Goofs

This film was written and produced in the mid-80s and by all appearances is meant to be taking place in the present day of that time. However, a party is advertised as happening on Saturday, February 2, which could only be an actual date in either 1980 or 1991, but in no year in between. See more »

Possibly the "best" of its genre
12 May 2018 | by ejonconradSee all my reviews

I was in the mood for some good 80 schlock horror, and I stumbled onto this gem Amazon Prime. Somehow, I'd never seen it before, but I wasn't disappointed. It doesn't get any schlockier or anymore 80s than this.

Spandex? Check Gratuitous nudity? Check Aerobics? Check Pastels? Check Smoke machines? Check Melting faces? Check Exploding heads? Check Incredibly lame special effects? Check

Seriously, it's got it all.

It looks like they had three distinct ideas for how things would play out, and decided to go with all three at the same time, so they all kind of mash together. It's a confusing mess, but who cares. If you're looking for a plot, you're looking in the wrong place.

Just relax and enjoy it.
