The Burning (1981)

The BurningDirector: Tony Maylam

Writers: Peter Lawrence and Bob Weinstein

(Story by Harvey Weinstein & Tony Maylam & Brad Grey)

Had no idea this was the beginning of the Weinstein Brothers careers when I started watching. Also the first credits of Brad Grey, Holly Hunter and Jason Alexander and Fisher Stevens’s first movie.

Sleazy slasher movie following in the footsteps of other low budget horror movies at the time like Halloween and Friday the 13th. Good setup, slow in the middle and then some pretty solid gore/kill scenes in the last act. The raft scene rules. Worth a watch if you are into this sort of junk.
