Hard to Die

***DISCLAIMER*** The following review is entirely my opinion. If you comment (which I encourage you to do) be respectful. If you don't agree with my opinion, that's fine. To each their own. I am just sharing my opinions and perspective. Finally, the reviews are given on a scale of 1-5. 1, of course, being terrible. 2, being not great. 3, being okay. 4, being good and 5, being epic!

Hard to Die - 2 out of 5

Hard to Die is basically Sorority House Massacre III that utilizes footage from The Slumber Party Massacre in order to tell its backstory. Many actors from Sorority House Massacre II come back to, basically, remake the movie. The story is, for the most part, the same--with a few (very few) minor changes. However, instead of some girls spending the night in their new sorority house, some employees of Acme Lingerie (I kid you not, that is the name of the business) have to stay late in order to do inventory and, after a package meant for the local museum, is opened, an evil spirit is released and the girls are in a fight for survival.

First off, I don't think I even have to mention that there is some pointless nudity in this film--the synopsis clearly sets up the pieces for that. In fact, the way the movie sets up the nudity is just plain hysterical because it did it so absolutely ridiculously, you can't help but laugh at it. Basically, the girls conveniently get dirty and are forced to take showers and wear some of the lingerie that the company has. That's right, while the girls are trying to survive an evil spirit and your typical character who is too obvious to actually be the killer, they are running around in skimpy lingerie. That fact alone is hilarious. However, believe it or not, this movie does offer up some genuine jokes making fun of the slasher genre. For example, one character, no matter the beating, stabbing and shooting he suffers from, he survives.

Gratuitous nudity aside, the film's ridiculous story (even though it's basically a re-hash of Sorority House Massacre II) and silliness of it all (intentional and unintentional jokes) is a great movie to kick back with some friends and have a good laugh. The movie is easy to make fun of when the film's real jokes fall flat so there is no reason why you won't be laughing the entire time you're watching this one.
