Fun campy movie
19 January 2019 | by finalcut-93420See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie. It was a funny campy movie with a great sound track. I thought the storyline was good. Enjoyed the actors and loved that it was filmed on WNY. Really liked the that Robby from the Goo Goo Dolls even lent his talent to the theme song. I bought the movie for my collection. It is a good old high-school slasher movie. I hope others enjoy the movie for what it is. FUN!!!!!
