Nightmare In A Damaged Brain (1981)
Maniac and Prowler have long ago had they're very own quality release, Nightmare ran the bootleg circuit at horror conventions. I myself am yet to see a nice cleaned up print of this thing. I have seen an old vhs copy and bootleg copies from the vhs days which just further blur the insane bloodletting out. Either way Nightmare In A Damaged Brain is a fun watch and one can't help but get nostolgic while watching it. Why can't they make quick, nasty little gems like this anymore? It really is a thing of the past and it is to bad.
The truth is the movie is kind of slow going until our killer has his final showdown in the FL. house. This is when the gore really picks up and we have a total blood bath on our hands. Our killer strangles a young boy (Awesome!), Slits some throats (complete with gurgling gore), goes axe crazy (complete with decapitation), Next he buries the axe in a achy-breaky skull (complete with tons of splatter), we also have a claw hammer through a hand and a gun happy little boy (lots of gory bullet wounds). There is also a character who looks a lot like Tommy Chong and he even says "Mellow out" in a very much called for piece of dialogue. There is some typical babysitter neglect followed by sex and a bit of tit to keep the earlier slow parts moving.
Nightmare In A Damaged Brain is a must own for all slasher fanatics and splatter hounds alike! Its fucking gory! Fans of this movie are sure to like the Spanish slasher Pieces.
