I finally rented this movie last night, and I must say, I was really disappointed. I am a huge fan of slasher films and all, but this one just deviates into silly by the numbers slasher after a promising 30 minutes. I was reminded a lot of the horrible Sorority House Massacre (names not withstanding) while watching HOSR, and they are basically the same film as far as the final 30 minutes are concerned. I did like how some of the kills were done, but the gore was pretty minute. I also liked the whole premise of the girls banding together swearing not to tell about their devilish deed, but this aspect really isn't followed through in the rest of the film. Another problem with the film was that the killer wasn't really given his big climactic chase, or any real background. You see him all for about 1 minute screen time total, and that just isn't enough for this kind of film. I know it worked in Black Christmas, but this film shows most of the murders, so you would expect to at least get a glimpse of the killer. And the ending, boooooo. Probably the worst and most cliched ending the film could have had...and it is all too abrupt as well. Again, there just wasn't enough pay off in the final battle to leave me satisfied. What about you guys? I know it is regarded as one of the classic early 80's slashers, so I am prepared to take a beating, what are your thoughts?!
