Me and a friend rented Tower of Evil because there was a naked woman on the back of the box, holding a bloody knife. You know a movie's bad when they have to show nudity on the back of the box. So naturally, we had to see it. We knew it would be total trash and were not disappointed. Of course, it could have been worse. It didn't become truly comical most of the time--and at some points, there was actually a feeling of suspense, and the atmosphere was pretty good for a trashy horror film. The sets were pretty nice too. Still, it was trash. The acting was terrible, all the sexual stuff was pretty lame and badly done, and the conclusion was both predicatable and disappointing. I say if you're going to make a movie like this, you should either make it really good, or so bad it becomes an instant cult classic. No in between. So see this if you've got nothing better to do, or like this kind of movie.
