“This Thanksgiving, it’s not cranberry sauce!” This hilariously trashy turkey day slasher flick goes straight to the head of the dinner table of terror thanks to a tasty menu of sleaze, gore and full-flavored ‘80s absurdity. Filmed in 1983, but not released until 1987 (always a VERY good sign), Blood Rage revolves around twin brothers, Todd and Terry. As kids, Terry murders a teen couple at a drive-in (don’t ask why), and, being a dutiful twin, Todd takes the blame and gets sent to a mental institution. Ten years later, Todd escapes and comes home for Thanksgiving dinner (without an invitation!) and a series of gruesome murders ensue, with an all-around sense of confusion surrounding which twin is really the axe-wielding maniac and which one is just trying to finish his cornbread stuffing. Shot primarily at a strange apartment complex in sunny Florida, Blood Rage is a hugely entertaining mess that shows just what happens when you combine 1970s TV sitcom star Louise Lasser as a kooky mom, a killer synth score, and a bunch of truly outrageous gore effects, all served up on a bloody plate of holiday family dysfunction. A true turkey day anti-classic. (Dir. by John Grissmer, 1987, USA, 82 mins., Not Rated)
