    Not the best slasher film, but the isolation of being stuck on this island did add some tension to the whole thing. Some of these characters are a little too obnoxious, that there needed to be better payoffs when they were finally dealt with. It's okay, just not the best.

    This movie sits exactly where it deserves, at a 0%. While some of it is well executed, the story meanders and has nothing to say or do. The (more or less) quality actors are squandered as the movie waits around for something to happen. It all 'builds' to what I feared most--an on the nose and (honestly lazy and offensive) "monster" to see kill things then die. The movie also is continuously distracted by a need to sexualize everything -- camera angles, character decisions...this movie is a real shame.

    This early 80's horror flick is anything but a gem. The biggest problem is that you don't know what's going on because you can't see absolutely anything through 80% of the movie. It is so grainy and dark during the night scenes (when all the action goes down), you are literally turning your head side to side to try to get a glimpse of anything on screen. The story could have been okay, but the visual presentation just makes it way too hard to follow.

    Now this is what Friday the 13th could have been. This has well drawn out characters, haunting atmosphere, and plenty of scares and suspense to boot. Though at times it's difficult to see what is going on, the story and suspense trumps these minor flaws. The killer which is only seen a silhouette is quite intimidating and his origins are quite disturbing even though most of it is revealed through dialogue. It is sad that they did not make a sequel to this since it has enough charm and energy needed for an entire series, a job well done.

    I might've liked this a bit more had there been more cannon fodder for the creature to kill, or had the 'friends' actually seemed to even like one another a little bit, but mostly I was left to wonder why they even bothered to spend time with one another and hope for another nude scene. Rental?

    A group of preppy Canadian teens borrow their father's yacht for a night of debauchery. They end up crashing on an isolated island which is known for its hermit of old lady and her many vicious guard dogs. After a few of the group disappear they discover the lady is gone and all her dogs dead. This is very much I'd imagine a Scooby Doo slasher to be like. Filmmed too very dark, none more black

    Canadian production about a group of shipwrecked teens on an island inhabited only by a large, mutated person who either sounds like he has emphysema or growls like a dog. Alright but could have been better.

    Slow but with that unique early 80's slasher atmos. Plus some nice split focus shots.
