They did a great job with the dvd case. They promise a really sexy and sick horror film. What you get is a rehashed plot you've seen a hundred times, nothing sexy. Even Kristy Swanson is wasted in the film because she is obviously pregnant the entire time. Yes there are 5 murders, but aside from the rack sequence, most are common fare. I would skip this one.

I watched this last night. It's not as bad as I might have thought. It actually has a somewhat interesting plot. The sound quality stinks though, turn it up high enough to hear the dialogue and the "music" (such as it is) is overwhelmingly loud and blasts you away.
Caddish rich-heir-from-Daddy husband, sexy wife (yum, great kisser) and her lover, his best friend. Wife and lover off the cad with blowfish-poison. Only he doesn't die, he is paralyzed like dead but still sees and hears everything but can't move a muscle ("Living Death"). He wakes up on the autopsy table and goes on a revengefest.

A medieval torture stretching rack features twice in this horror-genre flick. Daddy had a hobby, a fully equipped attic medieval dungeon that hubby, and implicitly his wife, use for fun and games. The movie starts with yon cad entertaining a lady friend up there with some erotic moderate stretching on a large angled rack (severe unpadded heavy iron manacles, ouch). Things go awry when his wife surprises them. Startled, he leans too hard on the lever and damages the rackee.

One gets an impression of the rack's dismembering strength but pictures of the mechanism are unpersuasive, just closeups of gears meshing and chains and ropes tightening. The rack figures again at the end of the movie in the vengeancefest, this time as a torture and execution means. No erotic BDSM this time, but pain and dismemberment. The scene suggests the horror of the real thing beyond erotica when it was used for torture and punishment, much less execution.

Anyway, I've seen worse horror-genre flicks. If you're a rack aficionado it's worth a look.

Well, most of the reviews here do a good job of sumarizing this movie but it deserves a little higher rating than it's being given here. This has a dark sardonic tone that makes it kind of an enjoyable but weird horror movie. Not the torture porn garbage the DVD cover would imply, it's a traditional thing more along the lines of some modernized americanized version of some weird lost Itailian horror flick from the 70's. The highlight and SPOILER ALERT HERE is the end. We finally perhaps for the first time in movie history get to see a person pulled apart on a medieval rack. Didn't you really always want to actually see that? I mean the dude's arms and legs come popping off. In a quasi-realistic way that is still somewhat enough reminicent of Hershell type gore to just crack a person up. I am not the herbal enhancing type of dude, but those that pack sticky buds in their bongs will find this something that could be filed as stoner worthy horror ...a midnight movie that never was. Engagingly stupid and weirdly funny, it would be recomended to buy, but Cinemax and other channels constantly show it uncut. Worth checking out.

First of all they took the plot directly from Buried Alive so if you want to see a much better version may I suggust Buried Alive or Buried Alive II. Second, I still will never understand why someone INSISTS on making a movie (I can understand sitcoms & soaps but NOT movies)when one of the main characters is pregnant and they try to cover it up all during the movie. Sure, they eventually worked it in but only after you spend the whole movie watching the beautiful Kristy Swanson in a completely seductive role walking around in the same dress all during the movie in this obvious bloated state.

Victor Harris (Greg Bryk, looking eerily like a kid I knew from childhood) is a serial killer waiting to happen. We first see him escorting an incredibly beautiful woman, Melanie Pearson, whom he has apparently just "picked up" tonight, to his home. After she simmeringly removes her knee high black boots he blindfolds her and leads her upstairs to the attic, the best room of the house. When he takes off the blindfold she sees a room full of torture equipment. She is thrilled, goes over to the rack on which heretics were once "stretched" in order to elicit confessions and punish sinners, she leans over it, making sure he gets a very nice look at her amazing cleavage, and says, "nice rack."
What happens afterward is gruesome, harrowing, and beautiful to the trained horror eye in a tragic way. This is to me 100% torture porn—not some juvenile peep show into some sociopath's torture basement (BASEMENT!!!) but a real exploration that explores the livid, festering hatred which is ALWAYS the motivation of torture of all kinds (and that's my real life opinion!)
EXAMPLE OF DEPRAVITY 1: Stu, a medical student, believing Victor Harris to be a cadaver, cuts his abdomen open and reaches in up to the elbow. "This guy has guts," he announces. "Take it easy, Stu, it's not prom night!" says his fetchingly bespectacled accessory.
EXAMPLE OF DEPRAVITY 2: Stu's other cohort, stressed over the fact that he has just cut open a live human being, pulls a phial out of his jeans pocket, puts it to his nose and inhales deeply.
"What is that?" asks Stu.
"Meth. I gotta think straight."
I rest my case.
To my mind, everyone involved in this movie is a major artistic talent. Everyone. Kristy Swanson, call me maybe? jk!
