I hoped I was going to like this a lot more, especially with how much I’ve enjoyed early ’80s films that aren’t really great films. This was influential to the Friday the 13th films specifically and slasher films in general. But I thought the influence would be more… exact.
Like the opening credits, with each title coming up in different corners — just like the Friday the 13th films. And the double impalement during sex — just like Friday the 13th Part 2, although censored to hell in the latter.
But that was about it. At least that I caught.
While the dubbing was decent, the acting wasn’t. And the story seemed too convoluted. Or maybe that was me. I think I’ll watch this again at some point. Just wanted it to be… classic.
