There are times when I actually prefer Madman over The Burning. I love the fall setting, the atmospheric camp setting, the blue hues and the moody/weird score. The hot tub scenes are a riot, it's the pinnacle of corny and cheese. I would love to watch that very scene at a midnight screening in a sold out theater. I'd imagine the audience going howling wild over that one Madman delivers playing it straight and doing the unintentionally funny stuff. Very entertaining on both accounts.
