Lovers Lane is a Slasher Movie released in 2000.In 1986, a small town was shaken by the violent Valentine's Day hook murders of Harriet Anderson and Ward Lamson (who were married... but not to each other) in a secluded area nicknamed Lovers Lane. The double homicide was quickly pinned on a local oddball pervert named Ray Hennessey, who was placed in the nearby Meston State Hospital, under the care of Doctor Jack Grefe, half-brother of Sheriff Tom Anderson, Harriet's husband. He was also given the (rather unoriginal) nickname "the Hook".Things are fine until Valentine's Day thirteen years later, when Ray escapes, killing an orderly and taking his old hook (which Doctor Grefe kept under glass in his office) in the process, leaving behind a newspaper clipping which implicates he will go after Doctor Grefe's teenaged daughter, Chloe. Despite news of the Hook's escape, a group of high school students (which includes Chloe, Janelle, Doug, Tim, Cathy, Bradley, Sheriff Anderson's daughter Mandy, and Ward Lamson's son and Chloe ex-boyfriend Michael) decide to spend the night up on Lovers Lane, boozing, partying and sexing it up without having to worry about anyone, since the only people who live anywhere close to the area are Old Man Yasgur and his wife.Of course, the Hook, who is being tracked by the police (headed by Sheriff Anderson) and high school principal Penny Lamson (Michael's mother) cannot resist all this sweet young meat, especially when the children of his original victims are among it.
This film provides examples of the following tropes:
Cat Scare: Doug and Tim using ketchup to make it look like Tim was attacked. Later, Sheriff Anderson is scared by an actual cat while looking through Doctor Grefe's house. Later still, Michael and Mandy are scared by a pig while looking through the Yasgur barn.
The End... Or Is It?: An officer brings Mandy and Michael to a police van, and tells the driver to bring them home. After the officer leaves, the driver is revealed to be Ray via his glimpsed Hook Hand.
Foreshadowing: In the bowling alley, Janelle mentions that the version of the hook-handed maniac story she heard involved the killer being disfigured by a fiery explosion. Near the end, this actually does happen to Doctor Grefe. Also, Chloe's line "No, you are gonna fuck me right now, or I'm going to kill you're faggot ass."
Chloe went crazy after Michael dumped her, and decided to kill him and anyone who got in her way.
Doctor Grefe, who goes along with his daughter, was madly in love with Harriet, and killed her and Ward when she rejected his advances. He is similarly obsessed with Mandy.
Ray was framed by Doctor Grefe, but was violently insane anyway, and is killing independently of the Grefes.
Screaming Woman: The female member of the couple in the opening, upon finding Ward and Harriet's bodies, and Penny, who just stands there dumbstruck as Sheriff Anderson and Doctor Grefe fight near the end.
Wounded Gazelle Gambit: Chloe lies in the middle of the road and pretends to be injured, and states Brad is still alive, to get Mandy and Michael to go back to Lovers Lane, where she and her father can finish them off.
Yandere: Chloe, who went insane and decided to kill everyone (with her father's help) after being told by Bradley that Michael wanted out of their relationship.
Your Cheating Heart: Since their bodies were found together on Lovers Lane, it was assumed Ward and Harriet were having an affair, though it's later revealed by Doctor Grefe that they weren't, he just posed the bodies like that.
