After hearing about the gore in Blood Rage I tracked it down on DVD under the title "Nightmare at Shadow Woods", and I'm a little underwhelmed. It started off looking promising with the kid attacking the couple at the drive-in. Then as usual, time is fast forwarded. The kid responsible for the drive-in deaths has framed his brother who is now locked away in a mental hospital. He escapes, whilst his brother kills people and blames it on him.

There were some decent gore scenes early on, though for some reason most of the rest were cut out. This is a shame because the gore is what makes a film like this. On its own, it was kind of dull and uneventful, but with the gore in it would have been easier to sit through. If anyone knows where to find an uncut copy please do let me know, I wouldn't mind seeing it in the way god intended.

Recommended to 80's slasher fans if you can find the uncut version.
