Frightmare

(1974) **½

Tagline:Worse than your most shocking nightmare! (Uhh, I don't think so)

Jackie & Debbie's Mom & Dad are released after spending 15 years in an asylum. Mom had a nasty habit of killing people and eating their brains. Now cured, Jackie brings packages of fresh animal brains to Mom to keep her appetite sated.

But when people start to disappear all leads point back to Mom. Was she really ever cured?

Mom is weird and creepy and I would have disowned her, changed my name and moved far, far away. What the hell was Jackie thinking? Your Mom eats raw brains, it's time to move on. Debbie is a bratty little delinquent who needs to have her ass kicked and Dad is completely sackless, a total waste of air. Not such a bad film, it just wasn't a really good one either.

Damn you Catfreeek! I brought this one to a friend's house a couple of weeks ago and got through 3/4 of the movie before her DVD player crapped out. I started it over last night at my place and it crapped out in the same place! Turns out that the DVD was the problem! I'm enraged! AAAAARRRGGGGHHH!!!

What's with the new comment set up? It's throwing me off.

Anyway I really liked this movie thus far and will likely rate it higher depending on the resolution. I think the old hag makes a fantastic loon-job!

She is a good looney but somewhere into it I just got tired of them all.

She looks like a good loon from the pictures.
