The Burning 1981
The Burning opens at Camp Blackfoot, where we find a group of boys planning to play a prank on the ill-tempered camp caretaker Cropsy (Lou David). Given Cropsy's drunken harassment of the campers, the boys plan to scare him by placing a glowing skull in his cabin. But, the prank goes horribly wrong and Cropsy is suddenly engulfed in flames.
The action then jumps ahead five years. Cropsy is released from the hospital and we hear the doctors telling him that he shouldn't think about vengeance. Meanwhile, at Camp Stonewater, the kids are having a great summer, under the watchful eye of their counselors, Todd (Brian Matthews) and Michelle (Leah Ayres). Todd and Michelle decide to take a group of campers on an overnight trip down-river. They set out in a group of canoes and soon make camp for the night. There, Todd tells them the legend of Cropsy.
Soon, a black-clad figure lurking in the surrounding trees and brandishing a pair of garden shears. Could it be that the legend of a vengeful, wronged Cropsy that Todd tells around the campfire is about to become a harsh, bloody reality?
