Just Before Dawn (1982)
Movie Review by The Undertaker
06.10.03

Just Before Dawn (1982) Jeff Lieberman's take on the slasher film and terror in the deep woods makes for a helluva viewing experience for fans of this type of scary movie. Any horror fan in general really should see it though, just has a great atmosphere about it and some pretty nasty scenes that you won't soon forget. There's even a little nudity courtesy of redhead Jamie Rose told your interest until the campers start dropping like flies. When you mix inbreds, RV's, noisy young people with a land deed who pay no heed to forest ranger warnings, and a dense forest setting, you get all kinds of trouble here from director Jeff Lieberman. I loved his movie Squirm. I enjoyed Blue Sunshine, but I like Just before Dawn a little better. The makers of Wrong Turn definitely owe this film and Don't Go in the Woods...Alone for inspiration if nothing else. Hell, all three films would make a great movie night sometime. Scattered throughout are some truly spooky moments along with the blood, a slight twist livens things up near the end also. People always make note of the female empowered ending and it is worth the note. How many gals do you know willing to stuff their entire fist down a hillbilly killer's face to save their wimpy boyfriend's ass? Interested now? This lost classick deserves some credit and maybe some kind of crazy loaded DVD as do all Lieberman's movies. One more reason not to go camping, hiking, or do any other outdoor activity that may put you in Deliverance country.
