Silent Rage

Silent Rage seems as if it were made with a demographics sampler entitled '10 Sleazy Ways to Cash in on the Exploitation Market'. The result is a combination horror-kung fu-oater-woman in peril-mad scientist film with more unintentional laughs than possible in the space of 100 minutes.

Silent Rage seems as if it were made with a demographics sampler entitled ’10 Sleazy Ways to Cash in on the Exploitation Market’. The result is a combination horror-kung fu-oater-woman in peril-mad scientist film with more unintentional laughs than possible in the space of 100 minutes.

The scenario goes something like this – a sweaty, crazy young man chops a woman and another man to death. Our hero of the day, Chuck Norris (the sheriff), catches him but the guy is shot by some over-anxious law enforcers.

The run-of-the-mill crime story? Of course not. One of the hospital surgeons happens to be a mad scientist who has been working on a formula to speed up the human healing process. All he needs is a human guinea pig. Now we have a murderer who is not only crazy but indestructible.
