A shamelessly artless horror movie whose senseless story - a girl inherits a spooky, seedy hotel which just happens to have one of the Seven Doors of Hell in its cellar - is merely an excuse for a poorly connected series of sadistic tableaux of torture and gore. Suspense takes second place to repulsion as faces melt into bubbling, psychedelic disfigurements, crumbling zombies appear everywhere for no apparent reason other than to crumble a little more, and characters sporting strange green contact lenses stare ominously into the camera.
