Mrs. Voorhees is dead, and Camp Crystal Lake is shut down, but a camp next to the infamous place is stalked by an unknown assailant. Is it Mrs. Voorhees' son Jason, who did not really drown in the lake some 30 years before?

According to director Tony Maylam the reason the film's finale didn't take place in a cave, as it was originally supposed to, was due to the fact that the cave where it was going to be shot was full of bats. Tom Savini also said another cave that was scouted for the film collapsed just after it had been surveyed. See more »

They never found his body, but they say his spirit lives in the forest. This forest. A maniac, a thing no longer human. They say he lives on whatever he can catch. Eats them raw, alive maybe. And every year he picks on a summer camp and seeks his revenge for the terrible things those kids did to him. Every year he kills. Right now he's out there. Watching. Waiting. So don't look; he'll see you. Don't breathe; he'll hear you. Don't move; you're dead!

The 1980's. What a decade. A decade known for bad fashion and hair bands, but also known as the decade of the slasher film. With the multitude of slasher flicks that came out in the 80's it was inevitable that some would be overlooked. The Burning is one of those great slash flicks. Filmed in the same location as Friday the 13th and unfairly compared to it. However The Burning kicks Friday the 13th to the curb. The Burning is about a camp caretaker who after being horribly disfigured by a group of campers playing a prank comes back for sweet vengeance. A dish best served bloody thanks to Tom Savini and his genius effects. This flick has it all. All the ingredients that make a good slash flick, you know what kind of stuff I mean. (T&A BABY!!, plenty of the red stuff and that unique brand of dialogue.) The story although now cliche doesn't miss a step. Definetly a must see for all slash fans. Oh yeah. The infamous raft scene you've heard so much about is AWESOME! Jason could have never pulled a stunt like that. KEEP SLASHIN!
