This 80's slasher movie from director Ruggero Deodato was actually quite good considering it was basically modelled on Friday the 13th, and countless other teen slashers popular at the time.

A group of friends head off to Colorado for Spring Break only to fall prey to an evil Shaman, who was actually quite scary looking.

The story isn't anything new and neither were the shenanigans that the group got up to, but this film had great camera movement, a good score by Claudio Simonetti of The Goblins, and an atmosphere of dread that actually made the film quite scary.

The deaths were quite violent and gory and you'll get a good jolt the first time you see The Shaman, but it didn't really cover any new ground, and you know who the killer is all along as it's pretty obvious.

The cast were quite good too and there were plenty of familiar faces, including David Hess and Charles Napier which helped to elevate the film from the doldrums of B-movie hell.

OVERALL SUMMARY
I was beginning to think that I had finally seen the last of the great 80's slashers, but this flick is something of a hidden gem, and slasher fans should find the odd thrill here.
