Slipping Into Darkness (1978)

Jupiter Pictures
Directed by Richard Cassidy
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
(VHS, Regal Video)

A young woman leaves her boyfriend to seek a life of independence in the big city. She ends up in a boarding house run by a senile old woman and her odd son. She is a diabetic and one day has a seizure in her bathtub and dies. The son, who spies on her through a grate, tries to save her but is too late. He takes her body into his bedroom and keeps it in his bed. Later he dresses it up as his bride. Her friends come looking for her and he commits murder to keep it covered up. Disturbing independent feature well-played by Laszlo Papas as the quiet boy with a troubled past, but hurt by low budget and futile attempts at comic relief. Re-titled "Bloodshed" for the Regal Video release.
