More than 30 years later, it remains one of the most ambitious, sought-after and totally bizarre low-budget Canadian features of all: Yugoslavian-born actor Lazar Rockwood in a debut performance Canuxploitation.com calls "creepy, astonishingly uncharismatic, and displaying a complete disregard for the craft of acting" is Boris, an ex-con and career thief who convinces his ex-girlfriend (Bonnie Beck) to help him rob her wealthy boss castle. But when Boris discovers that the eccentric millionaire has booby-trapped the building, they'll have to survive six riddle-triggered rooms of homicidal mayhem in order to claim the treasure. Writer/director (and future best-selling religious thriller author) B.D. Benedikt made his unforgettable filmmaking debut with this bottom-shelf VHS classic, now loaded with Special Features produced exclusively for its worldwide DVD premiere.

Basically, it's almost an adult haunted house version of Dora the Explorer. It just needed to teach you French Canadian French to complete the circle.
Another part of the bizarre, Rockwood's performance. It's so weird from his voice, mannerisms, oddly shaped body, etc. The other part is the plot itself. They end up in a geographically impossible house that has hidden rooms and crannies complete with death traps. It's an impressive contractor that can keep their mouth shut about building such elaborate death traps. The movie eventually also starts throwing tons of twists and turns at you. It's one of the most off kilter movies I've watched in forever.
It's not a great movie but it's fun. It's also ambitious. I prefer ambitious and fun too the pointless awards chasing rubbish in films like The Revenant and it's ilk.
It's kind of like an earlier version of Saw, only more fun, and with a really bad actor, who does a great job...at being terrible.
I don't want to give away any of the traps or what happens in the plot.
I bought it last year just before Christmas and watched it once, haven't watched it since, but I am wondering if it would be better to drink the equivalent of a public water fountain of Mountain Dew Black Label while watching this dvd instead of the Hawaiian Punch, it has blue and purple food dye, not red, and I'm thinking that may be a bit better. I won't hold my breath though.
One of two things will happen, the ending will make up for a bunch of the flaws and you'll like it, or you'll go mad because it was so awful and i'll have to change my name and move.
