This is a film I saw pictures of in Fangoria back in the day and decided it was going to be too gory to watch. Until now.
Two things kept happening throughout this film. I kept getting Ted and Sam Raimi confused — in fact, I was wondering when Sam Raimi was going to show up, thinking Ted was doing a weird “clean then dirty” schtick.
The other thing was the “Raimi” touches. The cool camera tricks and such. I think because I’m used to seeing them in a Raimi-directed film, they stood out here (Scott Spiegel directed this one).
A stock slasher that takes waaay too long to get to the killing.
