" The Ups: It is believably gory and has some memorable death sequences especially the exploding head of Tom Savini and disturbingly sexy knife kills. Caroline Munro as one of the sexy damsels in distress and adult actress Abigail Clayton has a memorable death scene. Good movie score. Joe Spinell goes totally dark into the role as a maniac. It is also undeniably atmospheric. The Downs: Well it is also a pretty sick and tasteless and it could be just how one could feel after seeing this film. "
