Body Count is your typical late 80's Italian horror (slasher) trying so hard to be American. You have your obnoxious teen actors who all look like fake Americans doing all sorts of silly, stupid and unlogical things. Same goes for the lines they speak, (partly) cheesy dubbed dialogues that will either make you do this :eek2: that :hum: or that :lol: Anyhoo, Plot: A few teens decide to go camping but yow, the camp site is haunted by some freaky Indian killing them off one by one. Director Ruggero Deodato was obviously inspired by the F13th flicks and there's actually a little decent slasher hidden underneath this cheesy cheesefest. The killings are well executed, there's some (brief) gore and blood splattering, one halfway decent jump scare and a few nicely shot scenes of (female) victims tumbling through the forest. The rest is a mix of swiss 'n' goofs. For example there's one scene showing a long haired blond dude falling from a mountain, and as he bounces down the hill you can clearly see (close up!) it's a stuntman with short dark hair. The opening has a "15 years later" sequence and when they later recall the incident they say it was "12 years" ago ... but hey, this all adds up to the silly fun and charm of Body Count. Other stuff to expect: The immortal David Hess barking his lines and having one very dramatic (bad) scene with his wife (Mimsy Farmer) because she's in love with Charles Napier (playing the Sheriff who has a "thang" for teddybears I think). Great WTF? moment: chick on the run from the killer hides in an abandonend bathhouse. First thing she does is taking off her sweater. Nothing wrong with that I suppose (it's a bathhouse after all) but why take off your sweater when your stalked by a crazy killer? Boobies: lots of 'em. Chicks: one does Aerobic to horrible muzak, another has a (badly dubbed) "southern" accent Fat geeky guy: he's in this for comic relief but the stuff he does is really not that funny. He has a serious moment though, admitting he's a big fan of Iron Maiden which is very hard to believe. e-m-s (Germany) released this on DVD (PAL/Code 2). Presented in fool screen, Body Count has an ok transfer. Image appears to be sharp, night scenes can be very dark indeed though. There's some grain and dirt but nothing too distracting. Audio: English 2.0 mono does the job. Extras: Deodato bio and trailers for other e-m-s movies.
