Body Count (1986, Ruggero Deodato)
Ruggero Deodato - director of the notoriously sleazy and violent jungle-exploit masterpiece "Cannibal Holocaust" - didn't really make the hearty transition into the 80s 'slasher' scene like you'd imagine. "Body Count" is very disappointing.
A group of camping young people are picked off by, what is believed to be, an old Indian Shaman type of curse. David Hess pops up here and there as the guy setting up traps around the woods to catch the killer. There's also some shit involving his floosie wife having an affair with the local sheriff, played by Charles Napier...
