Twisted Nightmare (1987) - Blu-ray Review

Twisted Nightmare (1987) - Blu-ray ReviewThis is the type of independent horror film where few got paid.  It's fun and tedious and is worth remembering solely for the kill scenes and the fresh-looking gore effects.  You see, that's what happens when a film gets made and then re-made again.  It barely makes sense, but does ...
