APRIL MOVIE THON 2: Skinned Alive (1990)

April 23: Regional Horror — A regional horror movie. Here’s a list if you need an idea.

Director, writer and editor Jon Killough made this cheap — and I mean that with kindness — film about a family led by Crawdaddy (Mary Jackson, yes, Evelyn from Terror House) that makes leather goods from the skins of the people they murder. Her kids, Violet (Susan Rothacker) and Phink (Scott Spiegel) are just as crazy as she is. And man, Spiegel is swinging for the upper decks with his scene chewing. But that and the goofy humor made this fun for me.

This was produced by J.R. Bookwalter, whose Tempe Video released many a small town film years ago. I’ve read so many reviews online that outright disliked this movie to the point I wondered if it did something to their mother. I mean, you’ve seen worse. But you have also seen better.

You can watch this on Tubi.
