Not a bad little Slasher here...directed by Joesph Zito (F13th P4)

A masked killer, wearing World War II U.S. Army fatigues, stalks a small New Jersey town bent on reliving a 35-year-old double murder by focusing on a group of college kids holding an annual Spring Dance.

Not great but it gets the job done. It is fairly predictable.

The one awesome thing about this film are Savini's effects...they are pretty damn brutal...

I agree it is quite predictable and at times very cliche, but the killings are pretty brutal & it is a darn right mean slasher!! one of the more intense killers for sure! reaper

The pitchfork in the shower scene is excellent...The detail with the fork dragging down the wall...

And the throat slit scene in the pools was cool as well...There was one of those brilliant mistakes that happened in which the gag sort of failed, but it was redeemed when the air bubbles showed...

Don't forget the knife through the head and out the chin area...Savini himself said that he thinks this was his best work

I was a little disappointed in this, mainly because when I watched it, I went into it expecting a higher body count. Killer effects, though.
