"I first saw FLESHBURN in a theatre in 1984 and I suppose it left a large enough impression on me that I would
buy it all these years later--is it really 23 years gone by? Definite B cinema with a few interesting ideas but
nothing all that horrific...just a good, mediocre action flick. Supposed to be a psychological thriller but it's not
really psychological and it's not really thrilling. A few scenes are really bad, er...embarrassing--lighting, acting(especially in the early scenes)...maybe i should read the book but i don't think i will...it's sad when a bad movie turns you from the written word. I actually only bought this as research on my own novel about watching that film in that theatre but now I'm not even going to include that scene in my book--anymore.
I was going to write a horror film inspired by the opening moments of this film but I think I will scrap that too...most all horror films today are crap. Sorry, wish i could say something better but you asked for it. msd."
