He was menacing at times...which made the character believable as he began to snap. Kudos also go to the wonderful outdoor scenes and the direction. The woman who plays "Sister Margaret" is a good supporting player and the child actors who portray young "Billy" and "Ricky" were all good too. Some great death scenes also highlight the movie. A solid and disturbing flick!!
one of the better slashers from the early to mid 80's.
