Rated R - Running time: 1:40 - Released 10/17/97

Author's Note: This is one of the ten movie reviews I wrote for the October 30, 1997 issue of The Republican, the first week my reviews were ever published there. Because of space and time requirements, these ten reviews had to be especially brief, some even shorter than this Author's Note. Someday I will re-view them and re-review them so as to provide a more in-depth commentary, but for now you'll just have to live with the short version. Sorry. --JRM
Cool soundtrack. Full of heavy metal covers of great oldies like Seals & Crofts' "Jasmine" and the Beatles' "Hey Bulldog." Oh, the movie? Well, it's the Gorton's Fisherman and he's plenty ticked. A classic teenage slasher film, written by teenagers, directed by teenagers, acted by teenagers. Loosely based on the classic ghost story about the man with a hook. Stupid, but if you're 14 you may love it. *
