This movie is not one plot, but a series of plots. There is at least one female character in each one, but there is only one instance where two female characters speak to each other; perhaps two lines. Lots of nudity. Terrible.

Berekiah disagreed with the rating and said:
You may not like it, but I think it passes. There are (at least) two instances:
1) At the end of the segment "Second Honeymoon" the camera shows Stephanie and the other woman leaving the motel as Stephanie asks if the footage has been erased. It's a bit dubious as the other woman does not reply and, technically, she isn't a named character.
2) In the segment "Tuesday the 17th" the two female characters (Wendy and Samantha) talk to each other about the previous murders.
