Horrendously Bad (But Fun)
21 September 2002 | by (NYCity) – See all my reviews

HHOH5 will cause any "Scream"-fan to shut the tape off in under three minutes. However, fans of horrible horrors will eat up the killer-in-a-Richard-Nixon mask thing, as well as plenty of priceless dialogue. You've been warned.
