The Legacy Entertainment (VHS generation loss affected) 1.33:1 ratio edition DVD is otherwise uncut (if not widescreen), unlike the Starz/Anchor Bay (cleanly remastered) 1.85:1 ratio edition DVD of which most customers purchase.
This is classic low-budget horror with the most memorable ending of any such film in its genre, whether you care for it or not. Instead of elaborating on my opinion of the film, I thought some would be interested in knowing what makes the Legacy Entertainment edition DVD uncut.
In the Anchor Bay (abbreviated as AB) edition, five scenes are missing. Those scenes can be found in the Legacy Entertainment (abbreviated as LE) edition. The total cut is only 23 seconds, but they are interesting if not odd omissions. The cuts are as follows:
1. The 'skinny dipping' scene where the boys are shown running and jumping in to the water is cut by seven (7) seconds. The uncut LE version shows them naked from behind as they were running.
2. The first death scene of the boy found under the overturned boat is cut by six (6) seconds. The AB version of this scene has two (2) shots of the boy with the snake, while the LE version has four (4) shots of the boy.Read more ›
After surviving a horrific accident 8 years prior Angela is forced to live with her crazy Aunt Martha and cousin Ricki. Ricki and Angela are persuaded by Angelas aunt to go on a vacation at camp Arawak. Angela is a very quiet girl that makes all of the other teenagers at the camp uncomfortable, which in return makes her the object of everyones taunting. Ricki tries to stick up for his cousin, but it seems he is always too late to do anything helpful. After a few people end up dying the individuals at Camp Arawak are all suspects and victims at the same time.
Never did the film become dull nor was it over the top exciting edge of your seat thrills. The film is not overly gory, but does not take away from the greatness. There is some descent acting, and if you are familiar with slasher movies you will understand the rareness of good acting in that genre. I know there are a lot of other reviewers that have raved about the very twisted ending, I agree with all of them. I will admit that the finale is one of the very top finales in a horror movie ever. It had me sleeping with my lights on that evening, and like I stated in a another review, I am a very hard person to scare. The last image of this cinematic adventure will be forever implanted in my brain. If you go into this film blind you will be nothing less of blown away, just by the ending alone.
