 While most slasher films of the 1980's were happy enough to go by the numbers and just give us the standard maniac-in-the-woods-kills-stupid-teens formula over and over again this little flick by the great director Don Jones(SCHOOLGIRLS IN CHAINS and THE LOVE BUTCHER) went one crazy step further and decided to throw a stupid ghost story right in the middle of their perfectly fine killer on the loose tale.  You also get some cannibalism and a scene where a fellow inadvertently ends up eating his wife.  While this might not be the bloodiest, goriest or even all that scary horror flick out there, and it was obviously made on a pretty low budget, I do give it extra credit for at least trying something different and melding two genres together even if it doesn't always make much sense.  Like for one thing I'm not sure if the ghosts are supposed to be helping our campers survive or helping them get offed one by one since they seem to be playing both sides of the fence(at least up until the thrilling conclusion).  Check it out anyway if you dig slashers and want to see one that's slightly off the expected track.
