Tony: This could be a lot of different things, you guys. Maybe it's a collector.
Peter: A collector? Tony, people collect stamps, baseball cards, ancient Incan artifacts. No one collects scalps!
Jack: No-one normal.
Susan: Peter, take it easy.
Peter: Take it easy? Take it easy? There's a smashed car outside, coffins in the basement, and scalps in the closet, and you're telling me to take it easy? What's next, Uncle Fester on the patio?

Solid enough if flawed genre effort

Heading out to a friends' house, a group of friends decide to spend the night camping until they reach their destination and arrive at a secluded mansion out in the middle of the countryside, and upon learning that someone might be in the house with them try to find a way of stopping the malevolent force with them.

This one wasn't all too bad of an effort. Among the more intriguing elements of the film are the engrossing atmosphere and suspense present that generates some enjoyable elements. The entire layout of the house, with the modest Gothic decorations, dozens of cobwebs and dirt strewn around an area of disuse for what looks like several decades is a serviceable state to provide for a haunted house film. The continuous decorations of the strange woman in the erotic photos adorning the walls and the decorative human remains found in the jars hidden in the secret room creates a full-on immersion into the haunting atmosphere present in the house that sets a chilling tone throughout here. As well, the film gets a lot to like once it finally gets going and delivers on the expectation setup from the atmosphere. The series of stalking scenes taking place in inside the house, where the cast are picked off one-by-one by the shadowy figure emerging out of the darkness offers some chilling moments despite the relative blandness of stabbings that result from their encounters, and they manage to take full advantage of being out in the hallways and various buildings inside the darkened house which adds a lot to the film by ramping up the excitement at the finale. The gore is also at least plentiful to make up for that repetitive state of stabbings, and with some solid eroticism to go along with it, there are some enjoyable aspects that holds it up. There are some issues to be had here. The main problem is the decided lack of action here, managing to feature hardly anything happening for long periods that it becomes quite dull simply watching the group wander through one creepy room to the next. The build-up is admittedly successful in creating a strong atmosphere but hardly ever is that atmosphere ever given any significant boost that would propel itself along as the generally tepid pacing where nothing is going on. It takes until nearly the hour mark before they discover that something's wrong and when it does it's incredibly underwhelming with a lame reasoning and ridiculous payoff due to the backstory that sets up what's going on that it nearly becomes worthless to have done so. These here are what holds the film back.

Rated Unrated/R: Full Male and Female Nudity, a strong sex scene
