This Pete Walker entry gives us a deranged mother who is harbored by her husband and daughter in a small English cottage after being released from the mental institute for a series a murders. She begins cracking once more, and the family must take drastic actions when bodies start turning up in the hay.. The film has a pretty slow build, but the pacing is maintained through the interesting characters and competent acting. Though each of the other actors put in good performances, Walker veteran Sheila Keith steals the show as the cannibalistic mother with a taste for the locals. Much of the strength of the film also lies in the suspenseful build up to the implied violence that happens off-screen, though there is still a good amount of gore intact in the aftermath of the killings. The entire plot leads the audience in a very specific direction, but the finale throws out a perfectly planned twist as a finishing touch on an all-around smart and fun slasher. Frightmare makes for a very good watch, and certainly ranks among Pete Walkers greatest achievements.
