Back of Box:
On a moonlit evening many years ago, a group of young campers played a trick on Cropsy, the camp caretaker.  The trick backfired, and Cropsy became a horribly disfigured maniac, a mutilated killer with a thirst for revenge.
THE BURNING is the suspenseful, terrifying account of the demented Cropsy's return to summer camp, and of the trail of blood he leaves in the dark woods.  His sinister presence shadows the sunny, sexy fun of the campers, and Cropsy stalks his victims, ruthlessly pursuing his macabre revenge.
Great performances by Jason Alexander (Seinfeld)  and Holly Hunter (O' Brother Where art Thou), frightening special effects by Tom Savini, and the spectre of crazed killer combine for a horror feature that's a spectacle of shocks.

Personal History

  • This is actually the second DVD-R copy I've gotten of this film.  The first one was cut and had Japanese subtitles through the whole film.
  • Saw the "raft" scene (Uncut) years before I actually saw the whole film.
