Slasher cheese at it's maximum!
19 November 2004 | by (Noctropolis) – See all my reviews

I don't know if this was a direct to cable movie, but I watched it on the basic cable system months ago after it's release.

I don't regret. It's one of the cheesiest slasher flicks I've watched. I thought I was watching a mid 80's slasher because there's a marked 80's feeling through the movie.

The f/x are as cheap as you can get. The acting is hilarious. Sir Isaac Hayes delivers a weird performance as the badass Jed.

I loved his line at the end before he gives Uncle Sam a little of his own.

Very low budget slasher flick. Doesn't deserves a watch but if you got nothing, NOTHING else to do and it's very late, you should give it a chance. Or at least watch 10 minutes of it to give you an idea of what you're going through. 2/10.
