You wouldn't hit me again, would you son?, 5 December 2009
Author: lastliberal from United States

I am sure Danny Thomas never thought that "Make Room for Daddy" would be the tag line in a film like this.

Terry O'Quinn (John Locke from "Lost") is a slasher/serial killer in a mental hospital. He escapes, and tries to start a normal life.

But, that old slasher brain can't handle stress, and his romance with Meg Foster ends badly for him.

Not a whole lot of slasher action. Mostly just a small town romance story with a slasher angle that plays in a few times.

I really don't know how it could have been done differently, but it just didn't have that sparkle.
