REVIEWS

Review by GT (posted on 3-Jun-2007)

This was meant as a parody of scary movies. It was released in 1983 and I saw it in 1984 on the Military Base Cinema Circuit. Today the material is a bit dated but very funny for its time. For years I thought that the title was "The Pumpkin Prom Masacre" but that is only the plot line. It is the Prom and the 13th anniverary of the Pumpkin Prom Masacre. There a lot of good one-liner jokes along with joke names and references. One of the funiest scenes is when Mary Graves is running from the Murdered - whos prefered weapon is a riding lawn mower. It is very Friday the 13th (they can outrun the rideing mower ?!), although at the time - I thought that the riding-mower as a weapon was a slap at "Death Race 2000" (David Caradine 1976 = cars as weapons) In Greydon fashon there is a lot of slapstick and sexual humor. I liked it when I saw it in '84 and would love to have it in my DVD collection.
