    Yeah, that impromptu judo fight outside takes the cake. I love how the girl just takes one glance at it and just walks away as if it were no biggie that two of her coworkers are trying to take each other's heads off!

    I own the R2 DVD under the alternate "Aerobicide" title. It's bad to say the least, but infinitely enjoyable.

    I have the VHS edition of KILLER WORKOUT. Just watched it last summer. What a cheezy-good treat.

    That's a different movie though, otherwise known as Death Spa.

    Yeah, doesn't Death Spa have just a picture of an ass on the cover of their R2 release? Haha.

    Which exercise slasher movie had the gym called Rhonda's Workout, but the staff t-shirts were spelled Rhondas Workout?? Whatever it was it was, it was a great cheesy movie I haven't seen since the late 80's.

    The Netherlands DVD does have a picture of a "bare ass" on the cover.

    The German DVD from Dragon under the Witch Bitch title has a pretty cool looking cover though.

    That's KILLER WORKOUT. I've contemplated making a shirt like that, but the reference might be too obscure. Especially with typo. ;)

    Oh my god, the sheer awesomeness of the soundtrack has got me dizzy. I love the tacky, cheesily literal "Woman on Fire". Does anyone know if a soundtrack is available, or can anyone direct to an mp3 of "Woman on Fire"?

    Otherwise, I agree with the statement made by Agent Z in his spoiler - they are indeed woefully underused.
     
  16. That excessive exercise can cause immediate death. Death by exercise has some small basis in fact. Water intoxication can result from prolific sweating (producing electrolyte losses) combined with consumption of large amounts of plain water and insufficient replenishment of electrolytes, especially salt and potassium (e.g. when running a marathon). It is also possible to die from a heart attack or similar affliction if overly intense exercise is performed by someone who is not at an appropriate level of fitness for that particular activity. A doctor should always be consulted before any radical changes are made to a person's current exercise routine. Rhabdomyolysis is also a risk. Other common dangers may occur from extreme overheating or aggravation of a physical defect, such as a thrombosis or aneurysm.

    OMG I just watched this and must say, it was way better than I expected.

    About the DVD:

    The dialog mix is awful, I had to constantly be turning up and down the volume so I can understand something.

    The image quality is decent, this was clearly taken from a VHS.

    Needs a proper release!!

    About the movie:

    I was expecting cheese and cheese is what I got. After the opening sequence immediately thought it had potential to be a new classic (for me) like Troll 2 or Pieces. Even though the music had me on my nerves at first, cause I'd always hated this kind of 80's gym music, then I started paying attention to the lyrics everything was better from there. The massive shots of T&A had me rooting for more nudity, which wasn't enough IMHO. In fact, I thought this movie was almost a family friendly slasher, I thought it would be more gruesome, hell, it didn't even had a sex scene (rare for an 80's slasher) which made me think these guys were going for a mainstream audience.
    It had of course everything you want in a horror movie of this kind: bad acting, cute girls, an outstanding soundtrack (it definitely plays a big part), bad fighting sequences, T&A (although most of it is under a tights), a wink at the camera...absolutely recommended if ones feeling in the mood for a good laugh at the expense of a horror movie. It might even scare you a bit, a tiny bit.

    I own the UK dvd and honestly, I wasn't that impressed. It went over like a fart in church to me.
