The Bride (1973)
Review by Bradley Frohloff

7 / 10
This movie shares a bevy of different titles, many of which do not even make all that much sense. I've mostly known this movie as "The Last House on Massacre Street" and it really makes no sense in relation to the movie. In the end, I decided to list this movie as "The Bride" mainly because it has the best looking poster and the name at least seems relevant enough to the story.

The story is nothing spectacular but it works. The bride played by Robin Strasser is actually quite cute, despite being a spoilt daddy's girl with a lot of money and to be honest, I had know idea why this guy would even want to cheat on his wife as I felt she was the better looking of the two. And I understand the motivation even less with it happening on the day of the wedding since he didn't even spend any amount of time building up to a point where the relationship had gotten stale and driven to do something like this. However, this has no actual bearing on my rating of the movie, I just thought it was something that may have made more sense.

It's a pretty short flick which runs somewhere around the 75 minute range. And, that's not necessarily a bad thing. I can appreciate when a movie doesn't drag too much for the sole purpose of hitting a particular mark for its length. Surprisingly enough, it only has a PG rating despite having some moderately horrific scenes. And while there isn't a whole lot of actual violence in the film, there are a few different scenes involving blood and an axe kill which I would have thought would surely push its rating up.

There is some good torment and nightmarish sequences throughout and it did have me guessing exactly how this one would end. And while there are aspects of the conclusion which aren't completely surprising, I was rather satisfied with how it wrapped up. I enjoyed this movie. I'll definitely be watching it again.
