"The use of the pitchfork was a nice touch, but this one does not stand out amongst the other slasher films"
Hayride: A college student returning home for Halloween is forced to face his childhood fears when an escaped killer takes refuge in his family's "Haunted Hayride".
I have now watched Hayride and Hayride 2, two slasherfilmes and I am sure that this will be a beginning of a slasherseries like Friday the 13th, but not as good. Hayride evolves around the story of Pitchfork, a killer on a killingspree searching for his daughter who ran away with her boyfriend or so the legend is told. The flashbacks could have been done better, but I must admit that I did not see the ending coming, I was sure of one thing and then it changed completely. The use of the pitchfork was a nice touch, but this one does not stand out amongst the other slasher films and is not as good as those from the 80's, but Hayride is worth a watch and I would not mind if several more Hayride movies were made because I am sure that Pitchforks story could evolve and be more interesting.
