A day before Halloween, a group of friends decide to spend Halloween in an old haunted house for some sex and partying. Of course, a killer happens to be around to slay these teenagers one by one.

Our thoughts:
This is the first movie I've seen from Terror Optics. They also made the films "Goregasm" and "Attack of the Cockface Killer", two films that I decided never to watch after speaking to Preston. I have the feeling that they might be as bad as "Stabbed In The Face" is. Now, why would I go and watch a movie that clearly seems bad if you glance at the cover or read about it online. I actually didn't buy this, but got it from my girlfriend. I gave her a wishlist of some films, and like always I add a few titles I haven't heard of because it's fun and if you're not the one who's paying anyway, it doesn't hurt. Why did I add this to the wishlist? Honestly, it was the title.

With a terribly clichéed plot and a whole bunch of annoying teens we don't care about, this slasher movie brings absolutely nothing new to the table. Teens set out to have a Halloween party in an old haunted house and a serial killer happens to be near. That's all there is to it. They tried to build good characters by having many of them, and everyone seemed to have their "thing" (virgin, hardrocker, jock, stoner, you know the drill) and the killer is just a guy who kills. No mask, no deformity, and whatever else you find in slashers. But that doesn't make this slasher any less cliché, and there are only two things worth while with this film; the kills and the chicks.

Plenty of naked chicks in here, and good looking ones at that. After each naked scene, we're just waiting for the next. It's not explicit stuff, but atleast there's titties and bush, and plenty of full body shots. And then we have the killings.. Blood and gore, yes. But the movie is really dark and you'll be lucky if you'll find any moneyshots in the killing scenes. Seeing how the gore isn't of high quality either, it's just there to enjoy rather than cringe at. Slit throats, cut-off nipples, stabs, decapitations. Like I said, it's mostly bad lit and you won't be able to see it very well, but maybe that's good when it doesn't look too good in the first place.

I don't recommend you watch this unless you're a fan of stupid, clichéed, poorly-acted, bad lit, indie slasher that's barely worth watching even though it has nudity and gore. It feels like it's all over the place with the characters and by the end of it I actually couldn't remember or care who was who. Oh, and it has a terrible punk soundtrack.

Positive things:
- Girls, girls, girls.
- Blood and gore.
- A girl gets stabbed in the face.
Negative things:
- Acting, plot, lighting, soundtrack, characters, the killer.

Gore: 3/5
Nudity: 3/5
Story: 1/5
Effects: 2/5
Comedy: 1/5
