A New Low
2 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is so bad you will think it was made in the 70's, not the 80's.

It's like the worst of the worst slasher pics made in that era.

I would not be surprised if this movie was actually made in the 70s and released a decade later.

It's really that bad.

And the worst part: not gratuitous nudity or sex.

The Story.

A patient escapes from a mental hospital, killing one of his keepers and then a University professor after he makes his way to the local college.

Next semester, the late prof's replacement and a new group of students have to deal with a new batch of killings.
