All Critics (2)

They don't make 'em like this any more, but more surprisingly, it's difficult to believe that they ever did.

Despite an intriguing premise, the pic falters. It seems played only for laughs.

Audience Reviews for Blood Rage (Nightmare at Shadow Woods)

½

Blood Rage is a laughably silly slasher film where the whole premise is void of logic, the acting is horrendous, and the low budget feel poses too many awkward situations. This movie seemed like a small production studio's attempt to capitalize on the Nightmare on Elm Street popularity, but instead of an iconic killer like Freddy Krueger, Blood Rage introduces Todd and his evil twin Terry (both played by Mark Soper). While they were kids, Terry kills someone and blames it on Todd, and everyone without question send Todd to a mental institution because he was too traumatized to tell the truth. One night, ten years later, Todd escapes, which gives Terry the chance to go on a murderous rampage that everyone thinks Todd is the perpetrator. The blood effects are incredibly fake, every actor gives an unintentionally hilarious performance, particularly Louise Lasser who gives one of the most unconvincing breakdowns I've ever seen. All this set to a 80s music score that would be better suited to an action film like The Terminator. Some films can be recommended because they're so bad that they're good. This doesn't quit cross that line. It's just bad.

It's laughable in parts and pretty gory in others but overall a pretty standard entry during the decline of 80's slashers. Find it in its uncut format otherwise you'll be wasting your time.
