Decent entry in the slasher canon, perhaps notable as so much of it takes place in broad daylight. Some decent effects and performances elevate it a bit, although the script isn't great, and I didn't care for the music. Quite cool to see a young, non-bald Jason Alexander in an early role. Fun, but hardly original. I still don't understand what is meant to go on at these summer camps...

For a long time I thought this was a Friday the 13th rip-off But then I discovered it was written before Friday and Harvey Weinstein was one of the script writers (a real monster, creating a movie monster) Which is really disturbing when viewing the scenes of teen boys pressuring girls to have sex As for the movie itself actually not that bad it's a bit corny but stuff kids would really do and actually feel like kids not 20 somethings and Tom Savini effects did not disappoint

Harvey's original story pitch was just about women being pressured into unwanted sex and the other Weinstein decided to just drizzle a slasher on it. The Savini work in this is great, you'll see shears shear like never before. Jason Alexander either has the hairiest back ever or has some Yakuza tattoo going on

A fine example of the 80's summer camp slasher flick about a horribly burned killer named Cropsy who butchers kids with hedge clippers. It's got boobs, good suspense, cute girls and bloody kills with excellent gore effects. Plus a young Jason Alexander as the annoying loudmouth fat kid.

Are there any horror movies that take place in or around a cabin?
