One of the better cheezier films
15 June 2003 | by (Norfolk, VA) – See all my reviews

This is one of the better of the cheezy and cheaper films I've seen so far under the likes of "Slumber Party Massacure", "Friday 13th" and "April Fools" day. It tries to take the same plot as "Phyco" but falls flat with the end of Frankies mother which could have been more usefull in the movie if her character would have continued on. Frankie plays a strange guy that is looking for love in all the wrong places like underground parking lots, male dance parties and apartment houses. He keeps finding the wrong girl, or what he thinks is the wrong girl and when his contience tells him this, he kills the girl. He then stalks a girl who got away and finds her at a party and begins stalking her there along with the rest of the group which gives him plenty of victims. Frankie is hillarious with his Gomer Pyle laugh, mad war makeup and intence facial expressions. He even kills me with the things he says "What are you doing? Mother would get mad if she saw you doing that, don't you ever do that again!" It's one of those movies that I like to watch just to get a good laugh and in my opinion the killings are even worth watching than most cheezy horror films.
