The Fiesta 13 1980’s Horror Movie Challenge #15: Dead Kids (1981) (Arrow)
62 1980’s Horror Movies in 62 Days. (Probably Not)
What’s making our heros into murderous psychopaths?
With Australia subbing for the U.S., this one falls squarely into The “All The Kids Have Turned Bad” genre of horror movies. See Black Roses.
Top-notch acting from the whole cast including Oscar Winner Louise Fletcher and a slightly shaggy dog storytelling style spackles over the slow beginning. The latter half, to us, has a Shock Treatment (1981) feeling. Some of the ending is predictable, but we were already invested at that point and there were some nice twists mid-movie.
