Plot: a group of people invited to the screening of a new movie find themselves trapped in the theater with demons
This movie is one of those, so-bad-it’s-good movies. The sound dubbing is so bad that sometimes people will say things, but their mouths won’t even move. And it’s basically just a movie about the same bunch of people running left, then right, then left again, while demons chase them. There’s prostitutes, a blind guy and a pimp that is the voice of reason.
All these people are given free movie tickets, which is a shame because me and DJ probably would’ve used said tickets and ended up running back and forth for our own lives. A mask turns the 1st prostitute into a demon and then she attacks her prostitute friend. Then, it’s a free for all. Hell has literally broken loose. The 4 main characters – 2 girl friends and 2 guy friends – decide to become insta-couples because we guess that’s what you do when you’re scared.
There is a boob shot in the movie, but just one. Just one boob. Not a set of boobs. One boob. And the redhead that works at the movie theater has this very suspicious look on her face for the first half of the film so you think maybe she knows something, but that’s untrue. It’s just bad acting and bad direction. Oh, Bava.
We suggest the movie because it’s fun. Really fun and funny. But don’t go in thinking it’s the best movie ever that you’re going to want to own.
Our score: 51.
