The Burning (1981) has a more believable story, better acting, is more suspenseful AND has better effects (Tom Savini). Plus, we get George Costanza. This hidden gem is more than worth checking out, especially during the Halloween season. I enjoyed this film to the point where I could just watch it without any of the kills, just being in that 1980s camp setting. While there is a low body count, the kills themselves come at completely unexpected times, something that Friday the 13th didn't start doing until the FOURTH movie. This was also one of the first banned movies in the UK.

Judging by the recent high praises this film has received from the fans, I was expecting some forgotten, neglected masterwork of horror but in reality, this is a terribly messy film from a technical standpoint and there is no denying there are better efforts in the genre for my tastes. It follows the typical formula, with several young imbeciles being slaughtered in graphic ways and the occasional gratuitous nudity is thrown in just because … it’s an early 80’s slasher flick. The cast is interesting as it has some well known actors in their first roles – Jason Alexander (with hair), Holly Hunter (blink and you might miss her) and Fisher Stevens.

The story deals with a vicious prank that goes horribly wrong and its victim, a camp caretaker named Cropsy, is horribly burned to the point of disfigurement. Years later, after unsuccessful skin grafts and surgeries, Cropsy, who is now filled with rage and vengeance and armed with sharp garden sheers, is released from the hospital and decides to unleash his fury on a group of clue-less councilors and the obnoxious, unsuspecting teens at a nearby summer camp.

The film is very similar to “Friday the 13th” in tone and the gore effects were done by the legendary Tom Savini. Although I am a fan of Savini and applaud his work in other films such as “The Prowler”, “Day of the Dead” and “Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter”, I found his work here very uneven. At times, he delivered the goods but there are moments when the gore effects fail miserably.
