Rebecca Balding ("The Boogens") is that pretty coed, the perky Scotty. Peril? Oh yes. When this film came out, just after "Halloween" began the cavalcade of slasher films, both Siskel and Ebert were incensed at Scotty's plight, as another woman was shown stalked, helpless, and at the mercy of some psycho.

Even worse, unless a brainless hunk can save her, poor Scotty will assume room temperature. Let us take a look at 1979's "The Silent Scream."
