Product Description

Crawldaddy and her kids have been travelling cross-country selling fine leather apparel in their van. Unfortunately they break down right in the middle of killin' this rich businessman. Tom and his wife decide to put them up for the weekend. However, their neighbor Paul, a disturbed ex-cop, discovers that the clan has been killing people and skinning them alive! It's the most realistic "crazy backwoods family" movie since THE HILLS HAVE EYES and THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE. It's fun for the whole family...the Manson family, that is!!

Review

First-rate restoration package...the remastering is very sharp, with fine colors and a pro Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround soundtrack. -- Michael Gingold, FANGORIA.com

Voted one of the Top 10 DVDs of 2002! -- Michael Gingold, FANGORIA.com, January, 2003

Customer Reviews

My problem with this film is that it is just too long and directionless.
Blahblahblah
There is an ex-cop living next door, but his perpetual state of complete inebriation is a definite handicap in terms of his discovering and trying to stop the killers.
Daniel Jolley
This has to be one of the worst movies I have ever had the displeasure of seeing.

Format: DVD
Skinned Alive is a gory movie; that's all it tries to be, and it is succeeds in that endeavor. Although it wasn't quite as shocking as I expected and hoped it would be, it's still much more blood and guts than your normal, non-horror addict would want to see. I wish I could say that the title accurately reflects what happens in this movie, but I cannot-on occasion, people are killed before actually being skinned. What we have here is a truly dysfunctional family traveling the country pending their wares-they are tanners, you see, but their product is unique in the trade. Cows aren't good enough for them; they will settle for nothing less than human skin; naturally, that involves some poor unfortunate victims having to donate their skins unwillingly, but every entrepreneurial endeavor has its problems. The head of the family is "Crawldaddy," a crippled, foul-mouthed, one-eyed, twisted woman who continually berates and beats up on her two adult children and often insists on being called Daddy. Then there is her son Phink, who can actually pass for halfway normal at times, but is prone to frequent fits of annoying laughter and blunt instrument-swinging. The young lass completing the insane trio is Violet, chief skinner of the group and a woman who really enjoys her work. There's also a little incestuous thing going on between brother and sister, as if they aren't dark and twisted enough already. After killing a hitchhiker and an overweight stranded motorist, the family faces a major setback, namely the failure of their van to start. By necessity only, they come to town to get the van fixed, and the exceedingly naïve mechanic Tom puts them up in his own house for the night. The family quickly gets back to work, going on something of a major killing spree.Read more ›

I wasn't sure what to expect with this movie. Most reviews are negative and just by looking at the box you can see that it isn't quite Oscar material, but I'm glad I took a chance on the movie. It reminds me of the Little Shop of Horrors remake. Yes, it's gory, but it is also hilarious, intentionally so in places. An odd combination of slapstick humor covered in blood and guts, this film is worth a look if that's your taste, but I would recommend previewing it yourself before deciding on whether or not to buy it outright. This is the type of movie you either love or hate with no middle ground in-between.

But if you're trying to picture what the film is like mentally take Night of the Living Dead, Texas Chainsaw Masscher (which this movie copies A LOT) and Hairspray (the movie) and blend them until you have a combination. That's scarily accurate of this movie's style.

I liked it, but I love low budget horror.

This isn't for fans of B movies, it doesn't rate nearly that high. It's maybe a D movie, or even an E movie. And it's greatest accomplishment may be to prove that you can shoot 78 minutes of film on a budget of maybe $8, tops. But you know what, it's fun, the gore is silly, the dialogue unspeakable (literally and figuratively), the production values little-to-none ..... but it eventually offered lots of laughs, some intentional, some not, and I had fun watching it. So you know what? I'm throwing four stars at it. Bite me. And Mary Jackson can come to my house for dinner any time. Hubba hubba, wotta babe.

Rather amateurish, really. Didn't really match up to the description all that well, either. I just really wasn't that impressed.
