Goofs

Jennifer's pants' pleats are reversed in one or two scenes. This suggests the character was assigned two different, non-identical pairs of pants. The majority of the movie the pleats are facing away from the zipper. See more »

Alternate Versions

An uncut, time-coded preview copy was offered to UK video distributors back in 1990. It's about 90 seconds longer than the R-rated cut, and pratically ALL murder-sequences feature extensive gore. Some bootleg copies (sometimes third or fourth generation copies) can be found in the UK, the Netherlands and Belgium. See more »

A Fun, Yet Poorly Marketed, Slasher Film
18 May 2008 | by Scars_RemainSee all my reviews

I was very interested in seeing this movie for two very specific reason reasons, the main reason being that I work in a grocery store so the idea of a psycho coming to a the market and killing the night crew off really appeals to me and the other reason is that this movie is marketed as starring Bruce Campbell and he's one of my favorite actors of all time. Don't get me wrong, this movie was a total blast and very satisfying for someone who spends most of their time in a grocery store but I was very disappointed to see that Bruce Campbell was only in the film for about 2 minutes at the very end. The movie was good but that really let me down.

The acting isn't great but it doesn't really have to be because this is your typical 80's slasher and I thought Sam and Ted Raimi were awesome in their roles. The same pretty much goes for the story but there are very few slashers that have well thought out story lines so I think it's pretty much fine. So what, do you ask, can make up for a movie with okay acting and a weak story? The gore, of course! The gore in this film is great. I don't want to give the creative deaths away but you'll have to check it out for yourself.

If anyone reading this happens to work in a grocery store, they absolutely need to see movie for the experience. I can't recommend it enough if you work at one. As for everyone else, you should all check it out too because it is a really good time.
