Journeying to a secluded house, a group of friends head into the desert as part of a sorority initiation activity but awaken the murderous spirit of an ancestor that is seeking out a way of revenge against her treatment and tries to stop their rampage before they're all killed off.
On the whole this one wasn't that bad at all. One of it's better features here is the film's rather nice and enjoyable plot as once it gets going, it has a ton of good stuff to it. This one starts off rather nicely here with the group heading out into the desert and arriving at the house which features the start of the action as those early haunting scenes with the ghost appearing along the highway being quite creepy leading into the scenes of them around the house. As this leads nicely into exploring the house as well as their initiation tactics there's quite some fun times here which leads nicely into the later half which has some fantastic scenes here when the ghost really starts getting involved in the action with some solid stalking and haunting scenes. The first time it appears in the bedroom is quite a nice stalking scene, the surprise attack on the one friend in the middle of the basement and the big surprise ambush on them at the house which is where this one becomes really enjoyable with the build-up to the creature coming out of the darkness even though they don't realize the ghost is the cause and the fun chaos that results from the discovery of the bodies and the race to get out which is all classic slasher film fun. Filled with some fun supernatural-themed action to come from the big battle at the end and some great work tying in the legend of the ghost's ancestors to the whole revenge plot involved here, that becomes quite enjoyable as well detailing all the nice action to come from this part of the film. Along with the nice gore effects and plentiful nudity there's some fun to be had here, though it does have some some minor issues with it. The biggest one is that the film is still highly watchable but is rather uneven in the pacing as in order to deal with such a flimsy plot, more time than what is usually the case is spent on the setup of the group at the house and how they're interacting with each other, so this one has a long time without a whole lot of ghostly dealings. Despite how much fun they are watching the group there, this one is quite uneven in how it details it's ghostly actions with so much of it occurring in the last half that there's a rather uneven split here and it can feel quite plodding at times. As well, some of that here is due to the obvious stunt- casting of the ranch-hand with them who has no business being there, offers nothing during the film and serves no purpose other than to get the name into the credits so taking his time out would've probably made the film run along a little faster. Overall there's some good stuff here, but it does take awhile to get there.
Rated R: Graphic Language, Graphic Violence and Full Nudity.
