Finally this gets a physical release from the lovely folks over at Vinegar Syndrome! Watched this one twice on youtube. Never even had a dvd release smh.
Unmasked part 25 is a British slasher spoof from 1989. The film is about a serial killer named Jackson who goes on a killing spree at a party but when he gets to the final girl, who happens to be blind, he has a change of heart. She senses that he's there and introduces herself as Shelley. She doesn't seem to mind that he's a serial killer. Jackson and Shelley fall in love and he decides that he doesn't want to kill anymore. Problem is Friday the 13th is fast approaching causing Jackson to come to the realization that it's alot harder changing his ways than he thought it'd be.
This is one of the better slasher films to come out of the 80s imo. It has everything you need in a slasher film. There's blood, boobs, gore, humor, a twisted romance, good practical effects, and even a foretelling of impending doom by a random old dude. It boasts a nice body count as u get 5 kills in the first 15 mins. There's also a little knod to The Toxic Avenger by way of Jackson's disfigured face and his kinky blind girlfriend Shelley.
Of course the VinSyn blu ray is top notch. Hope this gem gets discovered by many more genre fans.
8.5 out of 10
