Home Sweet Home (1981)★★★☆☆


Wow, this movie. I was considering rating it at only two out of five, but I gave it an extra star because it’s just so bad. You know, in that can’t look away from it kind of way.

The film revolves around a serial killer who has escaped from an insane asylum. And is on PCP. The whole opening sequence is hilarious and weird. And it just gets sillier and sillier.

I spent the first half hour just listening to the ridiculous dialogue, which included such gems as “Jesus you’re horny” and “rock and roll foreva!” The second one was shouted by a boy named Mistake whose makeup led me to believe he’s either a KISS fan or a mime. The fact that he spoke (and that he said what he did) leads me to believe it’s the former.

Vinessa Shaw is Angel and too young to be recognizable but still a memorable part of the movie.

I don’t even know what else to say. Oh, it takes place on Thanksgiving, so, y’know. Watch it next year for laughs. Or, probably better yet, don’t.
