The stars of this film are Cameron Mitchell (232 performances in film), Pamelyn Ferdin (71 roles, including The Beguiled), Wesley Eure, and Kent Kingsley.
But, the real star of this mystery is Marianne Walter, who started her film career in the King Kong remake. You thought you were seeing Jessica Lange's breast's didn't you? No, they were Marianne's, and she really puts them on display here in her first film role. She gets nailed by the slasher after a long masturbation scene in the bathtub. Someone must have noticed her talent, as she changed her name to Kelly Nichols, and made 84 more films, most of them rated X.
This movie has some gruesome murders using tools, but it is not overly bloody. The real interest, aside from Marianne, is who the slasher is, and the reason for the murders, and how it ends. It has some real interesting twists and is made all the more interesting by the fact that is it supposedly based on a true story.
You will feel a little guilty watching this misogynistic trash, but it is cinematic history as this is one of the 74 video nasties banned in Britain. It was released with 1 minute and 46 seconds cut in 2000.
