"The scariest thing about TOXIE'S TOP TEN is the eerily similar comments that most of these screamfests have gotten from viewers. Universal disappointment, derision and disapproval is expressed by them in such unequivocal terms as: "avoid at all costs," "the worst movie of all time" and "pure crap." With such liabilities as cheezy costuming, crummy music, bad acting and improvised scripts, what else can the 'Z' grade gore film fan expect?
Let's see what we gots here-- Two films about crazed crossdressers, psychic psychos, cults, a rubber froggie suit, zombies, homicidal Reb soldier-ghosts and other "dead back to life" plots (for lack of a better word) and BLOOD-- lots of it, looking fakey as all get out. Some of the prime frumunda here dates back to the mid-70s-- yes, really AWFUL movies were made even back then. Caveat emptor on this cadaverous collection.
Want more of the same? Be sure to check out BLOOD SOAKED CINEMA: A NIGHT TO DISMEMBER. One way or another, these 10 movies will have you screaming.
