Editorial Reviews

In this gory horror comedy classic from Troma Team Video, two kindly little old ladies turn into flesh-eating, denture-gnashing demons when they open a mysterious package! When the sweet seniors invite their family to a birthday party, one nephew who is not invited, a devil-worshipper whose activities have resulted in his being removed from the sisters' inheritance, decides to take his revenge! He sends a party gift that turns the scene into a frolic of the macabre: the aunts turn cannibal and eat up all their guests! Rabid Grannies will make you scream and laugh at the same time, and this DVD comes fully loaded with unreleased scenes, special effects outtakes and demos by James Desert, a director’s commentary, and a special episode of Troma’s Edge TV!

Customer Reviews

The gore is moderate, but the implied effects are well-done.
Spencer Wendleton
This one is quite nasty - the granny rips open his leg, eats the skin and then slowwwly pulls the lower part of the leg off at the joint in close up.
A. Griffiths
I'd say expect the unexpected but you know its Troma so thats obvious!

What can you expect from a film titled "Rabid Grannies"? You can expect a lot of horror and mayhem, aswell as nudity and an insanely twisted bizzare plot. When I watched this film, I pretty much new what I was going to see, and my expectations matched the results. So if you like stupid and utterly rediculous horror films than this is your film. For what this film stands for, I gave it a semi good review.

Two kind elderly ladies are having a birthday party with their family invited, unfortunately their black sheep nephew has sent them an evil gift that has literally transform both into ravenous, nutty and blood-crazed demons that begin to literally tear apart some of the family members one by one until some surviving family members must ward them off and find a way to stop this evil.

Strange and mildly bloody Belgian-French-Dutch horror comedy romp that was distributed here in the U.S. by Troma Pictures. It's kind of slow at times but does have some black humor and some gore even though it only has a few of them for the rest have been heavily cut out to avoid an "X" rating here in America, the film is in the tradition of Peter Jackson's pre-Hollywood days but isn't really the greatest of Troma flicks for that honor goes to "The Toxic Avenger" but it's still a enjoyable flick.

The DVD here has good picture and sound quality with some fine extras like audio commentary by director Emmanuel Kervyn, trailer with trailers to other Troma movies, Troma Intelligence Test, tour of the Troma building, outtakes, deleted gore scenes, radioation march, Troma's EdgeTV clips, a look at "Terror Firmer", photo gallery, an interview with one of the original rabid grannies, and more.

Also recommended: "Evil Dead II", "Hostel", " Re-Animator", "Men Behind The Sun", "Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky", "Dead Alive ( a.k.a. Braindead)", "Nightmare on Elm Street series", "Hellraiser", "Hellbound Hellraiser II", "Demons", "Suspiria", " The Toxic Avenger", "City of the Living Dead ( a.k.a.

Format: DVD
Rabid Grannies is a very bizarre movie - apparently of Belgian origin but "set" in England and dubbed into English post production, it tells the story of two elderly spinsters (who are referred to as aunties throughout the movie, but as the film's title calls them grannies, let's stick with that) who invite all their money-grabbing relatives over for a birthday party, but things descend into madness when a mystery birthday gift turns the two "grannies" into bloodthirsty demons!

So lets talk about the film first of all. First and foremost, the script and dialogue make this film a comedy, part unwittingly and part by design. When the head cook sees a demonic granny burst through a door and says "Oh no - the lobster must have been off!" (or something similar), then you know this film was made tongue in cheek. But aside from that, the dubbing of ALL the dialogue is completely off kilter, reportedly because the voice actors couldn't find a way to speak normally while trying to match the insane mouthings of the cast on film, but still, the results could have been better than this! No matter, we all like a laugh.

The story itself is little more than a prolonged massacre, as once the grannies transform, all that happens for the remainder of the plot is that all the other characters try and escape, and of course a lot of them die in gruesome ways. The action is all set inside an ornate country house, which at least looks authentic, even if the characters do not.

Now onto the DVD version and the cuts. I'm going to compare the cut and uncut scenes here - so this means the next paragraphs contains spoilers.

The Troma version, it has to be said, is fit for nothing but the trash. With almost all the gore and violence cut out, it's impossible to enjoy the film.

Not as silly as the title suggests, but still silly. I loved this tender (yeah right) story of two aging sisters who receive a special gift on their birthday from their devil worshiping nephew, and all heck breaks loose. Lots of blood and gore. Badly dubbed movie from Belgium. More funny than scary. Interesting musical score. I could watch it again and again.

Okay, the first half hour is boring..snooze, snooze, snooze. You see a set of ta-ta's, but still boring.
One of the Grannies opens a box, a gift from who?...who knows, never find out. They become rabid once it is opened and they become plastic creatures that foam green goo--awesome, thank you.
A Night of the Living Deadish appeal, the characters lock themselves in rooms throughout the mansion while the Grannies lurk throughout the hallways.
The demented nature of this film made me give this four stars despite the quick ending. The gore is moderate, but the implied effects are well-done. Strings of meat, limbs going down stairs--that kind of stuff.
This is laughable, but at a descent price, worth it.

Ok, well the first 30 minutes were funny just because all the characters introduced are stupid/funny in their own ways. The middle part of the movie after the grandmas transform got a little boring for me actually it seemed like there were some holes in the plot, you aren't really sure what happens when people start dying, and people don't die frequently enough or there is not enough gore-humor, or swearing/odd moments what have you, to keep you entertained, but it's ok. I'd say enough "troma" stuff happens to keep it going, it ends alright as well but nothing spectacular, with a pretty predictable ending. Now, what made this movie so worth the whole 5 dollars I spent on it, were the special features. Specifically, the gore scenes that were cut from the movie (which I have no idea why). Basically they play all the death scenes how they were originally shot, and pretty much all of them were extended and a "buttload" more gory, and should have just downright stayed in the movie, the song played along with them only made it funnier. After watching the movie by itself I could bear to watch it again with friends for some laughs, but the excluded scenes were where I found what I expected to be in the movie from the beginning, and are what will keep me playing it from time to time.
