Motor Home Massacre

Motor Home Massacre (2005)

A group of friends talk their buddy into commandeering his parents’ motor home and they head off for a weekend camping trip.  Once they hit the woods, they cross paths with a machete-wielding maniac and must escape or die trying.

The group finds their way into Black Creek Park – which was the site of a brutal murder the night before (or a long time ago, depending upon which bit of dialog you’re listening to in the movie) and the killer is still on the loose.  The park has been closed, though, so the group can’t get out until the morning.  Soon afterward, people start disappearing until the last few come face-to-face with the killer and must fight their way out.

That recap was both more exciting and better-written than this movie.  This is BAD.  The story is completely predictable except maybe for the very end – which is less predictable only because it makes no sense.  The acting is what you’d expect for a shot-on-video horror flick, the dialog is bad by any standard and the production is all terrible.  Wardrobe, continuity, effects, editing – they all fail on several occasions.

There’s basically nothing here that works.  It’s almost “good” enough to work as a spoof, but I really don’t think that’s what they were going for here – and if they were, then they failed to even make THAT clear.  This is a half-assed “let’s make a scary movie” effort and plenty of underfunded, independent film makers have done a lot better than this.

Stars: 1.5/5
