"The Burning" is an excellent slasher film that can at times be like all other slashers, but is mostly different from them all. It's about Camp Blackfoot, a camp haunted by the horrible past, when a bunch of campers accidentally engulfed their caretaker, Cropsy, in flames, sending him to 5 years in intense treatment at a hospital. Well 5 years is up, and Cropsy is out...for revenge that is! After getting rid of a prostitute, he heads back to Camp Blackfoot with a pair of garden shears, ready for some carnage. Cannon Fodder include: Jason Alexander, Larry Joshua, Leah Ayres, Brian Backer, Holly Hunter, Carrick Glenn, and Brian Matthews. Who will make it out of...The Burning!
