There ia absolutely nothing like this movie!!! Yes it is a bit corny, but it is very funny and has an excellent plot. (How many movies do you remembre where a jealous, deceased ex wife comes back to haunt and torment any AND everybody at a health spa, through a computer system no less?) If you are into 1980's horror with laughs and a little bit of nudity, then check this one out. Otherwise, this isn't for you.

I'll be honest from word one: I can't really convince you that the delightfully daft horror epic "Death Spa" is a great movie. It isn't! As a time capsule for the late eighties slasher flick, though, it is much more fun than you have any reason to imagine it will be. Truthfully, I loved this movie! It didn't shock or scare me, but I laughed along as it moved from one silly scenario to the next. At the heart of "Death Spa" is a sophisticated computer controlled gym facility. This state-of-the-art luxury spa has everything you would want from a gym, except (of course) for an ever-escalating body count! As the movie progresses, it seems that the computer system has been compromised and this leads to a series of unfortunate events. As weight machines grow deadly, the sauna becomes a death trap, and the showers develop a murderous mind of their own, one must wonder if anyone is safe. Various other problems plague the Health Spa, but for most of the patrons--things remain business-as-usual.

That's part of the movie's charm, though. No matter what has happened to kill or maim the gym's hard bodies, no one quits coming to work-out! Heck, what's a death or two? A gala costume party, in fact, remains on track for the film's finale. It seems a tad thoughtless to proceed with the party, but who am I to judge? And as the blood starts to flow at the party (screams, fights, countless deaths and mutilations), most of the revelers remain in a sweetened state of bliss no matter how close by death is knocking. But is there any escaping the Death Spa? Even the clueless detective investigating matters is more concerned with the juice girl than the violent deaths all around him!

The central mystery, naturally, is what is causing the Spa to malfunction. Is it a maniacal murderer?

And I loved it.

This is a hodge podge of horror movie cliches of the time, and an overall celebration of 80's cheese. The story line, and it's numerous pointless subplots are laughable at best. But it's still a fun ride.

Basically it's about an all electronic health club, and a series of accidents that have people questing why it's happening. Of course the movie does reveal early on that it is in fact a ghost doing all the misdeeds, so the investigation portions, as well as the scheming by the co owners of the spa to wrest control of the building are all completely pointless diversions. But hey, gotta pad that running time.

It does rip off several horror genre classics. But in execution it rips those movies off in a fun way. The numerous ways people get offed in this film are oftentimes creative, and have a shockingly decent practical effects to go along with it.

The funny thing about the effects is that some of them would be genuinely creepy and horrific if the movie itself wasn't so silly in execution. If you took some of the scenes in the movie and put them in a movie with a more serious tone, they'd be quite unnerving. Which for a movie like this, is the best compliment I can give it's special effects.

This is by no means a classic film. The story and characters are dumb. But it's a fun watch if you like to laugh at bad movies. There is a fair bit of nudity in the film though, so you might want to screen it for group viewing first. Otherwise, yeah, it's a great sit through with a group of people who like to laugh at bad films. So if this sounds interesting to you, then check it out.

This is one of those obscure films that genre fans MUST see! It's very fun and hardly dull. I was interested and invested from the moment it began to the time the credits rolled. The score is pretty great, the gore is awesome! I honestly loved the characters. They're all very colorful and memorable. Speaking of colors, this movie is very vibrant! So incredibly late-80s in look and music. I really loved it. If you like cheesy horror films or are just in love with the 1980s, check it out! I didn't imagine I'd enjoy this film so much but I really did. It's a must-see!

Rented this film before listening to episode #122 of "How Did This Get Made" podcast on Earwolf.com . It's a film to watch during Holloween. But it's just not a good film. It's a film to watch with friends to see over the top gore, but characters that just make no sense in the real world. Was surprised to learn it was Merritt Butrick's last credited film.Did enjoy seeing Chelsea Field in the film.So it was worth watching once. But in no hurry to ever see it again any time soon.

Have to give "How Did This Get Made" credit for finding this best of the worst Holloween Film of all time. Really enjoyed what Paul Scheer,June Diane Raphael,Jason Mantzoukas,and special guest Horatio Sanz had to say in episode 122. Recommend anyone interested take the time to listen to it.
