Rather weak slasher picture...
3 January 2000 | by (Poland) – See all my reviews

Somebody is killing people in the quiet,little town.The main suspect is deformed gardener Charlie Puckett...This cheap, trashy slasher flick can't offer us nothing memorable.The cast is incredibly wooden,there are also a lot of predictable cliches.Even gory sequences are toned down.All the murders are rather mundane(for example one biker gets an axe in his chest-nothing new here!).To sum up,watch this only in case if you want to see every slasher flick or if you like to see some cheap thrills plus some gore.
