How this movie is it gore, entertaining or boring and worth?
it's a fun typical 80's slasher, make sure u get the unrated version, both versions were released on vhs, get the 89min version.............
I've always liked it, simply because I was a huge fan of Shari Shattuck. The basic plot is very similar to Killer Workout (a.k.a. Aerobicide) if you're familiar with that one.
I have the old Unrated VHS and also the Dragon R2 (PAL) DVD under it's alternate title Witch Bitch, which is also the unrated cut.
the Japan Shock disc is also unrated and is probably the same as the Dragon release, though beware, image quality = fullscreen VHS
To my know, in Killer Workout killer was a human and what about Death Spa?
By the way, Dragon R2 release any good? I think about get this one, but I don't know worthwhile this flick or not.
Get the VHS, that is the best looking print out there. I've had both R2 DVDs and they are crap. The best DVD is existance is the DVD-R I made from the VHS.
the killer is a spirit that posesses a certain member of the staff
Thx, but I doubt what I can get good VHS print.
See if this person will ship to you.
Thx for link, i think about it. But DVD I probably get all the same.
I can vouch for this.
Death Spa has a supernatural slant, but the whole "murders in the gym/studio" theme is there.
The Dragon R2 has a somewhat dark transfer. After I initially altered the brightness/contrast it looked about similar to a VHS.
There's also another Swedish or Dutch DVD out there as well, but I don't have a clue as to its quality.
IIRC, there is a really cool
glass/mirror exploding through someone's body scene.
The Norwegian DVD is identical to the German.
this movie needs a proper R1 dvd release.
Finally saw this sucker - it was alright, but it doesn't compare to KILLER WORKOUT (AEROBICIDE) or even FATAL GAMES and MURDEROCK. My main gripe with it is that the plot is really melodramatic, there isn't much fun to be had, none of those goofy asides or honest bits of character that you usually see in slashers. Not even much cheese, and that's saying a lot with all the aerobics scenes throughout. The "Witch Bitch" at the end was also pretty lame - zero personality, just one ravaging buzz kill. That said, some of the kills were nicely sappy, and just seeing Ken Foree randomly show up every other scene was awesome. He had a mustache, too. To complete his trifecta of awesomeness, he also has that amazing scene where he challenges a guy to a swim race and then cheap shots him before moving ahead. The movie is pretty well shot, and initially the cinematography and the Foree is what kept me interested, but by the end of the short runtime I was pretty stoic. Passable, but doesn't hold a candle to the shaved head, burned booby craziness of KILLER WORKOUT.

OK I just watched this for a second time in over ten years. It is the Dragon DVD version. So is this version cut or not. I keep on reading that the MPI VHS mentioned here is uncut. But is the Dragon version uncut. I can deal with the less than stellar picture quality of the Dragon disc.
Thanks in advance.
Yes, the Dragon DVD is fully uncut. Nothing is missing from it that was in the uncut VHS.
Awesome. Thanks for clearing that up, Katatonia. I read somewhere that the Dragon disc was cut, which I didn't believe.
I love Death Spa and finding the Uncut VHS at a Used Video Shop years ago in FLA was one of my Holy Grails in my Video Collection!! It's a Wild and Gory and Fun Movie!! I love how they kind of throw everything at you and some of the Death Scenes are pretty Gory!! My only gripe with the Film was that there is not enough of the Hot and Sexy Chelsea Field!! She is on the back of the Video Cover in a Hot Outift and I thought she was going to be in the Movie much more than she is!! I'm a Big Fan of Chelsea Field from her Horror Movies like Prison, A Passion To Kill, and Dust Devil and I was hoping for more of her in this Movie!! Other than that, I really enjoy the Movie and I'm happy to have my Uncut MPI VHS sitting on the shelf in my Movie Collection!!
still not sure who owns the rights to this for the usa i thought it was darksky films since they are MPI and my unrated vhs is MPI i suppose if they did own this it would be out by now unless they don't have a good quality unreated print or something
