30 Days of Horror: Day 3

"Day 03 - Your favorite slasher."

People are probably going to expect me to say "Friday the 13th" but I figure that'd be a cop out answer. So instead I'm gonna go with "The Burning".

"The Burning" is one of many "Friday the 13th" rip offs that appeared. The movie is about a camp caretaker named Cropsey who gets horribly burnt due to a practical joke gone wrong. Five years later, he's released from the hospital and he goes back to the camp to seek REVENGE!! MU HAHAHAHAHA!!

This movie stars a young Jason "George From Seinfeld" Alexander, which is to say he's roughly 30 years old, playing a teenager. There's another recognizable face in the movie but you might not know the name: Fisher Stevens. He's probably most famous for being the "foreign" guy in "Short Circuit".

Anyway, "The Burning" is a bit slow but when it gets going, it's going. There's awesome nudity and there's probably the greatest kill scene ever where Cropsey kills a raft full of kids. It's awesome. It's on DVD now so I say check it out.

I'll always remember Fischer Stevens from the Mario Bros. movie.

He was also on "Early Edition" as Gary's best friend in the early season.
