Worst Cover Copy

"By Sword, by Pick, by Axe, Bye-Bye"
Cheesy tagline: "By sword / By pick / By axe / Bye Bye" - also: "Their horrifying vacation was no day at the beach!"

"This spine-tingling chiller is the harrowing tale of five high-school students whose dream vacation of a fun-filled holiday at the beach becomes a nightmare when they are stalked by THE MUTILATOR."

"Ed, a likeable high school student, busily discusses vacation plans with his friends when he receives a message from his father asking that he close up the summer house at the beach. While his friends feel that it's the perfect opportunity for a vacation, Ed is uneasy about the request, as his father has never quite forgiven him for the accidental shooting of his mother."

Hmm ... who do you think the Mutilator will turn out to be? Yep, you're right.

"When the group arrives at the summer house they discover Ed's father's collection of bizarre weapons. To add to their anxieties there is the ever-present feeling that they are being watched. Suddenly, Ed's house guests begin to meet bizarre deaths, each one more grisly than the next, but THE MUTILATOR is saving best for last ... the best for Ed."

And the worst for those of us unlucky enough to watch this all the way through.
