    This is fondly remembered for some reason, but it's basically just another Friday the 13th clone. A mean old man gets burned up by campers in a prank gone wrong, and then he comes back and kills a whole bunch of OTHER campers in retaliation. It's notable for the incredibly nasty gore effects and for starring Jason Alexander with hair (yes, he sounded exactly like George even when he was playing a young happy guy). It's watchable but certainly has…

    Part of: My 31 days of HORROR

    Whew, it's over. I think I'm gonna watch something other than horror movies for a while now. Maybe.

    Fun sleazy little slasher flick with some good effects and lots of nudity. Surprisingly it also has nice atmosphere, makes you wish it was summer.

    I don't care what anyone says I think 1981 might be the best year for horror movies and The Burning is one those movies that will support my claim. It is a shame this movie has been forgotten over time cause it really is a classic up there with Friday the 13th and Halloween. The story is the typical man gets hurt badly by punk camp kids so he comes back to kill everyone in that camp. At no point…

    The Road To Halloween - Eliminating The Horror 'Classics'

    ARGH AN ARM! I MUST WIPE THE WET END ALL OVER MY BREASTS BEFORE I DROP IT!

    The Burning is every bit the gormless slab of entertainment that I demand any 1980s slasher should be. It's also one of those films that has a high level of notoriety, certainly on these shores, when it's completely harmless nonsense and by today's standards I'm not even sure it's all that…

    Cinema Horrorama #22 

    Disfruté mucho las escenas de los asesinatos, sobretodo la de la balsa, fue brutal, todo pasa tan rápido, no pude ni parpadear para no perderme algo. Pero al final me pregunté si por esas escenas había valido tanto la espera; toma la mitad de la película en mostrar ese contraste de la vida cotidiana del campamento (actividades, bromas pesadas, chicas con poca ropa, sed sexual) sin importar el tiempo que esto tome, contra los segundos en los…

    La clave en The Burning es la anticipación. Esta película funciona por ser una copia. Ya tenemos la experiencia y el asesino anterior en mente, así que se puede dar el tiempo de jugar con lo que esperamos y con lo que sabemos va a suceder. Los momentos de "ahí viene, ahí vine, jaja no era nada" son comunes en el cine de terror, pero destacan en esta película pues se avienta una hora de ellos. Ahora, mi pregunta es:…

    doesn't do anything fresh for the camp slasher subgenre, but the last act is pretty sweet.

    Basically more fun than pretty much all the Friday the 13th films put together. The plotting is all pretty standard but there's a lot more energy here than with most slasher films, and the infamous riverboat massacre is one of the most cinematic in the genre.

    I wouldn't call the depiction of the teens progressive. But its not as dismissive of teenage sexuality as the Friday films are (where the older I get the more convinced I am that they…
