We kinda like this one.

Considering it to be one of the earlier slasher efforts which also tries to incorporate some Omen-esque elements into its storyline, it's actually pretty okay.

The story: a group of slightly offbeat folks are tricked into attending a faked high school reunion, only to find that a psycho slasher is stalking the halls of the abandoned school.

This pre-Prom Night attempt is surprisingly well-crafted, considering the low budget, simple acting, and okay special effects.

The proselytizing killer precedes each execution with an eloquent moral detailing the soon-to-be-victim's sins. Clown masks, high school theatres, a flame thrower....all make this a fairly fun watch.

Also titled The Redeemer.
