Storyline

Officer Joe Vickers would probably make a good policeman if it weren't for his two nasty habits. Firstly, he is a devoted satanist; secondly - he likes to kill people. When he meets a group of teenagers spending their vacation in a wood hut, he decides to investigate... Written by Jaromir "Vassago" Krol <jaromirk@kr.onet.pl>

Cop #1: According to psychiatric records, Henley - Vickers - came from a broken home, abused child. Police were always being called in to break up fights. State finally got custody of him during his formative years. It was then that Henley came to believe God was on his side and would always take care of him. Then when the state kicked him out on the street, Henley came to believe that God had deserted him. And that's when he turned to Satan.

Awesome 80's horror cheese!!
23 July 2003 | by (Hartford) – See all my reviews

If you're in the mood for a great 80's horror, full of cliches and bad acting, look no further! 6 young adults get together at a mansion in the woods (looks alot like the suburbs) and are slowly dispatched by the killer. A nice selection of cheesy one-liners, along with the ambiguously gay character of Blake Washer, make this a perfect rental for a night of laughs and moans of "oh gaaawd, whatever"!
