From the introduction:
Beta Maxx Death uses the Beta Maxx game system [...] with some modifications to give you classic movie slasher horror/haunted house genre games. It should remind you of board games like Slaughterville: The House on Haunted Hill Expansion. Of computer game[s] like the "Haunted Hotel" in Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines. Of movies like Friday 13th, Wolf Creek, Cut, and Psycho.
