Some Guy Who Kills People
Everyone wants revenge on the assholes from high school, especially Kevin Boyd (Kevin Corrigan). When he's released after 11 years in the mental institution they put him in, the bad guys start to die. But is it really him, or is something else going on? Producer John Landis's low budget horror/comedy has fun teasing us while the victims pile up. But as slick as the effects are, the murders aren't really the point.
An uncertain Ken gradually re-engages with his stolen life; meeting a cute daughter he never knew and dealing with his exhausted, bitter mother (a delicious Karen Black). Meanwhile, the bumbling town Sheriff (Barry Bostwick) threatens to steal the show from them as he slowly closes in on the murderer. It's too light on the body count to really call itself a slasher, but it has a heart and some fine performances that help make this a quirky little gem that's a cut above the rest.
