The film has a bit of a convulted history. While made in 1983, it was shelved until 1987, when a severely cut version of the film (dubbed ''Nightmare at Shadow Woods'') showed up in a few theaters, while that same year the original uncut version of the film was released on VHS by Prism Entertainment. Some seventeen years later, ''Nightmare at Shadow Woods'' got its own home release, a DVD by Legacy Entertainment.

-> ''Identical twins with brutally different personalities!''

'''''Blood Rage''''' is a 1983 SlasherMovie, which is also known as both '''''Nightmare at Shadow Woods''''' and '''''Complex'''''.

In 1974, while at a {{drive-in theater}} with his mother Maddy, and his twin brother Todd, a young boy named Terry Simmons brutally murdered a fellow moviegoer, and framed Todd for it. Traumatized by witnessing what his brother had done, Todd fell into a catatonic state, and was placed in a mental institution, while Terry went on to live a normal life with their mother, even getting a girlfriend named Karen. Unfortunately for Terry, a decade after the murder, Todd starts to come out of his shell, and regains the memories of what really happened all those years ago; he subsequently manages to escape the asylum on Thanksgiving. This, coupled with Maddy's intention to marry her boyfriend Brad (who owns the sprawling apartment complex where they live) causes Terry to snap and go on a killing spree.
