Fantastic video nasty, I mean this one was pretty much awesome right away as the movie starts out with one of the best car crashes I've ever seen. Then we flash ahead to many years later, the couple who died in the crash had a son and we catch up with his life. He's living with his really odd Aunt who seems to like him an awful lot, she doesn't even want him to leave for college! The kid seems to be going through some struggles, as a star athlete his coach was found out to be a homosexual so everyone is accusing him of being gay...even the cops! Why are the cops involved? Well his psycho aunt "accidentally" killed a television repair man and he somewhat witnessed the accident. This film has a great sense of humor and just when you hope something bad will happen it will...it's so rewarding! Susan Tyrell gives one of the best performances of a looney that I've ever seen...seriously over-the-top awesome in every way. As far as blood and guts go, it's got some but I wouldn't say it's maybe as violent as some of the other video nasties, subject matter however is well a bit shocking. This is great as a movie, only the limp ending makes this a little less fantastic, but this is a must see for sure.
Availability: Never on DVD as far as I understand
