The movie opens up with Beth in her hospital bed, who proceeds to tell a doctor about what happened; in other words, the entire movie is a flashback. She moves into this sorority house, and immediately starts having dreams and visions of people being murdered. We cut-scene over to Bobby, who is locked up in a mental hospital. He's going nuts, even more-so, as he realizes that Beth is in his old house again. He proceeds to escape, and goes to the house to off her and her friends.

Typical eighties slasher right here, and a decent one at that. The storyline is pretty simple; guy escapes hospital. Guy goes to house. Guy kills people. They did try to throw some twists in to give it a bit more of it's own flavor, but it really didn't work out too well. We find out that Beth was adopted by her aunt at the age of five, because her family had been killed off by her brother, Bobby. They share a psychic link, so that's why Beth was having those dreams and visions; she knew Bobby was coming for her, and on Bobby's end, he knew where she was. Somehow during all of this, Bobby seemingly receives the ability to fly through the air. In one scene, the ladies are in an upstairs room, I'd venture to guess about three stories up. Bobby miraculously dives through the window, and I'm not talking a simple break-and-climb through deal; he literally *dives* through the window. But honestly, you don't watch eighties slashers for the ingenious storylines, do you? You watch for two of the three horror B's; blood and breasts.

Blood was decent enough, though there could have been a bit more. Since Bobby's weapon of choice is a hunting knife, all kills pretty much go the same way. Bobby will stab someone, we'll see a bit of blood, they grab whatever part of their body has been stabbed, and die. Onto the next victim. The look of the blood used was kinda screwed up as well; it almost looked like thick red honey in most parts, not liquid at all. But the body count was decent, I believe he racked up six or seven kills in his time out.

On the breasts end of things, we really didn't get a lot. A quick flash in a shower, some humping-in-a-tent action, and one of the corniest scenes I've ever seen in a movie, eighties or not. The girls of the sorority gather around after the boss or whatever has left; one speaks up: "You know, there's always been something I've wanted to do, like, if time froze for everyone in the world but me... I want to try on (boss)'s clothes!!!" Up they run to her room, and a five-minute boob-fest ensues.

Overall, a decent film if you enjoy the genre, but they kinda skimped on the B's in my opinion. 5/10, and only because I'm a major fan of this type of movie.

Joe Bob Briggs used to host a horror movie show on the USA channel; every week, it'd be some obscure horror film, or an eighties slasher, or some weird sci-fi shit. He rated the films based on the three B's... blood, breasts, and beasts. Since beasts (monsters, in his sense of the word) don't normally show up in these types of slashers, I went with 2/3 of the B's.
