Oh it starts out fabulously...I thought I was in for a real cheap treat. Jr. decides to clean Daddy's gun collection for his birthday (you can see where this is going right) and he accidentally shoots and kills Mommy. Daddy comes home and lets just say he isn't the happiest. Flash forward to Jr. and his Friends as teenagers (all of which are horribly wooden and dull actors) as Daddy requested they go out and clean his beach house. It takes forever for things to happen, there are tons of cheesy montages and possibly one of the worst theme songs I've heard yet (it doesn't even have a pattern). It's extremely cliche down to the point where they even borrow some music from the movie Jaws. It's very poorly shot (lit with lamps me thinks) and it's too dark to see much of the time. Daddy's decoration for the cottage was hilarious and yes it did have a few funny things happen and a few decent deaths. It was just way too boring most of the time to be a really good slasher but it did have some gore!
