Editorial Reviews

An unrelenting killer stalks two beautiful freshman students after they're cast as the unwitting stars of a low-budget student slasher film and its deadly website. They soon find themselves trapped in a brutal "reality movie" where they must outwit a killer who loves publicity more than slashing. Can they save themselves from the ultimate splatter movie ending?

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected March 21, 2009
By marky77
Although this movie is low budget, this works very well for it as it has a sence of gritty realism (like that in the origonal Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and I thought that the charcters and events in the movie were believable.

A group of college students are working on a low-budget horror movie, using mainly actresses from the "Hottest Girls On Campus" website that has been set up. Unfortunatly at the same time there is a serial killer stalking the campus (dressed in the same costume as the killer in the movie being produced by the students) and using the website as a to-do list, killing off the girls featured on it one by one and removing their livers.

The movie is fairly suspenceful and I thought Amiee was a really likeable charcters, she was funny and was believabe as a real person (not just wooden and unrealistic like some slasher characters). The deaths werent very creative, most involving the girls being slashed in the back (hence the title) but were fairly gory.

The ending was good, too (although it involved a horrible castration-scene) and a twist at the end which I loved and thought was very clever.

Overal, very good for a very low budget movie that hardly anybody has heard of.

3.0 out of 5 stars Is what it is! November 10, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love a low grade horror movie. This one nailed my low-grade expectations. It looked like there was some severe technical difficulty with the film processing. (I saw that it was shot on 16 mm. If it was digital the color would have been corrected.) Outside of the technical flaw, this movie maintained the sense of fun that it was after. Any time a movie achieves, at least for the most part, of what it set out to achieve, I have to give the filmmaker some credit. My 3 star review of this movie is subject to the viewer forgetting about technical issues.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wickedly funny, and actually kind of suspenseful. March 30, 2009
Back Slash (Kevin Campbell, 2005)

Looking for a fun, witty modern slasher film that you probably missed when it first hit the screen (or the video shelf)? You have quite a few interesting choices, and one of those to which you give serious consideration should be Back Slash, which takes the meta feeling of so many post-Scream horror flicks and attaches it to the classic slasher formula, resulting in a surprisingly effective little movie that manages to laugh both at and with itself (the most recent example of a movie that has the same sort of feel I can come up with off the top of my head was the highly amusing Cruel Restaurant).

Kevin Campbell, previously responsible for the wonderfully-named Cheerleader Ninjas, directs this tale of a college filmmaker, Ledo Tepes (Steven Burge), who's making a slasher film as a class project. Or he would be, except that every time he casts a leading lady and posts her picture on the movie's website, she ends up dead. You've gotta love this guy; three minutes into the movie, when his first leading lady gets offed, he turns to the cameraman and says, "Dude. Film." You can tell where this is going, right? In any case, when Ledo casts the bubbleheaded freshman Amie Norris (Laura Bruner), he hopes to draw suspicion from her (yeah, he's that callous) by also posting the picture of the smartest girl on campus, Martha King (Gretchen Akers). Martha and Amie have to band together to figure out who's killing the coeds before either or both of them joins the roster.

This is a slick, fun little slasher movie, made by someone who knows the genre inside and out, appreciates it, and knows how to break its rules for maximum effect.
