Movie Info

This campy gorefest is basically a series of outrageous death scenes set in a chi-chi health club which is haunted by the murderous spectre of its owner's late wife (who was burned to death). First taking control of the club's computer-controlled circuitry, the bloodthirsty ghost then decides to possess her gay brother, who begins parading around in sis's clothes and continuing her devilish deeds. For those with a natural antipathy toward the toned-and-tanned set, this tremendously bloody film might offer a guilty chuckle or two for the strong-stomached viewer, who can watch a series of yuppie hardbodies hacked (by blender), torn (by weight machine), burnt (by tanning booth), boiled (by shower), and shredded (by flying glass)... even mauled to death by demonically-possessed carp!more

Well another movie straight from the 80's this one centers around a health spa owner who's wife has killed herself and the person running the state of the art controls just happens to be her brother who isn't to happy with the owner considering he blames him for his sisters death now people are being killed off one by one and the owner must find out whats happening before he loses all his clients and his business. i didn't find this movie all that entertaining it had some so so scenes but nothing to recommend here or brag about

Super Reviewer


Most people probably will not, but I thoroughly enjoyed Death Spa's uniquely 1980s blend of slasher and paranormal horror to create a campy but brutal and always surprising horror film that will delight fans of the period.

I was hoping that this would have the same bang for the buck that KILLER WORKOUT but alas, the witchery afoot in an automated health club doesn't have quite the same zany weirdness as I was pulling for. Still, there are some laughs to be had, I'd just suggest a double feature of this and the other film, but make sure to end strong with the other movie.

Rental for sure, with the right group of people.
