    This film is very slow and contains nothing loveable, except a couple small ideas. This film also contains a scene that will never be seen on the screen ever again. Grade: D-

    It barley passed time, this movie was almost nearly terrible. One of the worst horror movies ever made, probably the worst acting ever in a movie. The only thing that saves it is last 30 Mins which isnt all that bad

    I have seen my share of dull, generic slasher films, but this takes mediocrity to a whole new level. I get that writer/director Jimmy Huston was trying to focus more on the character of the victims than was typical, but his characters are uninteresting and none of the cast can act. So essentially you get a slasher film that spends almost no time focusing on the killer, and when the killer does appear, he's just "guy in a green jacket" who's motive is never really broached. He's boring dude with a knife who teleports from place to place as needed to stab unpleasant non-actors. I hate this film.

    It's decent, but pretty forgettable. It's strange to see a slasher film spend soo much time developing a bunch of knife fodder. Especially when they're mostly really annoying. And having such a dull killer doesn't help either. Strictly for slasher enthusiasts.

    A killer stalks a high school. And thats the plot. This is a cookie cutter slasher film. The only interesting thing about this movie is it's historical value as an atypical sub-genre piece. You get to see the sheer rubbish that was made to generate ticket sales and box office. Movies with no artistic merit or intelligence such as this were shot quickly in the wake of John Carpenter's Halloween.  You could watch this to try and spot whats been stolen from other films. But don't watch for it's entertainment value as there is none. Theres also a scene where a masked gang mows down fellow students that feels massively inappropriate and just plain tasteless. In the words of Simon Cowell this is 'distinctly average'. If you have masochistic tendencies and feel a need to watch this then please watch the excellent Good Bad Flicks video on YouTube which goes into the chaotic and shambolic production of this folly. Avoid.

    Some quasi homo-erotic moments among fraternity bros and the initiation process; The murders are robotic and janky. The killers motives are never revealed, and his ability to catch an arrow fired at him out of mid-air, only to later meet his demise via rotted wood makes for some ridiculous moments. Overall, the effects are quite awful, taking away from any potency the kills may have had.

    "Presented as a rip off, but not the worst". With all the flaws and the stupidity in this film, made it enjoyable. The unspeakably terrible dialog that this film delivers makes the film look like a comedy. But i do have to give credit for its worthy and suspenful music, and its lack of gore keeps the movie from looking fake. Its not anywhere close to John carpenter's halloween, but it makes for a great movie that you can enjoy and make fun of.

    A movie that stands as a horrifically boring attempt to add 'new' flavor to the slasher genre, never fully committing and never providing interesting characters, though provides some of the fun kills the slasher genre has always won at.
