Wonder what you’re going to do over the next couple of days when too much familial togetherness starts to take its toll? Well, how about sneaking away for 90 minutes or so to watch the low budget experimental horror movie Oliver Twisted, created in Central Florida by director Dean Gates and screenwriter G. Patrick Charuhas, which we have embedded right here at no cost thanks to the magic of YouTube?
This is the official DVD (2000) version of Oliver Twisted, and in addition you’ll find three related extras on the film’s YouTube page, including a “Master Class on Low Budget Filmmaking”. Oliver Twisted stars Signe Kiesel, Brian Ahmes, Jason McMahan, Karen Black, and Erik Estrada.
The Happ family, Mary (Black) and her two children, Livvy, 18 (Kiesel), and Jeff, 12 (Ahmes), are reasonably happy. They live in a comfortable home just outside of town on a quiet lake. Mary has a good job that requires her to be away from home from time to time, but Livvy and Jeff are generally responsible. All in all the family leads a normal life — until “Cousin” Oliver (McMahan) joins the family. Institutionalized from birth, Oliver suffered an unfortunate accident that puts him into a coma, where he is likely to remain for the rest of his life. The Happs are his only family, and his care falls to them. Something about Oliver troubles Dr. Castanada (Estrada), who comes late to Oliver’s case, perhaps too late. He is right to be concerned. Soon after Oliver arrives “home”, a bedridden vegetable, bad things begin happening around the little family as an unspeakable horror begins ripping their pleasant lives to shreds and they find themselves awash in a sea of blood.
