People are getting murdered down under via a barbed wire noose and then their eyes are gouged out. There are a variety of suspects at a nearby girls boarding school including students, teachers, and a nun. We also follow a rivalry between the local surfer townies and a group of preppy guys from a local all-boys school. Written by
When this film was released theatrically in Australia, it included a William Castle-like "Fright Break", a short intermission which gave audiences a chance to walk a yellow line to the cinema's exit if the film was too frightening for them, giving those who took the so-called "Chicken Walk" to the exits their money back. The "Fright Break" sequence is included on the Australian video release. See more »
Since I just watched Jess Franco's BLOODY MOON, my film addled brain logically felt this Aussie slasher is what I should watch next. Bad move, brain, bad move. A killer is offing girls at a private school, which spells trouble for our two lovebird leads. This is pretty standard stuff but the filmmakers absolutely blow it about 50 minutes in. Our killer - always in the shadows - wraps some barb wire around the next of a young guy and, inadvertently, steps into the light for a second and you see their face! They left it in but keep playing the "Who is this crazy killer?" angle for the rest of the film. Director Alec Mills is usually a DP who has done work on some big films (the two Dalton BOND flicks, for example) so the mistake is doubly embarrassing. Avoid, even if your brain tries to tell you a double feature of BLOODY MOON and BLOODMOON is a good idea.
