While trying to understand a frightening reoccurring nightmare, a pledge is coaxed into breaking into her father's department store by her sorority sisters, where a deranged killer targets the girls and their boyfriends.
These young ladies are the biggest losers of them all. I mean, who in the hell wants to hang out in a large department store/mall after closing all night long? Are they thieves or something? Cause that would make sense. These girls are just dull with no imagination. Well these girls are sorority members messing with their pledges. That was all these dumb girls could think of was scare these girls in a department store at night. They are pretty stupid. These are college girls.
The deaths in this movie were pretty mediocre. They are not the best, but they are pretty standard for real killer horror movies for the 80's. They were all about the same. The gore factor was pretty low. Like I said, the killings were not that unique, so the blood and gore factor for the movie was not high at all. It was pretty generic.
It is not a bad movie for the 80's slasher genre. Just another killer movie from the 80's filled with teenagers ready for killing. Watch it. Enjoy.
