Oh, my...
14 June 2004 | by (Firenze, Italy) – See all my reviews

Bottom of the barrell slasher, with a derivative plot (an insane serial killer evades from a prison bus and return to his house where he started his massacres ten years before, but a few teenagers are there camping. You may imagine the rest of the story), most of the killing happening outside of the camera (so, where is the fun? And there is a total lack of invention even in the various deaths depicted here), without a single nude scene (and what is a teen slasher without at least a couple of tits? Be serious...) and with a debatable acting at best. Even the killer is a delusion. Better to stay away from this one
