Amusing child serial killer. Those were the days...
25 March 2007 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

I remember renting this once in a while back in the early 90's. I had fun with it although it's a predictable slasher flick.

The plot was easy to follow and entertaining as I remember. There were some good death scenes and amusing acting.

The Mikey character was truly good and that's because of the talented child actor who portrayed it.

I remember a death scene involving a pool. Nice sequences and decent gore.

I haven't rented this one in years but I have good memories about it. As far as I remember, it's a decent, entertaining slasher. Recommended for slasher hard core fans or those who enjoy killer child flicks. As someone else mentioned, this movie always reminds me of "The Stepfather".
