This film contains all of the elements necessary to make an entertaining throwaway horror. Unfortunately they only managed to nail the throwaway part. Matthew inherits a casino from his uncle. It is supposed to be run down, which in effect means they sprayed fake cobwebs over everything. He takes his girl and four friends to help him fix it up but the Mysteria Casino has a murky past. They learn his uncle murdered five of his employees and shortly after they begin to encounter some unfriendly ghosts. There are a couple of cult horror actors in the shape of Sid Haig and Michael Berryman but I wouldn't let that tempt you because they're hardly in it. The rest of the cast were terribly amateurish and the bimbo provided the main shock of the film by keeping her clothes on. There were some decent special effects and gory moments in the film but the story and direction were so poor that they really had no impact at all. No real scares, no tension, lifeless acting performances and a stupid plot made this very dull to sit through.
