100% Spoiler-Filled Review, 19 April 2011
Author: jfgibson73 from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Here is another movie meant to be campy and retro as a nod to 80's slasher films. What I couldn't figure out is why the characters sound like they're stuck in a 50's sitcom. If you have seen Psycho Beach Party, Blood Feast 2, or The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, you'll have an idea of the tone of this movie.

You can probably decide whether or not you'd enjoy this movie by considering if you appreciate movies that try to create an intentionally campy feel. The dialog sounds it came from an episode of The Brady Bunch, as it is meant to be corny.

The story is literally about a group of kids who go to a cabin to celebrate a birthday and then get killed. Everyone dies except the lead actress. In the end, she fatally injures the killer several times, but he keeps coming, so she eventually flees.

It felt like a bit of cheat not to have any clue as to who the killer was or what motivated him. Literally every character introduced in this movie ended up dead (except the girl), so there was no one left that we knew about. In one moment, the killer has his breathing tube broken, and appears to suffocate. This felt like the best way to end the story. Of course he kept going because the main inspiration cited by the director was the Friday the 13th movies.

The bottom line was that I didn't really enjoy any of it that much. For a movie that seemed to have an awareness of what usually happens in slasher films, this one didn't do anything different. It was an R-rated episode of Scooby-Doo where the gang all died, the crimes didn't get solved, and none of the action was humorous or entertaining anywhere along the way.
