"I'm just CRAZY about this store!"—The Killer
In a market after closing hours, a bunch of people are working late. One of the worker's abusive ex-boyfriend then starts harassing her and soon they are being killed gruesomely one by one.
Even though it is a by-the-book Slasher Film, it gained cult status after its release in 1989 for having plenty of Sam Raimi regulars present (including the man himself) in the cast and its gorntastic kills.
The kill scenes were cut severely by the producer for its initial release, but they are restored in the 2008 DVD-release.
