Madman (1982) - Joe Giannone

I really liked Madman even though it is just a repackaged Friday the 13th. The movie does away with Jason and replaces him with an overweight old crazy redneck named Madman Marz. Seriously this guy is scary because of how insane he looks; he has wild grey caveman hair, a crazy beard and a scar over his right eye. No wonder he is so angry. While looking him up on Google I saw that someone compared him to Harry from Harry & The Henderson's. They look almost identical.

The movie begins with some camp councilors telling the tale of Madman Marz: a crazy dude that got axed in the face and hung, but he survived and ran into the woods. If you say his name above a dull roar he will come back and kill everyone in the camp. So what happens? Well one of the stupid teenagers decides to yell the name at the top of his lungs and well... you can pretty much guess what happens. Crazed killer kills stupid teens in the woods.

The movie is full of your usual slasher movie killings. Axes, nooses,…
