The film follows a girl named Madison Penrose, spoiled throughout her life to the extent that she convinces her parents to re-open Rollerdome for her Sweet 16. Obviously, the Rollerdome once closed because a series of brutal murders took place at the locale, and, of course, the killer comes back to wreak havoc during her party. Written by
I really wasn't sure what to think of this when I saw it for rent. It has a name like so many second rate holiday horror films that came out in the 1980's. Plus, when I found out it aired on MTV, that was also a big turnoff for me. Still, the reviews seemed positive, so I gave it a try.
I am very glad that I did. This movie did such an excellent job of being what a teen slasher film is meant to be. There are terrible characters, bloody deaths for those characters and even and ending worthy of the genre.
I won't give a full review here because others have. However, this definitely gets my recommendation. I watched "The Mist" for the first time a few days ago because it had gotten such rave reviews. However, I found it boring and rather dreadful. The thought had entered my head that this might be a slow summer for horror rentals. However, this movie was so much more enjoyable! Watch it if you haven't and if you enjoy good slasher films. I recommend it highly.
