      Audience Member Really schlocky, but campy fun. There's not quite as much gore as his other films, but it's quality gore and quite gruesome, funnily enough. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Typically ridiculous Herschell Gordon Lewis opus, with a mercifully short running time. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member When some college-age girls go missing, their friends start to investigate when the police aren't much help. The focus appears to be on an address which leads the investigators to a home occupied by and elderly lady and her mentally-challenged son. The lady runs a wig business and it is learned her son kills and scalps young ladies to help his mom's business. Pretty funny with good gore. Watch with 2000 Maniacs, Wizard of Gore, and Blood Feast. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member Insane! Hilarious! A colored version of Psycho! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/12/23 Full Review Audience Member This H.G. Lewis movie didn't have as much blood and gore as his other films, I think there are (ironically) only two scenes with blood and gore. And the rest is the silly main girl sneaking around like she's Velma from Scooby-Doo, except that she never solves a crime. Overall, it's entertaining, but I think this movie could have been better, even by 60s b-horror standards. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Audience Member There are only 2 funny scenes in this trash gore flick, the talking celophane heads at the start & the drive-in scene where the film on the screen is more funnier than the film shown right before your very eyes. Love that line ("gimme a beer...") Apart from that it's the typical Herschell Gordon Lewis flick. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews
