The Burning. 1981. CROPSY

The Burning. 1981 - "It tells the story of a cruel, alcoholic caretaker at a summer camp (nicknamed Cropsy, after the huge garden shears he carries) who falls victim to a prank that went out of control and leaves him horribly burned and disfigured. Following his release from hospital, he returns to his old stomping ground and begins a murder spree."

This is one of my favorite 80's slashers, (among like, a thousand others) It's packed full of eye gore candy, melted flesh, nipples, severed fingers, and some of Savini's best work in make up and disfigurement. It sort of has a Friday The 13th feel to it, so if you haven't seen this, get the fuck out of your wet cave basement and rent this, or download it.

This painting is dedicated to the melted face of Cropsy, and Tom Savini for making him beautiful. Thank you for raping my eyes.
