This is a cheesy little slasher but it's actually kind of fun (especially as long as you are willing to adjust to the bad props and such). The plot is about a group of students who put on an all night horrorathon in a theater. The film students putting it on find an old reel from a murderer who of course killed his family on stage some years before and they decide to play his film (wise choice). Then once they are trapped in the theatre someone is bumping them off...could it be the murderer is back from revenge or is something else sinister going on? It's definitely not a deep or amazing film but seriously for a cheaply made slasher you could do much worse.
