Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The Burning is a Slasher Movie from the year 1981, conceived and produced by an early career (and very pre-scandal) Harvey Weinstein. It was directed by Tony Maylam. It featured special effects by Tom Savini and its music was composed by keyboardist Rick Wakeman (of David Bowie and Yes fame).Five years after a group of kids set Camp Blackfoot's cruel caretaker, Cropsy, on fire (in a prank involving a skull with candles for eyes), he gets released from the hospital. After killing a prostitute, Cropsy heads back to the camp with a pair of garden shears and starts offing campers left and right.A former Video Nasty due to some rather bloody death scenes (most notably the infamous raft sequence, which ended up being heavily censored in order to get an R-Rating), the film is mainly known for its lack of availability for many years; the VHS release quickly fell out of print, causing the film to gain cult status amongst horror fans who were lucky enough to see the film. After years of being in limbo due to rights issues, it finally saw an uncut DVD release in 2007.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })

The Alcoholic: According to Todd, Cropsy drank two bottles of whiskey in a day when he was still the caretaker at Camp Blackfoot.

'80s Hair: As it takes place in the early 80's, this is pretty much a given.

Absurdly Sharp Blade: The blades of Cropsy's shears are sharp enough to cut through one's skull with one swipe.

All Women Are Lustful: The girls are horny too. Hey, they're all hormonal teenagers. The girls even express interest in the muscular Glazer, though to their credit most snub him when he's mean to Alfred in front of them.
