"The Burning" from 1981. A melted dude terrorizes campers with garden sheers. Sounds like an episode of "Salute Your Shorts." Filmed at various Western New York camps in Olean and Franklinville with some shooting in Lewiston.
A $1.5M production of a rinky-dink lil' company called Miramax Films owned by the Weinstein brothers. They now rule Hollywood. Special effects by Tom Savini (who turned down work on Friday the 13th: Part 2 for this). Acting by future stars Jason Alexander (voice of 'Duckman'), Fischer Stevens and Holly Hunter. A solid slasher flick with nasty effects, a freaky soundtrack and an interesting history within Western New York and the movie industry.
