    It looks like this was released on VHS under two different titles, Home Sweet Home and Slasher In The House. Anyone know if there is a difference between the two versions?

    Just watched this and it has some of those fun 80's slasher elements, but between the lame guitar kid, an abundance of over the top screaming (dood, that chick in the end looping that exact same screeching scream like 6 times is one example - wtf) and the killer's annoying laugh it's tough to enjoy.

    This "terrible" slasher is such a guilty pleasure of mine. Soooo bad it's good. Besides, it's got Don Edmonds getting crushed beneath a car hood by a hulked out nutcase high on PCP. What's not to like?

    I think I bought this movie by mistake, I think I might have mixed it up with To All a Goodnight (also released by Media on VHS), because when I look at the reviews on IMDb (which is what I always did before buying videos on ebay) they are terrible, and there is no way on earth I would have bought it based on those reviews (the reviews of the Hess film are much more positive).

    Home Sweet Home is easily one of the worst films I've ever seen, hell, I've seen $2 DVD shot on DV crap that was better than Home Sweet Home! It wasn't even "bad movie" enjoyable, it was just tedious and dull. If you gave me the option of watching Unhinged for 36 hours straight or seeing Home Sweet Home again, I would choose the former. Unhinged isn't much better, but it's a masterpiece in comparison!

    Harsh reviews! It's not great, but it's not that bad.

    Hey now. I kinda like Home Sweet Home, but I agree that it's pretty dull.

    But aside from awful acting, Unhinged is actually a very unnerving slasher film that has such a dark streak that it ranks up with the likes of Silent Madness, Dorm That Dripped Blood and Girls Nite Out imo.

    Home Sweet Home may not be all that good, but the 'roid rage killer really stands out for me in a campy way. Sort of like Ricky in Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2. It's a welcome change from the flurry of heavy-breather slashers that makeup most of the genre. They need to make a Dissidia type game with only slasher movie villains.

    Really? My problem is that if a movie has issues straight up, then the rest of the movie is a wash. In Unhinged's case it was the amateurish way the opening sequences were filmed. The overhead tracking shots of the car snaking through the forest (IIRC) are terminally tedious!! No in car stuff, no backseat passenger POV, no front seat passenger POV, no front on shots, just endless, overhead tracking shots. Now true, my memory mightn't serve me that well on this film, but that's what I remember, and believe it or not, I am no film student!!! So when that was my start, I might as well stop the tape right there. I still have it on tape though so there's no reason to not revisit it some time. Unfortunately I still have Home Sweet Home, I don't think it will ever be that lucky!

    Holy crap, I haven't posted here in nearly 8 years and what a surprise to find a thread I started right here at the top. Can't even remember why I stopped posting.

    This movie still stinks :D

    Is it really supposed to be remastered properly though? :eek2:

    I become suspect when German releases say that. Half the time they're just digitally tinkered with, etc..

    This is the only thing I really found: http://www.schnittberichte.com/news.php?ID=8407

    The Google translation of it doesn't make a hell of a lot of sense though. Can you translate it Hellbilly? :evil:

    Well, it says that Home Sweet Home was on the German Index (reason: glorifying violence) for 25 years and taken off the Index in 2011 (this happens automatically after a certain amount of time), and authorities saw no reason to put Home Sweet Home back on the Index.
    The German VHS release was always uncut (R-Rated) and its the same version Maritim Pictures is releasing to DVD, with the same old German rating (they didn't re-submit Home Sweet Home for a possible re-rating for this release because that costs extra).
    No idea how "good" Maritim Pictures are as I don't own any of their releases.
