Previously butchered by the censorsBy a customer from cardiff , 27 May 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Story about a camp caretaker who gets burt to a crisp after a prank gone wrong, five years later he gets out of hospital and exats revenge at the camp.
This sounds a lot like friday the 13th, but is quite good if you like cheesy horrors frow the early 80's video nasties era. There was an earlier version of this released on DVD which was cut. This version is the FULL uncut version. Some of the effects look a bit ropey now, others are stomach churning. Lots of femaly nudity in an exploitative un politically correct way that would never be allowed in films today.

Not as hot as it wasBy Loopgrinder (170 reviews) , 17 Nov 2013I was about 13 when I saw this movie, one of the very first teen slasher movies of the video nasty era but sadly watching it all these years later there is little to rave about. Very dated effects, bad acting and the run of the mill revenge story - a pre runner to the Friday the 13th and Nightmare on Elm Street franchises.
Teen slasher with nubile knockersBy Pale (94 reviews) from LONDON , 02 Nov 2013Standard sexy teen slasher story set during a college summer camp. Very good if you like this sort of thing.
Slash and burnBy RJNeb2 (1012 reviews) from London , 06 Oct 2013Now more famous for being a video nasty, The Burning is a pretty standard slasher movie with a disfigured man cutting through the teens at a summer camp with a pair of garden shears. Under those terms, it does the job fine (this is one genre where high art doesnt really enter the equation) and is certainly nowhere near as bad or as graphic as its reputation would suggest.
Great horror classicBy Tartan1971 (92 reviews) , 22 Sep 2013Yes the same sort of story line as Friday the 13th, but I enjoyed that film and enjoyed this one. Good fun .
Great film!,worth a watchBy demonicale (6 reviews) , 05 Jun 2013To cut a long review short, if you like friday the 13th, and the hason films, then your going to love this film. It's pretty much the same as Jason, but that's not a bad thing, really enjoyed this 80's film, worth the rent.
