 Fairly typical but still enjoyable slasher flick. This one is notable for having Sam Raimi, his brother Ted and Bruce Campbell of EVIL DEAD fame appear in the movie in small parts. That's all fine and good but I was more excited to see Emil "Hold hands you love birds" Sitka from The Three Stooges doing his famous line and Alvy Moore from GREEN ACRES as a bumbling cop. This is the 80's so of course it's full of stupid humor, inane dialogue and cardboard characters that get sliced up in various ways. The standout is a meat slicer through a head but you also get a decapitated head used as a weapon, a body hung on a meat-hook, eye violence and many other gory bits.
 This was originally released on video, after a very small theatrical run, under the way more memorable title of NIGHT CREW: THE FINAL CHECKOUT in an R-rated version with a bunch of the gorier elements missing, then later on released in an "unrated director's cut" on DVD and there's even an unofficial work-print version that I own that's about 5 minutes longer than that.


Extra bloody Japanese VHS!:
