Gather Around the Campfire to Die!


A janitor at a summer camp is accidently burned severely from a prank. Years later, he is released from an institute, and returns to the camp with a pair of hedge clippers to take revenge on the campers

Another fun slasher with awesome effects by Tom Savini. Directed by Tony Maylam and released in 1981 with a decent cast including Jason Alexander, and Lou David as Cropsy!

You can't go wrong with this one. I like it way more than Friday the 13th.

You know i never did like the tag placed on this and Sleep Away Camp as Friday The 13th Rip Offs. The Burning is a awesome film and deserves more credit than it gets and at least they left it alone and did not make it into a franchise with non stop sequals. Cropsy was great and the scene where the hooker sees him for the first time after the hospital was great

Right now, he's out there.
Watching, waiting.
Don't look...he'll see you.
Don't move...he'll hear you.
Don't breathe...you're dead!!!



I love this flick...one of the better slasher flicks out there...Some great Savini effects as always...Especially the raft scene...

I only have the Dragon German release...I never picked up the MGM release...but yes, it has been out for over a year now...

Can't believe I passed this one up.

Cropsy OWNS!!!!! It's funny seeing Jason Alexander in this, well....the whole cast of characters seemed very likable.

Nothing like a good Summer Camp Maniac type of film!!!!!

It was actually in the works years before the Friday the 13th films. Jason was intended to be a rip off of the old Cropsy Maniac campfire story.

Yeah, the Cropsy story has been around, but F13th was a rip of Halloween...Nothing more, nothing less...It was a cash in...and The Burning came after, which was another cash in of those...

And if you want to go deeper, F13th was more a rip off of the Italian giallo flicks...Mario Bava's Bay of Blood in particular...
