Remember watching this as a kid and being scared witless. I'm not convinced it will have aged very well though. Heat added for good price.

Same. I think it got banned at one point.
I quite liked this one. Very similar to the first Friday the thirteenth in story, style and pacing and has aged about the same. Interesting in that most of the action takes place in daylight, including the infamous 'raft massacre' sequence. You can Google gifs of this sequence if that's all you are interested in.

The first role for Seinfeld actor Jason Alexander as well as an early role for Holly Hunter. Score by Rick Wakeman
Night of the Comet

The British cinema release of The Burning was severely cut as well by the BBFC, receiving an X-certificate on September 23, 1981, with cuts to the scissor murder of the prostitute and some gore during the raft attack. When the film was accidentally released uncut on video in the United Kingdom by Thorn EMI, the tape was liable for seizure and prosecution under the Obscene Publications Act. Thorn-EMI had unwittingly released a "video nasty", a term used to coin films judged as obscene and too violent for home rental. They tried to rectify matters by reissuing a BBFC-approved version. The original uncut Thorn-EMI release is worth a great deal of money today. In 1992, the United Kingdom video re-release suffered additional cuts to the raft attack, plus cuts to the killing of Karen. It was finally released fully uncut in 2002.[7]

Still got the original of this on betamax
Terrible movie with really cheap special effects
Pinned to a tree with a pair of garden shears is a nice touch though. Remember sfx were still in their infancy when this came out (from memory about the same time as the first friday the 13th & haloween).
