Poorly made slasher is as dull as they come

This movie is not as violent as it seems, it is pretty discrete with the violence it shows. But don't be fooled into believing that this is great for family horror movie night. The film is incredibly poorly made, while the acting was decent and the idea that anyone's a suspect is interesting it has been done to death. The plot is nothing special and though I did not predict who the killer was correctly there was no character development between them and Jamie Lee Curtis' character at all. The biggest concern that parents should have is the sex and drug use, though even this is pretty tame for an 80's horror film. Overall, I do not recommend this movie at all, watch Halloween or Psycho instead.

Pretty Entertaining

A pretty nice slasher flick. A lot of good scares throughout. It can be a little slow, but if your a slasher fan I recommend it.
