Steve reassures his girlfriend that their Uzis are, "...semi automatics. Perfectly legal." In fact even semi automatic Uzis are still consider Class III weapons covered under the NFA (National Firearms Control Act of 1934) due to their 10 inch barrels. California does not grant permits for such weapons to private citizens. Even semi automatic Uzis must be classified as a "carbine" with a 16 inch barrel, or a "pistol" with no buttstock. See more »
The plot is as tired as any in that a group of friends go off into the middle of nowhere to have some fun. Once there they happen upon an empty house and decide to impose on the hospitality of the erstwhile residents. Only the big problem is they are not alone mwah!
Now this starts off fairly lame as it is full of macho centric twaddle and the ladies have that big eighties hair and attitude etc. At times it looks just like a really bad MTV video of the time especially in the over long road sequence. However, as things get more interesting the group start to behave in a much more believable way and then the twists start coming and it is actually quite inventive – and that is where it pulls it back.
The acting is all OK with no one making a new space in their awards cabinet but they all manage to convince. If you want a no brainer then you could do a lot worse than this and the restored picture quality makes it look as good as new. If you want something high brow then steer well clear but for some big haired frights then this is worth a go.
