Featuring the #1 smash-hit "Animal Workout"!
28 January 1999 | by (#G) – See all my reviews

Ah yes.. Killer Workout. WHO THOUGHT THIS WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA??! Oddly enough, there is a whole little sub-genre of this type of film, so if watching frizz-haired leotards bounce enthusiastically to songs called "Animal Workout" while evading certain death at the hands of a crazed fitness director or bloodthirsty demon is your cup of tea, I'd recommend this or Death Spa. Killer Workout is bad. I'm not even sure if it's good bad.. it's bad, that's all

I know. Alright, let's review:

80's skank? yes.

Do said skanks get naked? yes, unfortunately. the only t&a in this film, aside from that which was constrained by spandex, belonged to the crazy killer burn victim girl. yuck yuck yuck!!! very disturbing.

More plot inconsistencies than you can shake a script at? yes.

Problems with continuity? yes.

Stupid plot? yes. (consider, if you will, the tragic story of a fashion model who is involved in a terrible freak accident involving a tanning bed that spontaneously combusts. she then goes on to open a fitness club and proceeds to systematically slaughter the pretty female clientelle with a safety pin.)

Ridiculously fake gore? oh my yes.

Equally ridiculous instruments of death (such as safety pin and trash can)? you bet.

Guaranteed good time? hmm.. maybe. you'll get plenty of chances to hurl MSTies at this one, that's for sure.
