Jason Fry (Larry Baumer), a dangerous serialkiller (and former priest)
using the bible as the root for his killikngs, is sentenced to life in a
mental institution ... and escapes afterr a few hours, killing his
psychiatrist (Robert J. Huntley) by stabbing him with candy cane. Now Dr.
Landers (Bradley Creanzo) knows what a threat Fry poses to society, but
the local sheriff tries to downplay the threat - causing many of the
relatives of Fry's previous killing spree to be killed, just because he
figures them responsible for his being arrested. A mailman and a Jehova's
witness have to die as well, though. It seemingly takes the sheriff
forever to take Dr. Landers seriously, put two and two together and find
out who the final victim might be, Rebecca (Taylor Raftree) - but once the
sheriff and Landers have finally joined forces, Fry is already in
Rebecca's house ...
The Bible Slasher: The Holy Terror
has set out to bring back the look and feel of 1980's genre cinema - and
has succeeded, too - and not because of all the hairdos and props and
costumes seem totally authentic, but because the film approaches
yesteryear's filmmaking without a hint of irony: So it's all here, the
overly formulaic plot, the predilection for "creative" killings,
the easily distinguishable good and bad guys, symplified psychology,
stilted dialogues and poignant oneliners, macho characters all around, the
slightly over-acting misunderstood hero and the ham villain, a
Carpenter-esque synth-score, 80s-style pop music, randomly
injected music videos - but also loads of gore, shocks and suspense.
guess whether or not you will like this movie depends on whether or not
you like the slashers of old, maybe even whether or not you like the
fashion of old - but if you do, chances are you'll love this one!
