Pretty solid movie. Glad that the homophobic pos got blown away at the end.
If you're partial to campy female antagonists and rough-around-the-edges shocks, please watch this film. The story is bonkers and touches on themes of abuse and homophobia in a coarse and unrefined manner. F-bombs are dropped casually and at times I was concerned that this was a film on the wrong side of history. Fear not. The characters are treated with a surprising level of respect and the end result is a fun and highly satisfying horror.
That cop was a real son-of-b****! Though dry for the most part, it did gain momentum as it went on. Just to think this was actually based on a true story.
Absolutely Gem, great 80s horror .. great characters and great plot
I f*ckin loved this flick. I love the nostalgic vibes it gives off (a mix between Carrie/Jason/Sleepaway Camp). Definitely solid. And it just kept getting crazier. The lead actress has to be bat sh*t crazy IRL bc she murdered this role (pun intended). 4/5 skulls
