The Burning is one of my favorite slasher films, and if someone wants to rip it off....great! This is preferable than ripping off "Ordinary People" or "Silkwood." In 1989 the Aussies produced a straight to VHS effort called "Houseboat Horror" with plot elements straight out of The Burning and kills straight out of the "Friday the 13th" films. Not entirely original, but still satisfying. Death by spear-gun, a horribly burned maniac, and lots of great looking victims grace our feature today.
