Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Wheeler
Now this is more like it -- a slasher flick featuring a leather-clad biker whose modified chopper comes complete with an electric chair accessory to fry those pesky, over-sexed Spring Break teenagers! This little-seen Umberto Lenzi-lensed effort (under the pseudonym Harry Kirkpatrick) plays most of the action by the book, with cardboard characters routinely partying, then dying, all for the sake of exploitation-style killing. So are the deaths any good? Oh yeah! Italian directors barely ever skimp out on the effects, and this sucker is no different. Sure, the fried heads that burst into flames look plenty goofy, but that's part of the fun. Of course, this also being a Spring Break flick, there's plenty of outrageous and drunken hijinks littering the background of most of the shots and, hey, a little bit of John Saxon in the cast goes a long way. With amazingly bad acting from the lead idiot (Nicolas de Toth -- now a tried and true Hollywood editor) and a hot soundtrack to keep things rolling, there's always something going on to keep a gore-loving kitsch fan amused. It might not be high art and it surely isn't a classic, but there's a sort of comfort in watching these by-the-book '80s slashers -- and the fact that the killer literally has an electric chair on the back of his hog surely does not hurt! Recommended for cheeseball-loving genre enthusiasts everywhere.
