An unknown killer, clad in 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.
A decades-old folk tale surrounding a deranged murderer killing those who celebrate Valentine's Day turns out to be true to legend when a group defies the killer's order and people start turning up dead.
While playing with a puzzle, a teenager is repressed by his mother, and he kills her and severs her body with an ax. Forty years later, in an university campus in Boston, a serial killer kills young women and severs their bodies in parts, stealing body pieces from each student. Lt. Bracken makes a deal with the dean of the campus, and infiltrates the agent Mary Riggs as if she were a tennis teacher and together with the student Kendall, they try to find the identity of the killer.

This is a fun horror film that takes you back to a time when horror was fun and over the top. The violence and premise is so over the top I'm astounded that people are offended. It's ridiculous, but that is the fun. The film follows a serial killer who is chopping up co-eds in the college town. A deal is struck to go under cover and yes the execution is as fun and ridiculous as it sounds! Throughout the film people are killed and the most absurd ways. I won't give any away, but I was shaking my head and disbelief and waiting the next absurd scenario. The film also has shaky dubbing and the acting and script so over the top it is impossible not to be entertained by this Grindhouse classic!
