Just Before Dawn- good backwoods/slasher/thriller

Post by Rich » Thu Oct 27, 2005 4:20 am

Watched this last night and I have to give it props, it really surprised me. Beautiful scenery and backdrop, big fat redneck inbred killers and a good score somewhat similiar to Friday The 13th but it works. The ending was a bit weird for me with the chicky boo and her hand and a guys throat and....well you know, somewhat offbeat for what was playing out to be a fairly goreless (not completely, little bit of good knife grue but tame as a whole) thriller. I also loved the transformation of Warren's girlfriend from an uptight outdoors woman to a city slicker slut, gotta love those high riding shorts, mmmMMMmmm b-o-y. Jeff Lieberman did a good job with Squirm as well, another childhood favourite of mine and actor George Kennedy is in here as well as a forest ranger, pretty small role actually. Check this out, its pretty good.

Yeap, this is one of my favorite 80's slasher flicks. I waited a long time for this one to arrive on DVD and was surprised it getting special treatment! Jeff Leibermen(sp) is a fun director, he did such classics as "squirm", "blue sunshine" and the recent "satan's little history" which I highly reccomend.

Glad you bought it up..
