Horror, directed by David Nelson, United States, 1982.
"Death Screams" opens with the scene of a brutal murder of a young couple who are having sexual intercourse by a river. A few days later, a group of college students, including Bob and Kathy, return to their small hometown for the summer vacation. They decide to attend the traveling carnival that is in town for its final night. The kids soon realize they are being followed by a killer. One by one, they are killed, each in a more gruesome way than the last. Bob and Kathy must race against time to find the killer and stop him before they themselves become victims.
Death Screams is a B movie full of imperfections and naivety. However, the low-budget appeal and over-the-top gore effects make it a cult classic for fans of '80s slasher films. The film is known for its violent, splatter-style death scenes. Death Screams was a box office flop upon its release but has gained a cult following in subsequent years on home video. It's a film typical of a certain American teen movie culture, so bizarre that it's worth seeing.
