Death Warmed Up (1984)
Its a cool story but it really doesn't make any sense. Things seem to happen for no reason and are never explained. We don't even ever find out why the mad scientist is creating these sub-human, psychos. Another thing that is really weird about this movie is that the kid who is seeking revenge brings three friends along with him on a vacation. His friends are unaware that they are going to be taking part in some bloody vengeance.
The movie offers up some exploding head action, more then one open brain surgery scenes complete with bone saws and other skull cracking devices, We get 80's achy-breaky skulls complete with that special effect that was used in all the 80's werewolf movies, where it looks like there is a balloon under the flesh. A sexy nurse is stabbed with scissors (complete with bloody splatter), two shotgun murders (complete with flying guts). Dirt bike chase scene that ends with a biker impaled on a pole (complete with gut spilling), repeated gut stabbing, a pervy hunchback, a tid bit of tit & a muscle man shower scene from the guy who played in that awful 90's Hercules television show.
Leave your brain at home or with your favorite psycho-surgeon and check out Death Warmed Up for a splattery good time from New Zealand.
