(** out of ***** -- and I'm probably being generous) Well, if you can get past the first half hour, with drunk college guys joking around, mugging for the camera, and doing one irritating imitation after another (who's idea was that?), then you'll probably find the rest of this mystery slasher mildly diverting, at the least. A killer in a mascot bear costume with big round eyes and knives for paws (kinda like Freddy Krueger) is knocking off guys and gals on a late-night scavenger hunt. When the story isn't following one lame relationship problem after another, we get to watch Hal Holbrook, as a campus security guard, sitting at a desk looking bored and out of place as he tries to figure out who the killer is. Not all of the acting's bad, and there are some fairly scary moments, but there's hardly any blood and too many mindless, coed shenanigans. The use of oldies rock and roll songs and some of the hair and clothing styles make the movie look like it was supposed to take place in the '50s (even though the annoying school DJ -- who for some damn reason gets his ugly mug shown about EVERY FIVE MINUTES in his studio -- tells us it's part of a some kinda '50s flashback weekend).
HIGHLIGHT: The final shot is pretty chilling, and it's a great leaves-you-hanging place for the movie to end. Still, probably not worth the rental (assuming you can actually find this anywhere).
