Jill Robinson returns to her once-peaceful hometown to discover everything in disarray.

But this is no tiptoe through the tulips: Someone is murdering everybody connected to Jill and her family. A late entry into the ’80s slasher sweepstakes, BLOOD HARVEST is an ultra-sleazy and absolutely mental horror oddity straight from the heart of the Midwest.

This stylish and atmospheric slasher from American master of horror Tobe Hooper centers on four teenagers who unwisely set up camp at a carnival funhouse for a night of cheap thrills.
