THE GRUESOME TWOSOME REVIEWED
“The Gruesome Twosome” is a pretty standard horror movie. College girls start disappearing when approaching a nearby Wig Shop. The girls blame a local janitor, but he’s just a poor fool feeding his dog some soup bones. When old Mrs. Pringle and her slow son pick up on the impending danger, they turn hard on these ladies. After all, do you know a better way to get fresh hair for wigs?
The reveal that the ladies are getting scalped to death isn’t that killer. But, this was a return to horror for Lewis. The man had been working on kid cinema which I’d love to see Arrow release on Blu. The kills are still strong for a Lewis movie, but they lack any impact. While this movie kicked off the Wizard of Gore era at Mayflower for Lewis, this is such a training wheels picture. The film only runs 72 minutes, so make sure to immediately dive into the special features after finishing. The commentary is essential to understanding the film.
