What makes the movie work is that the slasher genre hadn't been set in stone yet, and some choices that director Sean S. Cunningham makes in the film that work against type.

Unsophisticated by today's standards perhaps, but still contains plenty to satisfy the dedicated gore-hound.

For all its shoddiness, the film manages, just barely, to achieve its ignoble goals -- it delivers what it promises.
