    Bad Ronald
    "Bad" Ronald (Scott Jacoby) has been in hiding in a secret room ever since going off the deep end and killing a teenaged girl who'd made fun of him. Ronald's mother (Kim Hunter) helps her son to remain hidden, even when the house in which he is sequestered is rented by a family. As luck would have it, three of the family members are nubile young girls--perfect targets for the lonely, and looney, Ronald. In the original John Holbrook Vance novel on which this TV-movie is based, Ronald abducts, repeatedly rapes and ultimately kills two women. The video version of Bad Ronald is heavily laundered, but no less terrifying. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      I remember watching this movie as a kid in the 70s and being creeped out but fascinated. Ordered the DVD and I must say the movie doesn't hold up as well after 40+ years. Way too many loopholes, illogical sequences, etc. In other words its a lot more cheesy than I remember. Still, I enjoyed it and would love to see a good remake of this movie. Be warned this is a grainy VHS transfer to DVD so the quality isn't very good, there are no commentaries, or even settings. Just plug and play! Despite the flaws, I love this movie!
