Severin Films gets ABSURD (Review)

Joe D'Amato and George Eastman take on the slasher genre an ABSURD rip-off of HALLOWEEN in which a small town is terrorized by a mad killer whose path of carnage eventually settles on a house in the countryside where a nurse, a babysitter, a bratty little boy, and a paraplegic girl have been left alone for the night.  George Eastman, Annie Belle, and Edmund Purdom star.
