This is another 80's VHS nostalgia movie that I had to see on DVD. Scorpion's pimping these horror movies out with class, and I respect them for it. The movie itself is really a ghost story with a few slasher-type kills, but the kills aren't gory. The real draw to the film is Wings Hauser and his connection with the house he's fixing. The job must be done, and nobody's getting in this carpenter's way.
That said, it's not the greatest movie. It's boring about sixty percent of the time. The special effects are cheap. This is all for the camp value of Wing Hauser's performance. I'd say if you're a collector, buy it, if you're curious but not a hardcore old school horror fan, rent this before buying.
For a slasher, this has a ghost story, a romance sub-plot, and of course, a crash course in home building. Good, but not great. Fun, but not a knee-slapper. This movie gets a big "It's just okay."
