Unlike most "camcorder" microbudget movies, this one has a fun (if familiar) plot, decent special effects, good acting, great music, and just the right amount of gore and sex (thanks to a hot, gratuitous Darian Caine shower scene!!!). It's obviously a labor of love for writer-director Ray Schwetz and the cast/crew. Seven strangers go to a run down mansion to attend a dinner party for a mysterious business opportunity. When one of them is murdered by a killer in black (shades of Argento giallo films!)and a secret to the dinner is revealed (yuch!) the guests and staff begin murdering each other! Who will survive? Where is the host? It's Agatha Christie formula, but done with a modern spin on a very low budget, and it delivers! The DVD is great! Lots of extras, and it's paired with another fun low budget anthology film called "Guilty Pleasures"! I wasn't expecting much, and the film does have some bad lighting and camera-work in spots (things that plague most of these "indie" features), but overall it's a surprisingly funny, gory good time! I look forward to the next Cinema Image movie!!!
