not nearly the worst
5 August 2015 | by jamestapleySee all my reviews

While I can't argue with any of the negative reviews of the film it is nonetheless an interesting period piece and deserves some consideration for the upfront use (perhaps abuse is a better term?) of interracial and lesbian relationships to advance the otherwise weak and formulaic slasher plot.

And yes the viewer might be forgiven for thinking the film was made only as an excuse to show nubile nudes to adolescent males. Is that really such a bad thing?

Anyone at all interested in period slasher films should see this once... in this case once is enough. While not memorable you nonetheless won't forget it.

Did I mention M. Kostner's "let's put on a play in the barn!" acting skills on display?

That alone is worth the price of admission especially as the film is available online for free.
