Plot Summary:
"When someone starts using the business end of a pair of hedgeclippers on the more snobbish patrons of a posh country club, rumors fly the slice-n'-dice handiwork is the signiture of The Greenskeeper, a serial killer long thought dead from an explosion years ago. Allen, whose mother owns the country club, begins having nightmare visions where he is haunted by The Greenskeeper. Allen begins to suspect he may have a connection to The Greenskeeper he never dared imagine. Meanwhile, the beautiful jetsetters of the club decide to sneak in after hours for some skinny-dipping, partying, and sex-on-the-green. Unfortunately for the teens, The Greenskeeper decides to crash the party, and armed with golf equipment and landscaping tools, begins picking off Izods one by one. Joining forces with his new love interest Elena, Allen races to the club to try to save his friends. He and Elena must play a deadly game of cat and mouse to survive, because when you have a tee time with The Greenskeeper, it's par for the corpse!"

It's 'The Burning' meets 'The In Crowd' as a group of country club teens are terrorised by a badly burnt handyman during the summer season, but it was somewhat disappointing.

I had waited for years to see this movie and it finally made it to UK shores minus a letter (It's known here as The Green Keeper) and despite decent cover art and a slick trailer, the film turned out to be a very unfunny comedy with a dash of horror for good measure.

Like the similarly flash but dull 'Adam & Evil', the film saw the characters fart about for forty minutes before anyone died, and then turned into an all out slashathon in the final half hour or so.

The plot was tired and poorly executed, and in one scene I didn't even know what the killer was doing to one character as they hadn't properly established the surroundings.

The film was aesthetically pleasing and they did a lot of great work with lighting and so on, which meant that there were actually a few good jump scenes and the deaths were quite gory, but the film ended up like a piss-poor parody of the far superior 'Club Dread'.

The cast were mostly newcomers with the exception of Ron Lester, but then again after losing over 300 pounds and being shamefully underused, you probably won't notice him either.

OVERALL SUMMARY
The Greenskeeper had lots of potential and has the odd moment or two that stood out but it was too much of a farce to be taken seriously. It didn't work as a zany comedy/horror but it may well have worked as an old fashioned 80's slasher movie.
