RUBY REVIEWED

“Ruby” is quite a disposable Carrie rip-off. But, it’s a rip-off that tries to improve upon the film by involving gangsters and making the film into a period picture. Gangster ghosts inhabit mute girls and they got all “The New Blood” crazy on people. The film runs at a fast clip, so I recommend checking out the special features. The Sinister Image episodes give the director a chance to explain away the film in a vintage interview.

What matters most is the latest commentary track and video interview. This is a bizarre footnote in 70s horror, but it’s one that makes crazy choices and just throws it all onscreen. I’m loving that MVD is saving these old VCI titles. Genre film needs all the love and help it can get. If you haven’t had the please of seeing this movie, then pick it up this Halloween.
