Pretty killer. I'll probably watch it again.
This movie was a well-made surprise. The story is different and put together in an interesting way. The characters are likable and there are several genuine moments of tension. It has some 80's cheese, but that has it's own charm. An early slasher with a difference.
great 80's horror. terrible but oh so good..
This is an interesting film in that it feels like it was directed by Spielberg.
Not bad. Not your typical Slasher film from the 80s - this one definitely felt more intelligent and the production is more competent than usual. After watching dozens upon dozens of Slasher films from the 1980s this title somehow eluded me.
