    "The Burning" is hands down my favorite slasher film of the 80's..
    I personally love the killer in the woods slashers the best and this is the perfect premise.This film starts as a flashback "of course".

    The kids at a summer camp play a trick that goes terribly wrong on Cropsy the mean spirited grounds keeper and he is burned beyond recognition, Flash to hospital where the horribly burned and disfigured Cropsy is being treated and going through physical therapy…

    The Burning is one of my all time favorite slasher flicks and one of the better ones to come after the classic Friday the 13th. The gore FX from Tom Savini still thrill me to this day.

    Pick up the great blu-ray release today from Scream! Factory.

    I give the PQ and AQ a solid 4/5 and the disc has some nice extras.

    My favorite horror movie of all time(tied with phantasm and halloween II) the Burning is also the best camp slasher flick. If someone said here watch the burning or the first Friday, I'd punch him and say YOU ALREADY KNOW ITS THE BURNING FUCKFACE!

    I think The Burning catches everything that is great about the early 80's slasher movie. It has the atmosphere, it has great characters that you care about, it has memorable kills and an iconic killer with his just as iconic choice of weapon. The music from synth virtuoso Rick Wakeman adds another layer of everything I love with this movie and helps to lift up certain scenes even more. If you compare The Burning to a lot of other slasher…

    Such a great slasher flick from the early 80's. Tom Savini's makeup effects are amazing.

    Halloween Hype 2013, Part XXIV

    Watched this for the first time last year, on YouTube, and fell in love. Fired up the blu-ray for the first time to start my Halloween day viewings. A summer camp slasher classic that delivers everything - great setting, motivation for the killer, fantastic effects from Tom Savini, interesting score (also love the lack of score in a couple key scenes), Carrick Glenn, that tremendous raft massacre scene and so much more. The Scream Factory blu-ray is fantastic. A gorgeous print and plethora of worthy extras that I look forward to digging into at a later date.

    One of the best slasher films I've ever seen. I'm actually in shock about how suspenseful and well thought out the movie is. From its likable characters to its copious amounts of gore and nudity, this is the slasher you've been looking for if you're tired of breaking out your old copies of Friday the 13th and Halloween.
