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 got a kick out of this movie. It brought back memories of the 80’s. It was cheesy but in a fun way. A great movie for anyone who feels nostalgic for the campy 80’s horror movies!
FUN ! Grade A American cheese, love the cast, solid narrative,FX,production values bely a bigger budget. Saw this twice in ‘83, the chase sequences were definite highlights. Recommended I.J.S.
As a kid born in the 70's, this scared the living shit out of me when I first saw it...all sorts of goodies: Linda Blair during her cocaine & Rick James period, the foreign girl with the good drugs, Vincent Van Patten saying "radical" every 10 minutes (10 times total, I counted) and poor Peter Barton just can't catch a break in his movies (Friday the 13th Final Chapter). It's a good mix of slasher, haunted house, creature feature and the entire cast is super hot! If you hated this movie you were probably born post 1990.
