"The Greenskeeper" is one of those movies that gets better with repeat viewings (and lots of beer). It doesn't take itself too seriously and has a nice bit of humor and gore. While a tad slow at first the movie really takes off in the 2nd and 3rd act when the Greenskeeper starts his spree. I could see Hollywood re-making a movie like this with more money and some star wattage. The setting (Country Club) was clever and the methods by which the overprivileged characters were killed were inventive. The cover box was deceptive as it was too straight up horror looking when the movie really plays more like a horror/comedy. Imagine if a poorman's "Clerks" met "The Burning". Not a great movie by any standard but definitely worth a rental or low price purchase.
