feature just goes all out sparing nothing in the process. Stella Stevens is in great form and has some of the funniest one liners in recent memory and Shannon has never been more appealing. The death scenes are possibly some of the most creative and violent in horror film history and the ending is a knockout, especially the dinner table scene with the whole family gathered including dad. Much better then you would expect.

Rated R; Extreme Graphic Violence, Nudity, Profanity, and Sexual Situations.
