    More or less the peak of the summer camp slasher set, certainly better made than most if not all of the Fridays. Runs through every cliché of the genre like it's ticking boxes, but does so with confident efficiency.

    Not as tight and sound as I remember it being the first time around, but still a solid addition into the cannon of FRIDAY THE 13th rip offs and 80s slashers films alike.

    And while all the flaws you expect to find in these kind of films are indeed here and definitely boggle the film down in terms of predictability and pacing, some early Tom Savini effects magic, a cast chalked full of recognizable faces (Jason Alexander! Holly Hunter! Fisher…

    Xanax and Strippers Challenge: or Holy Fuck, I Need to Learn When to Quit.

    I have gazed into the arsehole of Fisher Stevens.

    Baby Jason Alexander is cute. All the other boys are perverts and rapists. The killer is awesome, love the Savini gore. Classic summer camp thrill.

    I think garden shears are my favorite slasher weapon.

    Ein guter Slasher/Backwood(?) Film mit komischen Elementen, der aber auch seine Längen aufweist. Wirklich spannend wird es selten, weil der Killer einfach zu dumm und träge ist. Der Anfang ist zudem zu lange. Ich dachte, das Heckenscherenmotiv von der Everything Went Black von Black Flag wiederzukennen, bin mir dazu aber nicht mehr so sicher, da die Schwer im Film meistens überkopf gehalten wird...

    You wanna get nuts? Let's get nuts.

    This is somehow every slasher ever made while also someone not like any other slasher ever made.

    20 Words or Less Recommendation/Review: It's got great kills at least. I guess I expected something a little more fun and trashy? Okay I suppose.

    Slammer/banger of a demented '80s summer camp movie (pr. much first and foremost) come slasher with Jason Alexander, Tom Savini FX and some absolutely bizarre technical credits given what these people went on to do. The Burning is probably responsible for the creation of Miramax/The Weinstein Company, which is absolutely absurd.

    The burning is an often overlooked and certainly underrated slasher film, it feels very familiar, very much in the same spirit as Friday the 13th telling the story of a group of teens at a camp. The difference is that director Tony Maylam delivers some solid scares, and the cast is actually surprisingly strong. These characters feel more fleshed out and believable then your typical slasher movie would allow, the makeup effects are first rate thanks to the amazing Tom…
