Shhh! Do you hear that? It's an exculpatory aggregation of fear-drenched hoopla meant to shock and alarm.

"You'll shiver as you ride the river of the dead!"

"The ghoulish story of a wild motorcycle gang lost in the desert, mocking the supernatural until one-by-one they die!"

"Scream in fright as these skull-faced monsters strike blindly at living flesh and the motion picture screen flows in their blood-drenched wake!"

"In color! Rated R! Under 17 not admitted without parent!"
