Madman Movie Review






Madman is a 1982 horror movie directed by Joe Giannone and starring Gaylen Ross and Paul Ehlers.

The movie begins with a group of young people sitting around a campfire. The camp counsellors are telling ghost stories. One of them, Max, tells a story about a madman called Madman Marz(Ehlers) who killed his family. He was a farmer, but he was evil. The locals found out what he had done and hung him from a tree. His body disappeared and the bodies of his dead family. If you say his name, he will come. They say his name, thinking its a joke. The problem is that Madman Marz IS around the woods and he is looking for fresh meat because they have called him. He follows the kids around as they are camping. He starts to kill them.


One of the counsellors Betsy(Ross) sees someone running in the woods. The kids are dropping like flies as Marz slashes his way through them. Betsy sees the killer and he comes after her. She gets a shotgun and she hides. She gets someone else to take the kids away from the camp and there is a face off between her and Marz. He gets her and impales her. She stabs him,but he doesn't die. He just heads off into the woods. One of the counsellors is left alive and he meets Max and tells him that the legend of Madman Marz is real.


This was a good slasher. It was good fun and I am amazed that it took me so long to watch this!
I liked the story and there were some good kills in it. It is pretty standard slasher fare,but it is done well. I found it enjoyable and I had a good time watching this. I recommend it to slasher fans. I will give it a 6/10.

Reminds me very much of F13, Sleepaway Camp, etc. I believe I saw this one too, back in the day. Pretty decent fare. Good review, Jigs.
