Unlike John Carpenter's "Halloween" two years earlier, which kept much of its violence suggested rather than graphic, this 1980 slasher flick really let it rip with its depiction of the gory fates handed out to a group of sexually adventurous young counselors at a summer camp where a young man drowned years earlier. Kevin Bacon is among the unlucky victims, while Betsy Palmer — best known as a daytime TV and stage musical performer at the time — is cast against type, to put it mildly. A 2009 remake immediately follows on BBC America.
