Oh how the mighty Lenzi hath fallen by this point. This was nearly frustratingly bad most of the time, and only the ending kept it from being sub par even on the scale of '80s slasher films! The film starts off with a mean biker being executed through electricity of course. Then enter a bunch of terrible actors (the lead characters are maybe even the worst...entirely dead behind the eyes) who are being slaughtered by a biker who kills with electricity. There is the odd nice touch in there like one girl who was a whore sleeping with old fat men for no apparent reason (aside from money of course) and little things here and there. It's also filled with cheap shots of wet t-shirts and such on the beach, it's far from entertaining (at least for a straight female). It's not enough to make this worth your time unless you are a freak for cheesy films like this one, heck I usually am but this definitely failed to impress on many levels.
