Storyline

Patients at a run-down home for the blind suffer under the cruelty of its owner (Zerbe). Pretty Sheila (Polo) is a new "inmate" who becomes an unwilling pawn when the owner says he will lighten up on the others, if she agrees to have sex with him. One of the inmates is Benny, a kindly worker who saves Sheila and helps the rest lock up the evil owner. Written by Anonymous

"Revenge is Nuts" falls short of "Blind Alleys"
2 March 2011 | by scotttilmontSee all my reviews

This is a remake from the original "Blind Alleys" segment of the movie "Tales from the Crypt." Though the story line is similar, it lacks the nature of realism that the original does. There are sexual overtures that weren't needed or even present in the first, but it must be for the audiences of the 1990's. "Blind Alleys" was about a home for blind men only. The leading actress had clothes that suggested the 1990's, and the whole scenario would not have played out during that time. The entire layout of the facility was unrealistic; from the size of the place and the only exit being through Grunwald's office. And to have four residents in a home for the blind, when the original had many makes it seem like there weren't have enough funds for the casting of the remake.
