Though this movie passes the Bechdel test, it is only by the barest of technicalities. The main villain, a succubus, says a few words to one of her victims, who happens to be female, before killing her. The victim responds before being killed. Both of them have names in the credits. (Beth and Andie)

All in all, this is a very bro movie. The women are present almost entirely as decoration.

Egalitarian credentials aside, it is a fantastic low-budget cheesy horror movie.

That's really interesting. I'd like some clarification on this: does a character count as being named if the name is only given in the credits?
