slasher movie - psycho breaks out of sanitarium and stalks his prey
27 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was made back in the early 80's, and while it has elements of Halloween, it does not measure up to the standard Halloween set in the slasher/horror genre. But I'm not going to compare this movie to Halloween, because it is an altogether different movie in its own right, with its own atmosphere and tone.

The first 15 minutes are all you really need to see of this movie, and really, it is because of the first 15 minutes I remembered this movie to begin with. A psycho escapes from the sanitarium in the middle of the night to begin what psychos do best - stalk. Early the next morning, he slips into a woman's kitchen while she is getting her breakfast ready at the sink, and proceeds to kill her by drowning her in the sink. This scene alone is among the most violent and realistic drowning scenes I've seen in any movie, and - let this be a fair warning - the woman's bathrobe becomes undone during the attack and her breasts are exposed. Honestly, this scene is really the only memorable scene in the entire movie. After that, the movie is rather slow and boring, with an attempt at character development and an interesting ending. As far as slasher movies go, this is a bit slow moving and doesn't really have much suspense. And for all you gore fans out there, don't bother with this movie, as there really isn't any notable gore.

I gave this movie 7 stars out of 10 only because the first minutes contain some of the most disturbing, cold-blooded, and violent attacks toward women I've seen in film. It was meant to grab your attention, and it certainly did.
