Critic Reviews for Strange Behavior
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[...]
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
Audience Reviews for Strange Behavior
I gave this a spin sort of expecting something more of a slasher, but honestly the whole film had something of a '50s sci-fi paranoia feel instead of the typical horror flick. It's not too shabby as far as sci-fi/horror fare goes, I'd say give it a rental.
It starts out as a run of the mill slasher film, but then Strange Behavior quickly evolves into a eerie horror story with vague flashes of originality .
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.
