A team of young renovators (DJ Perry, Tommy Lynch, Shawn Rougeron, Dean Mauro, Nathalie Ben-Kely, Tracilyn Jones, Charlene May, Noel Allison) decide to spend the night before they start working in the very same hotel they are going to fix that has been abandoned for 20 years and is said to be haunted - just for fun, pretty much. Thing is, only a few days ago, Donald (Anthony Hornus) has been released, a bankrobber who has spent the last 20 years in prison and who has now secured the help of two cutthroats (Johnny Dark, Michael Rivers) to search the hotel for the loot his accomplice has hidden in the hotel back then.

At first, Donald and company do everything they can do stay out of the hair of the renovators, but eventually, Donald, who hasn't had a woman for 20 years, stumbles upon scantily-clad Lisa (Tracilyn Jones) on her own and tries to rape her ... only to kill her in the process. Our young heroes panic, quite understandably, but get it together quickly enough to trace down and capture Donald and friends. Then though they have to realize someone has locked them in inside the hotel, and there's a mad masked killer on the loose - and our heroes die like flies.

Things go from bad to worse when the masked killer is revealed to be Allan (DJ Perry), very much the leader of the renovators, and he's the insane nephew of Donald, too. So now the two of them open the hunting season on our heroes and Donald's friends - one of which (Johnny Dark) turns out to be the very cop who has arrested Donald all the while back - alike. And before the day is over, the plot twists and turns quite a few times more ...


Basically, Deadly Renovations is pretty much your standard slasher. Now it might have a great many more surprises and twists and turns than your usual genre fare, but when it comes to the actual narrative buildup and the execution of suspense scenes, it pretty much follows a standard formula - which is very much why most of the characters feel like perfect cannon fodder.

That's not to say Deadly Renovations is a bad movie though, it's solid and even exciting genre entertainment, plenty of isolated sequences really kick ass, and at least all the villains are expertly cast. True though, this film will probably never be regarded as a genre classic (though very few slashers actually are), but at least during watching it manages to keep you on the edge of your seat.
