Blood Tracks (1985)
Directed by Mats Helge
Starring Jeff Harding and Michael Fitzpatrick
My Letterboxd Review:
A Swedish Hills Have Eyes in the snow. Lots of camp appeal here, with the main characters being a hair metal band and their groupies shooting a music video out on a mountain. These rockers can't catch a break because not only does their music sound like Lizzy Borden, but they get hit by an avalanche and attacked by a murderous deformed family living in an abandoned factory. Sounds like Sweden in the 80's. This is surprisingly gory and nasty at times, with director Mats Helge, a Swedish exploitation legend, delivering a fun, bloody little slasher that's never boring. I had a good time with it.
