A psychodrama set in that strange limbo where bloody horror meets sci fi, it exposes age-old vindictiveness, undying jealousy & Freudian friction in a small-town slice of Americana that seems sleepy, but harbours evil grudges from beyond the grave.
The title Dead Kids makes it sound like a slasher picture or a zombie film [but] it's really a mix of mad scientist thriller and revenge movie dropped into a somewhat surreal recreation of small-town Midwest America.
Though lackadaisical pacing steals a lot of the tension, especially in the shrug of a climax, Dead Kids is full of wondrous scene-by-scene oddities[...]
Both grisly and absurd.
...a campy B-horror movie with some very funny moments.
Director Michael Laughlin knows how to set up good, pleasant scares, and the acting is solid.
Oddball, well-made and original take on the 80s teen-slasher genre
We need more dance numbers. We need more Tangerine Dream.
an interestingly quirky teen slasher, a bit less generic than your usual slasher flick from the 80s. The plot is decent but quite slow-paced, and there's the occasional brutal stabbing murder, even though they're not very graphic they're nasty enough. It's got a cool musical score by Tangerine Dream too. Overall it's not a brilliant film but worth a look if you like slow-building atmospheric slashers.
This horror movie has a silly plot, but it's so bad, I loved it, it's unintentionally funny and enjoyable because of that.
