Cupid, 25 May 2013
Author: Toronto85 from Canada

A crazed man obsessed with falling in love stalks the new girl in town in 'Cupid'. We first see Eric kill his girlfriend killing her after she refuses to accept his engagement. They had only just met recently, but being the romantic Eric is, he thought it was appropriate. We then see our leading lady Jennifer arriving in town. She applies for a job at the local bookstore and that's when she meets crazy guy Eric. They talk about the story of Cupid which she knows of (and he is obsessed with), and they start dating. We also meet Eric's insane sister Dana who is madly in love with him. In order to capture Jennifer's heart, Eric will have to go through Dana and a few others to reach his goal.

I really enjoyed this thriller/horror flick. It was pretty fast paced, and I never lost interest throughout the entire thing. I thought the acting from Zach Galligan and Ashley Laurence was strong. Mary Crosby was particularly great as the disturbed sister of Eric. It was strange to see Galligan play crazy after his good guy role in the Gremlins series. The story is pretty good as it explores a bit of the story of Cupid and Psyche.

I'd check this one out if you can find it. I got it on VHS years ago, and I don't believe it's on DVD as of yet.
