Burning, The
(1981)
Reviewed by Justin Kosch
Rating: 9 Beans

lright, I would like to give a little history lesson before my review. A lot of stars of today have gotten their start in the slasher genre. Tom Hanks-He Knows You're Alone, Daphne Zuniga-The Dorm That Dripped Blood, Vanna White-some cheap slasher movie that I forgot the name of, and Two stars in this one-Holly Hunter(Yes, Broadcast News Holly Hunter) and Jason Alexander of Seinfeld. As a punishment of being in these films, they are always terrible. This one is pretty bad.
It's the usual story in this one. Kids play a trick on the caretaker of Camp Blackfoot(or was it Stonewall?), and he ends up being deformed. I knew the movie would be terrible from here on. The trick was just a Skull Candle! I'd just blow it out and go back to bed! But he goes overdramatic and ends up setting himself on fire.
Five years later, a whole new bunch of sex-crazed teenagers come to the camp across the lake. All they talk about and do is having sex. But they do all of the no-nos of camping and end up getting killed.
This film showcases the most(and worst use of) nudity I have seen since Twisted Nightmare. Almost everybody shows some body part of their body(Yep. That's Jason Alexander mooning the camera.). And we almost see TWO male organs(YUCK!!!!). It's disgusting after a while, and I was so easily tempted to turn the video off. But I somehow stayed through it.
It had a disappointing ending. More than half of the people survived(Including Jason Alexander), and the killer just looked like an alien. Also disappointing was that I didn't find Holly Hunter anywhere. So many people looked like her that I didn't know which one she was(I think she was the one in the green shirt.).
I recommend you don't see it, unless it's at the video store for only 25 cents, and that would be a gip.
