Well, this is pretty much a bunch of gory killings (cheesily staged) strung together by a weak premise. The idea is that a witch burned back in the day is getting revenge on a bunch of kids who are filming a movie in the same building (I think). Watch for a floating car, and various decaptitations and stabbings. There is also one of the strangest strippers I've ever seen in a movie! Truthfully it's not all that bad for a typical slasher flick, it just didn't offer much different and wasn't all that satisfying when you add up the sum of all the parts. It's clearly low budget and the effects are less than effective most of the time but the effort is there I suppose. Still fans of the red stuff will likely want a gander at this one!
