The Burning

Just take a little off around the ears.

Of course, as often happens in ’80s slashers, the mad killer haunting the summer camp invariably chops off quite a bit more, leaving most of the cast to bleed out.

And sure, that’s probably not too nice of Cropsy to do, but the former caretaker was brutally scarred years earlier after a practical joke by campers went wrong.

So, he has his reasons…

This slasher is notable for screen debuts by Holly Hunter, Jason Alexander, and Fisher Stevens, but it’s the gross-out effects by gore maestro Tom Savini which linger the longest.
