This undistinguished horror film by Buddy Cooper focuses in some detail on the blood and gore surrounding the gradual massacre of a group of teens but does not endow the storyline with the same careful attention. The premise is that a father becomes homicidal a good decade after his son accidentally kills his mother while cleaning a gun -- and what happened during those 10+ years or why insanity comes as a rather delayed reaction are not explained. When the son (Matt Mitler) is away at college, he decides to bring along several friends to spend their fall break (the alternate title of this film) taking care of his father's condo at the seashore. Little does the son know that his deranged father is lying in wait to wreak vengeance for the long-ago death of his wife.
