Filmed in 1983 and released in 87, this is the beginning of a series of Thanksgiving day mini reviews. I am going to bulk marathon horror films and do a mini review for each. I also saw Thor: Ragnarok. I give it 3 stars mostly for style and Jeff Goldblum.
Blood Rage was fucking awesome. I googled "Thanksgiving horror movies" and this was on most lists. I probably missed some line of dialogue about it being Thanksgiving, cause I don't remember anything about the holiday in this flick.
Oodles of blood, good acting, fantastic 80's music, and a mildly confusing story make this an instant classic. Nudity is there, the pacing is there, the blood is over the top. I'd say since it was filmed in 83 it was actually quite ahead of it's time since it feels late 80's.
It's an obvious entry into the 80's horror slasher genre, and it's pretty scant and thin, but delivers. Basically two twins are both crazy-ish, one in an asylum, and he escapes and is homicidal. He impersonates his bro, but his bro also is maybe a killer...? I wasn't sure, it doesn't matter, and basically just watch the nude girls and the kills, which are plenty and plenty.
I give it 5 stars for an underrated, fantastic 80's slasher to the very definition.
