LOVE MASSACRE (1981)


 I was led to believe that this movie was half a romantic drama and half a slasher flick. It's really mostly a love-story/artsy drama and then gets into the slasher territory only near the very end of it's run time. It does start out pretty crazy, a la THE DEVIL IN MISS JONES, with a suicidal sliced wrist. It's also a pretty good looking film that chronicles a descent into madness. I will also give this film extra credit for having the couple behind me at the theater walk out when the blood started to fly. I've only seen that reaction at this theater, which shows mainly artsy-fartsy stuff, once before and that was also an Asian movie, BUNMAN: THE UNTOLD STORY, but I wouldn't put this one in the same category as that violence-fest since only one kid gets slaughtered here as opposed to a whole family of children. A bit slow for my taste but it does pay off in the end and apparently it offends inner-city art-film lovers so that's always a plus!

Super dramatic opening!:
