The Chronicles of Horror Movie Night: Death Spa (1988)


Posted by:

After starting in Washington D.C. nine years ago Horror Movie Night has expanded to include chapters in Austin, Dallas and Chicago. Horror’s Not Dead’s own Brian Kelley is the originator and programmer of this illustrious weekly Wednesday night tradition which features a “classic” horror film. Each week I will be reviewing/commenting on the past week’s selection so do your best to find the film, most of which have not made it past VHS, and follow along. Better yet, start your own chapter!

I will freely admit that a couple years ago I thought there existed only one wholly exercise-centric horror film. Aerobi-cide (aka Killer Workout) is a film of many great spandex clad wonders, burned boobies, and a lot of aerobics. It’s pure, delicious cheese and it was great to revisit it when we watched it a few weeks back for Horror Movie Night (you can read my write-up at this column’s old home if you so desire). Luckily I was wrong and the fitness themed slasher genre would not end there. We faithful HMN elite would be subjected to another fine entry by the name of Death Spa (aka Wtich Bitch)! This has less aerobics than it’s predecessor, a few less laughs, but some much better death scenes and a whole lot of wonderful.
