THE BURNING (R)
MGM HOME ENTERTAINMENT (1981)
Starring: Brian Matthews, Leah Atres, Brian Backer, Larry Joshua, Jason Alexander & more.
This is a great Slasher flick from the early 80's. This one takes on a similar story line as the
FRIDAY THE 13TH films. A camp janitor gets horribly burned after a prank from some of the
campers go wrong. The janitor is taken away and sent to an insane asylum once his burns have been
taken care of. Many years later he returns to the campground and takes revenge on the campers.
This is a very cool Slasher flick with very innovative death scenes with the special effects and gore
work being done by Tom Savini. The film also has a very young Holly Hunter & Jason Alexander
as some of the campers. One of the best Slasher films to come out of the 80's. A must for all fans of
this genre or fans of Tom Savini's great gore work.
