Slasher in the desert
14 February 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The Mojave desert is the backdrop for this late 80's slasher where a psychiatrist Dr Barbara Shelly (Wendy MacDonald) takes a group of patients for a spot of confrontational therapy. Unfortunately for them, they don't realise that this will be taken literally by one of the group and the party really begins.

The movie begins well with a child murdering they're father with a garden tool and the conversing with the patients and the doctor was great to watch especially when the murders starts and they find themselves trapped in the middle of nowhere, although nothing fresh or inventive about this movie, well it was the late 80's and the ideas had well worn thin by then. The film lives up to its name – at least in the uncut version – with some splashy and quite graphic special fx. It also has a rabble-rousing, over-the-top showdown between the killer and remaining victims-to-be. And some of the acting wasn't perfect but oh well.

There were some standouts here like Lisa Loring as grumpy Dory and Cassie (Lisa Savage) was hot and sexy as the nympo who sleeps with half the cast.
