Directed by Joe Giannone
In this cult slasher classic, a maniacal killer named Madman Marz stalks a summer camp after a boy who doesn’t believe the urban legend screams his name into the woods. Now the psycho who brutally murdered his family and escaped into the woods is back, turning the campers’ summer vacation into their last days on Earth. Joe Giannone’s first and only cinematic endeavor became a huge hit on VHS, endearing it to a generation of ‘80s slasher fans. Watch it back to back with CROPSEY - the Shudder doc about the inspiration for Madman Marz - for maximum chills.

Best outro song ever
The production and direction seemed a bit poor. With the final scenes with the blonde in the house with Madman it felt off in many ways. Also there were multiple spots in the film that had damage or otherwise that resulted in various lines showing on screen at different points. For it's time, I could see this being a decently scary film. It just hadn't stood the test of time.
All I can really say is... interesting.
The reason most of us have SHUDDER is to watch the old 80s slasher flicks lol.. however that doesn’t mean all of them were great.. they made this movie and. Said “ok imagine your Jason... now go kill people”.. some movies just didn’t work. I’d rather watch MANIAC a thousand before this.
I rather watch Friday The 13th 50,000 times
