An unknown killer, clad in World War II U.S. Army fatigues, stalks a small New Jersey town bent on reliving a 35 year-old double murder by focusing on a group of college kids holding an annual Spring Dance.
While playing with a puzzle, a teenager is repressed by his mother, and he kills her and severs her body with an ax. Forty years later, in an university campus in Boston, a serial killer kills young women and severs their bodies in parts, stealing body pieces from each student. Lt. Bracken makes a deal with the dean of the campus, and infiltrates the agent Mary Riggs as if she were a tennis teacher and together with the student Kendall, they try to find the identity of the killer.Written by

At various times there was an interest in doing a sequel following the film's financial success in the United States and Spain, but it was Juan that had already been involved in another project and tried to get a sequel started years later, but he couldn't. With show business the American producers soon forgot the idea, despite the success at the box office. See more »
(at around 2 mins) After Timmy kills the mother in the prologue, her mouth is open when she dies. In the next shot, it is closed; this also happens in a flashback. See more »
Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the king's horses and all the king's men. Couldn't put the pieces together again.

Young women on a college campus are brutally (and I mean BRUTALLY) murdered by a chainsaw-wielding madman. The incompetent police decide to use an even more incompetent undercover cop/tennis whiz to try to figure out who it is. They also use a voluntary student (campus "stud" with lots of free time that really should be a suspect here) who is ordered to...protect the undercover cop? Yeah. It is really difficult to tell whether or not they tried to be funny (e.g, a naked soon-to-be victim just lies there, sucks in her tummy, and perks up her breasts while awaiting the chainsaw). I'm hoping so, because there are some really pointless scenes. It also tries to be a mystery, which is ridiculous because anyone who can do simple math can figure out who the murderer is. The "surprise" at the end, while completely absurd, does sort of make-up for the blatant misogyny in the rest of the movie. Sort of. Might be entertaining with a bunch of friends and booze. My Rating: 2.5/10
