Book for Summer Lectures: Summertime Scares

Introduced by Ellen Cheshire

Crystal Lake's history of murder doesn't deter counselors from setting up a summer camp in the woodsy area.

Superstitious locals warn against it, but the fresh-faced young people - Jack, Alice, Bill, Marcie and Ned - pay little heed to the old-timers.

Then they find themselves stalked by a brutal killer. As they're slashed, shot and stabbed, the counselors struggle to stay alive against a merciless opponent.

'The best bits of Halloween, Carrie, and Hitchcock’s Psycho were cheekily repurposed here by the director Sean S Cunningham for a slasher movie [...] that remains the genre standard-bearer' - Kevin Maher, Times
