An enjoyable "slasher in the woods" movie from the master of exploitation
11 July 2007 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Ruggero Deodato's (the man that made the exploitation classic "Cannibal Holocaust") rather late entry into the 80's slasher genre is a rather enjoyable and atmospheric one. To sum up an extremely thin plot: a nasty Indian shaman is hacking and slashing his way through a group of horny, fun-loving teens on a campsite in the middle of the woods that happens to be built on an Indian burial ground. That is the complexity of the plot but for late 80's slasher does it need an in-depth plot?

To make up for the lack of story there is plenty of gory, vicious deaths (stabbings, axe to the face, throat impalements), a nice amount of nude women (and a naked fat guy), a creepy soundtrack and characters that I actually wanted to live. The cinematography is quite nice (the shots through the woods are especially excellent) and there are a bunch of famous horror veteran actors to fill the supporting cast. We have David Hess ("Last House on the Left", "The House on the Edge of the Park"), Ivan Rassimov ("Jungle Holocaust"), Charles Napier ("Beyond the Valley of the Dolls") and John Steiner ("Cut and Run", Deported Women of the SS Special Section"). This movie may not be his best venture into horror, it ain't got a very high rating here and it is definitely not the most memorable horror but as a slasher it is damn entertaining.
