When hero detective Christopher George says, "The sonofabitch is out there laughing at us," the murderer may not be the only one he's referring to. This Texas Chainsaw Massacre rip-off—saw-off might be more like it—is ridiculous. A madman is terrorizing a New England college campus by slicing up coeds with a chainsaw and then attempting to create the perfect woman using his victims' body parts—it's kind of a Bride of Frankenstein Meets Black & Decker. The direction is by someone identified only as "J. Simon" in the credits. You wouldn't want to take the blame for this, either. (No rating. No one under 17 admitted)
