SLASHER MONTH: Shallow Grave (1987)

Four college coeds are on their way to Florida for vacation and pass through a small Georgia town where one of their number watches a couple have sex in the woods, argue and then the man kills the woman. It just so happens that he’s the town’s sherriff, which means that they’re trapped in the town overnight and perhaps headed to an early demise.

This is the kind of movie that starts like a comedy and progressively gets meaner, nastier and much sleazier as time goes on and any hope of a happy ending starts running out.

Director Richard Styles has going to be the film’s producer and never intended to actually be directing, but he did and turned out something unique in the slasher genre; the killer shows signs of remorse, but he knows that if he wants to keep his position in town, everyone in his way must die.

You can get this from Vinegar Syndrome.
