Even going by lowered standards, those trying to make it through the film will more than likely be bored to death as they sit around for an hour and wait for something to happen to lift the film from its drudgery.

A raucous and very novel horror film that hasn't aged a bit.

The best bit of the entire film was Angela's posssessed dance to Stigmata Martyr. The rest was all female anatomy and unconvincing acting. I was expecting… More
