Six stereo typical (nerd, jock, slut, geeky girl, etc) coeds soon discover that their dorm is haunted by an evil doctor due to the fact that their university was once a lunatic asylum. The janitor is creepy too, there seem to be quite a few of those in horror films! How the doctor manages to come back from the dead to kill is not explained but his mannerisms and the dreamlike death scenes are obviously similar to A Nightmare on Elm St movies, only nowhere near as good. Acting is reasonable enough & we do get some gory kills, Scream queen Lin Shaye makes an appearance but only for a few lines. This supernatural slasher is not a bad movie but neither is it a good one. I picked it up very cheap on DVD so have no complaints, though I doubt that I'd want to watch it again.
