Directed by Tom DeSimone
In this slasher favorite, THE EXORCIST's Linda Blair stars as one of four pledges required to spend the evening of their initiation inside the spooky Garth Manor– the site of a gruesome multiple murder years before. After the group bed down for the night, mischievous upperclassmen descend into the house, intending to scare them out of their wits...but something even more repulsive than a pack of drunken frat-boys beats them to it.
Four college pledges spend the night in a deserted old mansion, where they are stalked by the monstrous survivor of a family massacre years earlier.
Cast: Linda Blair, Vincent Van Patten, Peter Barton, Suki Goodwin, Jimmy Sturtevant
I'm a slasher junkie (particularly an 80s slasher junkie), but somehow this film ha completely escaped my knowledge and attention. A lot of movies made around this period of time pop up here on Shudder and I'm nearly always left disappointed. Well, this one blew away my expectations. Well acgred, they certainly convey their characters emotional states in a palpable way. Well paced. The only negative is the dates makeup effects which are not effective whatsoever on the killed. Other than that, love the dialogue and the British chick is massively sexy. An excellent film I will watch many more times.
Fun afternoon early 80s slasher
Why didn't they just try to dig under the fence?
Love this. Fun funhouse popcorn tosser. Blair acts like she'd rather be grocery shopping.
Great movie, don't read the next review. Guy put spoilers in it like a complete arse.
