247 Degrees F was based on a true story... in the sense that some people got stuck in a cooling sauna for 10 hours. That's sort of where the excitement ends for the true story. The movie blows it up to an extremely dramatic level as movies do; having someone die, the heat never stops climbing, and the people inside are kind of ridiculous. Whoever wrote this story doesn't seem to like women, as the two girls trapped in the sauna are irrational, annoying, and 1000% useless. The one guy is the only person trying to get them out of there, sacrificing himself in many ways to get them free, while the girls complain, whine, and do nothing but hurt them all. I think it could have been an interesting concept if the characters weren't so unbearable.
Nothing is logical in the film. How does nobody have a cell phone? Or carries it on them and then the way they get locked in was so ridiculous and how they escape too...the worst part about the film. Let's try the sauna...okay too hot, jump in the lake...too wet, back in the sauna...one of the characters says he needs to piss...but is so drunk he trips over stuff allowing a random ass ladder to lodge between the door and some shelf or something causing the other three to be tortured in the sauna until the end of the movie. Dumbest plot ever? It is. Creativity doesn't exist anymore in horror. The genre's is as dead to white people as hip-hop is to black folks.
What's even weirder about this film is the reunion of the adult Michael Myers as the savior of the film along with the girl who played his childhood babysitter, Laurie Strode. Why they are both again in another "shitty" horror film is beyond me. Besides the beginning of the reboot, I liked films.
