This week, a look at the exemplary summer camp slasher, The Burning.

The horror is based on a New York state urban legend, Cropsey.

Legendary effects guru Tom Savini (Maniac/Dawn of the Dead) is the man behind the awesome effects here.

For a slasher, there’s a lot of investment in the characters in The Burning…and why not? We’ve got the likes of Holly Hunter, Fisher Stevens, and yes…George Costanza himself, a hirsute Jason Alexander.

Do yourself a favor and watch this.
