Oh what a terrible movie New Year's Evil is. This was the worst of all of them. I turned it off with about five minutes to go. There was no suspense. The killer confirms, verbatim, what feminist and gender critics fear most about these movies. A sad, sad way to end my own private movie festival for Christmas break. The verdict: The Prowler was the best of the lot. It had suspense, some nudity, some of Tom Savini's very best work, and a killer with an awesome WWII uniform and gas-mask.
