User Reviews

A sad, savage tale of amok madness.
8 September 2003 | by EyeAskanceSee all my reviews

An earnestly crafted psycho thriller infused with a bit more constancy and seriousness than the median example of its type. Making it especially unsettling is the factual bedrock which underlies the grim story...this is most certainly a laundered elucidation of Richard Speck's notorious killing spree, to at least some degree of accuracy.

A communal household of young nurses in Ireland becomes a hellhole of horror when they are collectively besieged by a criminally disunited male youth, a recent veteran of the war in Vietnam.. His deep-seated anti-female resentments ignite with a flicker, and gradually escalate to a firestorm...the ensuing terror, torture, and death are gruesomely depicted with a straightforward, blank-faced directness that sensitive viewers might find disagreeable. Those of a tougher skin, however, may appreciate NAKED MASSACRE for its surprising testicular brass...a rattling nightmare to challenge the viewer's emotional acumen. Gritty, grievous, and plegmatic, this film is certainly not without its flaws, but it does answer loud and clear to its grim calling.

6/10
