Gather Around the Campfire to Die!
This movie is kind of like Friday the 13th (1980) meets A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) meets the Weinstein brothers - even though The Burning came out several years before Wes Craven's movie and Bob Weinstein claims he helped write the script for this movie before Friday the 13th came out. Anyway, Harvey Weinstein produced the film and Bob was one of the writers and they eventually went on to establish a movie making empire with Miramax Films and then The Weinstein Company. Tom Savini also did the special effects for The Burning so, you know, it has that going for it. It also features a young George Costanza a.k.a. Jason Alexander.
