Better than its reputation.
27 June 2006 | by (Tokyo, Japan) – See all my reviews

This film got lost in the glut of slasher flicks that avalanched into the vid stores back in the merry old 80's.

Mental hospital escapee tries to survive outside. And you just KNOW he's going to revert to his old homicidal ways. And of course you've got your lone cop trying to find him before he does.

The dark atmosphere helped a lot here. One got the impression one saw more in the shadows. I kept thinking I missed a few clues.

The acting itself was so-so at its best, but no one was bad, so I guess that's a plus.

The cover art on the video box sucked me in back in '88 or so when I saw this. I never regretted it. There's so much drek from when video got huge. This one is worth remembering.
