Canada: Paul Lynch, 1982

IMDB reference

Even watching this on a fuzzy VHS copy the opening scene was pretty damn grim. Luckily the dumb teens soon arrive featuring a cast/plot which smacks of a fun 'Scooby-Doo' vibe & the film has some suitably cheesy 80s paraphernalia & fashions.

However, ultimately it's all a bit meh. The incredibly dark & rough VHS image transfer can't of helped matters. The audio in particular is very poor on the version I watched. Even so despite the shortcomings of the audio/visual presentation there's no denying the fun to be had with the wooden acting!

The Count's Verdict: In desperate need of a DVD release to aid shoddy audio-visual presentation but no matter how good it looked or sounded this is a pretty silly and forgettable slasher.
