Movie Rating: 4 out of 5
Nothing really beats a cheesy 80s b-rated horror movie and this one is no exception. Yeah, the acting isn’t the best, the special effects are a little dated but man I find these entertaining. The one thing that sticks out the most is the way everyone dresses. Their clothes are horrible but at the same time, everyone looks so comfortable in what they are wearing. I grew up in the 70s/80s/90s and don’t remember dressing that bad.
This movie has the typical 80s horror plot though, someone escapes from a mental asylum to seek revenge on someone that has done them wrong. So if you have Amazon Prime give this one a chance, it’s not going to cost you anything but some of your time.
