Slow but good
12 May 2005 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

well now this was not bad but not good... it started off with this girl living in this mysterious house and some really bad death scenes and a killer with a red mask. i remember being about 7 or 8 and seeing a few of the scenes really late on TV one night.. but it was all kind of hard to recall. how ever the thing that saves this little film is the over all creepy way it unfolds its self . it kind of feels like a they were rushed to finish it. anyways ...its kind of hard to get a hold of a copy of it so if you see it maybe it will be worth $$$ to the right horror film buff worth a rent but maybe not worth buying .. only for die hard horror film fans of the 70's
