Lesser known 80's slasher that's actually a lot of fun.  College freshman Kelly has been having nightmares about a burning man for years.  What can it be?  Her imagination?  A repressed memory?  Freddy Krueger?  Well, her professor wants to find out so he's putting her through a series of tests.  At the same time Kelly is pledging to get into a fraternity and of course that means pranks, parties and initiations.  One of the initiations is to sneak into a large shopping mall and get the security guards clothes by whatever means necessary.  Sounds fun and it would be too if there wasn't a meddling psychopath going around stabbing people to death.  What a party pooper!

When I sat down to watch this film I didn't know anything about it, so not only was I shocked to see Vera Miles and Clu Gulager on the opening credits but also because I actually enjoyed the film and even watched it twice.  Interesting story that's strong throughout the entire film, good acting, passable special effects, little blood, zero gore, best looking non-main chick got naked twice, dream sequence, frat costume paaar-tay, 80's as fuck fashions, awesome 80's hair.  It's not scary in the least, but it's still a fun film.  Recommended for 80's slasher fans.
