Storyline

Young lovers John and Jenny decide to go for a drive in the countryside one day when they happen upon the remains of a long-abandoned resort spa. After doing some exploring, they find that an elderly couple is still living in the crumbling building. They tell the youngsters that the resort was shut down long ago because it was the headquarters of a satanic cult that performed cannibalistic rituals on unsuspecting visitors, and then invite the pair to stay for dinner. Will John or Jenny make it back to civilization alive? Will anyone believe their story? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Trivia

The Soda Spring Spa was actually the Arroyo Del Valle Sanatorium, a treatment center for tuberculosis in Livermore, California which opened in 1918. With TB cases in decline, the sanatorium was closed in 1960 and sat vacant for more than a decade before the movie was filmed. The ruins were cleared in 1999, and Camp Arroyo was constructed on the site. See more »

Quotes

Jenny Macallister: What kind of meat is this, Mrs. Abercrombi? Is it beef?
Agnes Abercrombi: No.
Jenny Macallister: Well then, lamb or pork?
Agnes Abercrombi: No.
Jenny Macallister: What is it then?
Agnes Abercrombi: It's an old family recipe. I call it hunter's stew. It'd spoil all the fun if I told you how I made it.

An interesting obscurity!
31 May 2003 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This appears to be the only film Bill Herbert made which is a great pity as it shows a lot of promise. He wrote, produced and directed this thriller about a naive young student Jenny (Laurie Walters) who allows herself to be picked up by journalist John (Joe Spano). On a picnic date they find themselves at an abandoned health spa where the only occupant is a kind grey haired old lady Agnes (Edna MaCafee). However, nothing is what it seems and soon Laurie is in mortal danger. The two leads are excellent in this hodgepodge of witchcraft, cannibalism and axe wielding maniacs. The photography helps along the spooky atmosphere immensely and the editing is excellent. Unfortunately the bad points outweigh the good ones, the script is muddled, the music score is all over the place and the actress playing the old lady over does it dreadfully. It is much to the credit of Bill Herbert that he manages to create an atmosphere of nightmarish uncertainty despite the obvious constraints of a very low budget.
