A teen sleepover is invaded by a drill-wielding escaped lunatic. Straightforward slasher pic that delivers in terms of softcore female nudity and sheer number of kills. A couple of quirky moments, a nice grossout gag, and a couple of satiric elements (the film was scripted as a genre spoof, though is played largely straight) help matters briskly along. Sequels followed.
