Slasher in the House (1981)

aka Home Sweet Home [not the Mike Leigh-directed film]

How bad is it? It's cheap, slow, dumb and dull.
Should you see it? Maybe as a double bill with Thankskilling.

There are dozens of Christmas slasher movies, but this is one of the rare ones for Thanksgiving. A bodybuilder (Jake "Bodies by Jake" Steinfeld of infomercial notoriety) escapes from an insane asylum on Thanksgiving and finds victims at an isolated ranch. There's very poor gore, some bloodless mayhem, a hypodermic needle in a tongue and a lot of maniacal laughter.
