Some campers play a prank on the janitor, and he ends up on fire which sends him to a mental hospital. The janitor comes back years later to take revenge on the kids at the same summer camp. These kids had nothing to do with him being burned, but one by one they are killed and chopped up. The kids have to survive the week.
The movie starts out, like many 80’s horror movies, a bunch of kids at a summer camp looking to have the time of their life, until a killer comes to kill them all. The death scenes in the movie are great for early 80’s horror. The killer uses hedge clipper to kill some of the kids that is not something you see much. This is Jason Alexander's first film, as well as Holly Hunter and Fisher Stevens, which all have big acting careers now. It’s a good horror film, and I think you should check it out. It is so worth watching. Enjoy.
