Rish Outfield's reviews
An abomination. Seriously. Oh, there was nothing redeemable about this one. It was painful to sit through. Poor dialogue, abysmal acting, poor special effects, awful 80's fashion, subplots that have less to do with the story than the FBI warning did, etc. It was boring, poorly done, cheap, and completely uncreative. No nudity. Nothing.
Best Scare: Wow, probably none. A shot when the elevator doors open and killer is standing there, comes closest. Maybe.
I'd Recommend It To: No one. Maybe to someone as a mean trick.

The tyranist's thoughts
Quite simply one of the worst films (not just horror) ever made. Beginning to end it made no sense. I couldn't have cared any less about the characters. There were entire segments that looked as if they had been lifted from another movie. The heroine was pathetic. The villain was even worse. This movie was just plain bad.
