Top Customer Reviews
Young Billy (Peter Billingsley) is sad that his parents are divorced (Edward Herrmann and Catherine Hicks). Billy rather spin time with his father than his mother. Especially his mother going back to Arizona for an vacation, bringing his son and Billy has to meet his mother's new boyfriend (Paul Le Mat). The vacation goes well, although Billy has a tough time warming up to his mother's new boyfriend. When Billy goes to an RV that is empty in a old mining place. He finds an unusual frog pendant on the floor on the RV. But when his mother and her boyfriend stops at a resturant to eat. A mysterious waiter (Stephen McHattie) recognized the frog pendant on Billy's hand. Now this waiter is slowly stalking the family and especially Billy.
Directed by Dick Richards ("Farewell, My Lovely", "March or Die") made an better than expected little thriller. It is made watchable, thanks to a bright performance by Billingsley. Who is a natural actor, who is just as he good was he was in "Bob Clark's A Christmas Story". McHattie is also quite good as the calmest psychopath, you will ever see on a movie. The movie didn't really have an wide release, when it came out in 1982. But the movie has an loyal cult following over the years.
DVD has an fine anamorphic Widescreen (1.85:1) transfer and an good digitally remastered Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround Sound. DVD also includes an running commentary track by the director, which it is quite informative. If you enjoy the movie. DVD also includes the original theatrical trailer, a t.v. shot and trailers from other films. It is a fine thriller, i was expecting the movie to be more of a slasher movie at first. But it is well made and quite decent. Worth a look. Grade:B+ for the movie. Grade:A- for the picture quality. Grade:B+ for the sound quality.

The plot is very believable and the acting is above par with actors such as Paul Le Mat'The Burning Bed',Catherine Hicks' Childs Play',Peter Billingsley 'A Christmas story' and Stephen McHattie who is perfect as the slasher.
A mother and son go to Death Valley with The mother's new boyfriend hoping that the son and her new Beau will make nice with each other. The boy is very inquisitive and nosy resulting in him getting too close for comfort to a Serial killer who's very handy with a switchblade.
It becomes a cat and Mouse game between the two all the while he is trying to get the adults to believe him.It isn't a gore fest the kills are good,effective and the action and suspense are superb.There is a little some comic relief in the form of an obese babysitter who manages to wrangle all the kids candy and food away from him,her question of the night "Are You Going To Eat That?" am delighted that this Gem is now on not just DVD but Blu Ray.
it's a 5 Star film.
I think it's original in the fact that the killer's primary target is a child. However, this is NOT a stupid kid...he's intelligent!
The acting is fine and the plot keeps you interested throughout! It's good for what it is! Check it out!
