Pretty standard stuff, but still, not bad if you're looking for just the right movie.
Back when Terry and Todd were young, Terry killed someone at the drive-in, and blamed it on his oddball brother. They put Todd away, and Terry was allowed to roam free. Ten years later, their mother announces she is getting married to her boyfriend, and Terry goes on a killing spree in anger (I suppose, I couldn't figure any other reason) around the Florida apartment complex she lives, killing off friends and neighbors, and saying Terry, who broke free from the asylum, is responsible.
Not a bad movie, though there were some dull scenes. The gore is great, with some very gruesome deaths. One girl gets chopped in two, and is still alive, screaming. I think a guy gets a machete to the face. Maybe two of them do. And...well, you'll have to see them. They're all gory. And there are some genuine scares, some nudity, and a very twisted ending. The climax is pretty good, with Terry chasing Karen, the quintessential good girl, around the complex, a la Michael Myers, walking calmly while she runs like hell. As for the twisted ending--it's quite impressive. A nice note to end the movie on. Overall, a recommendation, though, it's not the best thing I've seen. Still, if you're looking for just standard slasher fare, this is perfect.
