Scream Bloody Murder (1973)

Director: Marc B. Ray

Starring: Fred Holbert, Leigh Mitchell, Angus Scrimm

More info: IMDb

Tagline: Pray That It Never Happens To You!

Plot: A disturbed boy kills his father with his farm tractor and his arm is mangled in the process. He's taken to a mental hospital where he's outfitted with a hook to replace his lost hand and, years later, he's eventually released from the asylum. He returns home to find his mother has remarried, which sets him off on a murderous rampage.

My rating: 3/10

Will I watch it again? Nope.

#63 on Dusk to Dawn Drive-In Trash-o-Rama Show Vol. 1 (part of the TRAILER TRASH PROJECT)

Yet another dull early 70s horror flick with very little to keep your interest. The guy who played the sailor (Ron Bastone) looking for action was funny. He should have been in the whole thing. At least there would've been something remotely entertaining to keep me awake. It's funny seeing Angus Scrimm looking so young. I guess I never thought he was.


The gore is minimal and the nudity is non existent. Not what I'm looking for in a horror flick from this era. I can't even blame my expectations on this one. I had none to start with.
