The film deals with a group of kids who play a game called Killer in an old abandoned house. The game is a variation on hide and seek. Well, one kid wants to join this group up and play along with them. She sneeks into the house and places herself into the center of the action. Unfortunately for her, these kids don't play well with others and gang up on her resulting in her falling through a window to her death. Skip to years later as this group of kids are now full fledged teens about to attend their senior prom. However, a killer lurks in the shadows ready for revenge for what happened all those years earlier.
This was one of my favorite slashers of all time back when I viewed it as a kid and still remains so to this day. As the film Scream told us, this is the film that introduced the rules to the slasher genre. It also introduced Jamie Lee Curtis's disco dancing skills! I have to say she sure knows how to move it and looks like she is giving her all her to put on a good show. What more could you want- disco dancing from a major league scream queen, creepy kids who cause other kids to fall to their death, and all the rules of the slasher genre fully realized? If that wasn't enough, make sure to stay through with this untill the ending. The identity of the killer is obvious, but the way it is presented, it sure does pack an emotional wallop.
