When Shirley is burned in the acid bath, her position and facial burns change between shots. First she drowns unconscious from the burns, and has obvious marks on her face from the acid. The next two shots, the others hear her screaming, and then she's struggling to pull herself out of the tub, but her facial burns have disappeared. Next shot, she's suddenly still again; her face, now changed to a waxy state which breaks off like cement; just as the others arrive to find her. Realistically her face should be melting away or peeling off. Next shot, the surviving group enter the bathroom to find the shriveled remains of a skeleton. See more »
YES, the plot is hardly plausible and very thin. YES, the acting does range from average to laughable. YES, it has been done so many times before. However what we are dealing with is a film that does not shy away from these facts and pretends to be nothing more than it is. There are indeed some original death scenes and the tension does increase throughout the movie. In addition you are never more than a few minutes away from a gory killing. I urge everyone to watch this film with an unprejudiced eye and see it for what it set out to be; a scary, funny slasher flick with a theme tune second to none.
