Mediocre 80's slasher film - Pieces review by LC

Spoiler Alert

At times this has the feel of a Dario Argento movie, with a black gloved killer stalking a university campus, a funky musical score, a whodunit plot and plenty of dubious dialogue dubbing. Unfortunately however, the script lacks any real twists when it comes to unmasking the murderer, and the gore scenes are not particularly convincing. There is a certain goofy charm in how ridiculous it all is - this is a film in which the killer sneaks around campus with a bright yellow chainsaw, and the final scene is so insane it has to been seen to be believed. Don't take it seriously and there is some cheesy fun to be had, but there's not enough quality here in any department to warrant a repeat viewing.
