DVDDrive-In Review

20th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

“Relentlessly morbid” is the best way to describe this gruesome tale of retribution from beyond the grave. Deemed to be too intense for civilized audiences, this film has either been censored or outright banned in 99% of the world.

The screen is drenched in despair by the constant, nagging anxiety of isolation as the encroaching elements envelope the characters in a cloud of ever impending horror and doom.

Rarely since The Texas Chainsaw Massacre has a film evoked such deep emotions in the viewer – an overwhelming sensation of dread that is not easily shaken off.

A product of the early 1980’s Horror/Slasher Movie craze Scalps succeeds in wild fashion as a gritty, in your face no budget gore fest that transcends the genre to become an unnerving exercise in terror.
