A little slow but well-done and interesting
6 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A sadistic killer strikes a small town using scissors to kill his victims (all women). A repressed farm girl named Ingrid (May Britt) lives all alone and thinks she may be the next victim. Her uncle (Cameron Mitchell) thinks she's overreacting and the chief of police (Aldo Ray) doesn't believe her.

This film is a little bit too slow but it is well-made on a low budget. The acting is good (especially by Britt) and there are some real creepy moments when the killer goes after her. It also has a thundering music score which is excellent but seems out of place in such a low budget movie. It starts off slow but picks up speed and has a couple of great twists at the end that I didn't see coming. It's PG so it's very tame in terms of blood and guts but it works as a psychological horror film. It didn't frighten me exactly but I can't stop thinking about it. Worth checking out. I give it a 7.
