Zombies are the middle children of the otherworldly family. Vampires are the oldest brother who gets to have a room in the attic, all tripped out with a disco ball and shag carpet. Werewolves are the youngest, the babies, always getting pinched and told they're cute. With all that attention stolen away from the middle child zombie, no wonder she shuffles off grumbling, "Marsha, Marsha, Marsha."

Film Review: MAD MUTILATOR (aka OGROFF) (1983)

As bizarre early French horror goes, Mad Mutilator (1983) may be one of the most bizarre that I have ever seen.  Ogroff is a bestial and savage backwoods killer who pretty much kills every person he comes into contact with for no other reason other than they have come across his path.  Women, men, and children alike, they all are on equal footing when it comes to Ogroff.  There is no other plot to this film than that as there are no characters that the audience gets to know through the film.

The gore effects are sub-par as is pretty much everything on this low budget horror film.  For those of you with a curiosity for long forgotten foreign horror films than this film may appeal to you but for generally everyone else this is a completely unnecessary and useless film to even look for much less watch.

The film is written and directed by N.G. Mount, who went on to have a semi-successful career in the ‘90s with such low budget films as Operation Las Vegas (1990), Alien Platoon (1992), Trepanator (1992), and Dinosaur from the Deep (1993),  to name a few, before disappearing completely from the Brooklyn Cop (1998).
