Juvenile offenders cleaning up a trashed art deco hotel are stalked by a bald psycho (wrestler Glen Jacobs) in this routine slasher. Part of a coed work-release program, the kids are lodged at the hotel and immediately pair off for sex, which proves the juvenile justice system isn't as bad as some people say. The gilt-and-grime setting is eerily atmospheric, and screenwriter Dan Madigan has a nicely sick sense of humor (one kid doing time for animal activism is hung upside down and eaten by hungry dogs). Gregory Dark directed. R, 84 min.
