  1. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Just Before Dawn

    Deliverance vibe. Brad Fiedel score was nice.

  2. Jordan Kaltz's rating of the film Just Before Dawn

  3. NICOLE86's rating of the film Just Before Dawn

    The reversal of the male and female horror roles at the end is very fascinating, but everything else is a giant clusterfuck (who the fuck brings makeup to the woods). And the end death scene was the dumbest thing I have ever seen.

  4. Joshua's rating of the film Just Before Dawn

    Beautiful location and a very realistic slasher film. Music is almost non-existent, instead relying on nature sounds and the shouts of friends to keep tensions high. While it does feel as if it was shot at random at the beginning, and I can't say it's one of the darker entries from 1981, the fantastic ending where reserved Connie puts her whimpering boyfriend to shame as he grovels at her feet is a perfect close.

  5. Alcock Hitchfred's rating of the film Just Before Dawn

    It's well shot and very cryptic, but don't a expect a "genuinely shocking" plot twist...

  6. Scout Tafoya's rating of the film Just Before Dawn

    I know the bar isn't terribly high but this is the best also-ran slasher of the 80s in the wake of Friday the 13th. Stylish, beautifully shot, creepy and satisfying; one of the great, unknown, independent horror films.
