I can’t believe I had never heard of this film until now - thank you Shudder!! This was a low budget, (greater-Detroit area) straight to video production that (somehow) features the great John Saxon (Enter the Dragon, tons of giallo films, etc.). It’s not for everyone - you have to appreciate 80’s/early 90’s low budget genre horror and be able to overlook some of the limitations it exerts on the material. But for lovers of “low brow” or “trash” horror from the days of the VHS boom, this is definitely worth a watch and is something of a diamond in the rough. With that said, the story often makes no sense, the writing is all over the place, the acting is completely uneven (with some actors clearly completely inexperienced, while others like Saxon are quite capable). The gang of mutants that Saxon’s character brings to the college are one of the highlights (the little person, creepy nun, and crazy woman with the knife being highlights). Basically if you can set aside the uneven acting and low budget, and are a fan of 80’s direct to video regional horror, this is definitely worth watching.

I don't know what everyone is on about, this movie is perfection. 4 stars cuz it's not actually perfection lolz, it's so fun. Design is flawed and this needs to be a 10/10 classic
