The Impaler (2013)

The Impaler is a run-of-the-mill teen slasher mixed into the vampire genre. The performances are – for the most part – good, and the writing and all other aspects are adequate enough. This is not a film you need to hunt for, but also not a film you need to avoid at all cost. […]
