Shadows Run Black (1986)


Early outing for Kevin Costner in this mid-80s slasher, although the funk soundtrack would have you believe it’s earlier than that.

A slasher by numbers but not particularly gory, the lack of blood is made up for by every young woman taking their clothes off at some stage. It’s a tried and tested formula guaranteed to get the teenage boys into the cinema.

If there wasn’t the nudity this would now be reclassified as a 15, but even a 10 year old could see the plot twist coming. Some unnecessary racism in it keeps the rating at 18.

Very average.
