could've been better
17 April 2005 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

Slaughter Studios was left abandoned after an actor dies on the set of a movie decades back. In the present day, Steve, an aspiring director plans to break into the Studios before it gets demolished. An unseen maniac soon starts killing the unsuspecting crew. This film has the gore. It has the copious amounts of nudity. I just can't help to feel that it would have been better if it were played straighter with less insanely stupid comedy. As it is, I've seen much worse horror/ comedies then this, trust me. Some of those said worse movies are used as stock footage in this one, by the way.

My Grade: C-

DVD Extras: Commentary by Brian Katkin and Christopher Farrell; Original Trailer; Trailers for "Stalled", "Shakedown" and "Lethal Force"

Eye Candy: Serra Ellison, Eva Frajko, Lorissa McComas, and Laura Otis get topless; Tara Killian does full body nudity
