Curtains (1983)

Being home in Pennsylvania, I decided to grab a couple more low-budget movie collections to help pass time as I continue to build the man cave. Today’s entry came from the Midnight Horror Collection: Bloody Slashers, it is the 1983 often overlooked slasher Curtains.

Plot/ Six young actresses auditioning for a movie role at a remote mansion are targeted by a mysterious masked murderer.

Let me start by saying that this is one entertaining slasher film and one that often goes unnoticed in the grand scheme of the slasher genre. The acting is solid, the story enjoyable and there are some unpredictable moments that truly pull you in. Sure, it has all of the typical elements, like the nudity and a masked killer (which is creepy), but it seems to come together a lot better than some others from the era. Yes, there are definitely some noticeable production and editing flaws, but to me, those were easily overlooked. In the end, this film deserves to be remembered and adds a tremendous amount of value to a low-budget collection like this one.
