Response to Peary’s Review:
As Peary notes, this “weird little sleeper” by independent filmmaker Larry Yust — “extremely well acted by the veteran cast” — effectively blends “horror, comedy, and social drama” while showing “true respect for the resourcefulness of the elderly.” Peary laments the brutal nature of the murders, though he concedes that most victims are “heartless, arrogant people”. The final scene of the movie is surprisingly satisfying.
- A rare pre-Cocoon (1985) film with spunky elderly people as the leads
No, but this unusual film is worth seeking out.
