FRIDAY THE 13TH:THE ORPHAN
dvd

(aka The Orphan)

(1979)

DIRECTOR: John Ballard

STARS: Mark Owens, Peggy Feury, Stanley Church, Afolabi Ajayi, Joanna Miles

SYNOPSIS: Here's a good sleeper that sometimes gets dumped on by slasher fans. First off, it's not a slasher film. Despite the artwork and title (used just before 1980's Friday the 13th). It's a solid little psychological horror with some surreal moments. A young boy in the 1920's becomes an orphan and goes to live with his strict Aunt. Having no outlet for his grief and pre-teen energy he begins hallucinating, having nightmares, talking to a stuffed gorilla, spying on the housemaid having sex and imagining all sorts of weird things (see clips below). One infamous scene shows gruesome tongue removal on a live squirming patient. Fans of traumatic childhood films such as The Other and will enjoy this one.
