            Billy, a young boy whom his mother as a child abused, while his mother was cheating on Billy’s father, she eventually kills his father and kept Billy locked in the attic, while she was with her lover and starting a new family. Billy’s mother became pregnant and treated her with love, which Billy had never experienced with his mother; Billy came out of the attic after years and viciously murdered his mother and her lover. Present day, a group of eight sorority sisters, who now live in Billy’s childhood home, find themselves harassed by threatening and intimidating phone-calls during Christmas Break and as one of the girls goes missing, the girls begin being murdered one by one.

Technically this film wasn’t anything special but it was nicely done and the flashbacks went very well with the flow of the story. The death scenes were filmed very nicely as well, some very sick and twisted things going on in this movie. 

Receiving a whopping two skipped beats on the Roger Moore movie scale this was a remake that had guts and a lot of balls (eye-balls that is).  I personally enjoyed this film maybe cause I only paid six dollars and it was a double feature but nonetheless I still liked watching it.  I can see it going into the collection with the original when that day comes.
