I liked it more the second time I saw it, which is a sign of quality. It's this movies overwhelming sense of fun that really works. In that respect, the movie won't disappoint. These references inaddition to those already mentioned included a captivating comedicillustration of Night of the Living Dead' 1968 and Zombie Holocaust whichwas released in Italy earlier the same year. What more could you ask for? Paul Linke is perfect as the bumbling younger brother of the two who is also the local sheriff. Rory Calhoun is best as the unforgettable Farmer Vincent who has a secret! Rory Calhoun is way too charming to be an effective villain.
Do you have playlists with Ramsay Shows? Bysparingly using shock tactics and graphic effects, Motel Hell' plays up themore satirical aspect and keeps the viewer interested and entertained. He feeds his victims to prepare them for his roadside stand. It's best that you know nothing about the story, but then again knowing that it's about a farmer running a hotel does say a lot, doesn't it. There's plenty of memorable moments and jokes, not to mention a lively climax that's probably the greatest and most humorous spoof of Texas Chainsaw' ever! Unfortunately the movie tends to drag a little shortly before the finalsequences which can be slightly off-putting. The cast is pretty good. Answers for most often asked questions are also there.
It's best taken in a non-serious mood! So yeah, I guess she's pretty much doomed to become one of Farmer Vincent's fritters. It's typical brain candy, with sardonic comments and a nerdy hero. Linke'sperformance, although the weakest of the main actors, is still enjoyable andprovides both a villain and a hero in one. The ending, while being awesome in its own way, leaves a little something to be desired. Lance Rubin offers up a surprisingly elegant music score for the movie. Instead of promoting pet population control through spaying and neutering, he eats them.
RoryCalhoun, usually a western star, is terrifically cast as thetraditional and likable Farmer Vincent who's a local demigod in hiscounty, thanks to his uniquely flavored, homemade smoked ham recipe. Nothing beats a deranged hillbilly farmer who wearsa severed hog's head to terrorize people. Thoughher penchant for much older men is a little disturbing. In my opinion, there's only one way when mixing comedy and horror actually works, and that's when the comedy is pitch-black. Farmer Vincent kidnaps unsuspecting travellers and is burying them in his garden. Yet director Connor manages to give the movie a strange seriousness that only adds to the comic feeling of it all. What more could you ask for? Maybe you can't take it all to seriously because there's also some black comedy to spot here and there and of course one full frontal and some tits here and there.
But what makes this movie especially interesting is the presence of Wolfman Jack as a preacher. There isn't very much gore to admire but the idea alone is sick enough to satisfy any horror-fan. How much do you earn from the videos on the channel? Connor managed tocapture the devilish yet fun atmosphere of the script and worked in all ofthe clever references to other movies seamlessly. In the space of 90mins we get nudity, cannibalism, amateur surgery, a hilarious 'love' story, creepy characters, a dumb policeman, a chainsaw duel, lots of gore and some very spaced out characters. There is so much great dialogue and excellent symbolism, and great acting.
The movie's pretty predictable and follows a few of the usual horror movie conventions. Kevin Connor's direction was of a particularly high standard although itseemed basic during the opening portions of the movie. I only had one problem with the motivations of Nina Axelrod's character. He reminds me way too much of Bob Barker. The story itself is fun and has a satisfying climax.
There really isn't too much gore in this film, but it grosses you out on so many levels, especially if you eat meat, which I do. Nina Axelrod supplies the sex appeal, and capably I might add. However, the highly enjoyableand eventful ten minutes more than make up for this brief lapse and roundthe film off almost perfectly. I'm sure any horror fan will find something they like about this movie, but I don't expect to find it on anyone's top-ten lists. For once, the blending of horror and comedy really works. The whole plot of planting his victims in his garden and turning them into fritters is pretty cool, and the guttural noises screeched from the garden's inhabitants is probably the most stomach-churning aspect of the movie. This is one of the best horror movies ever made! A combination between a hillbilly and a slasher horror that normally should had been directed by Tobe Hooper but Universal found the script really bad so out goes Tobe who went on to direct The Funhouse 1981.
The ending, while being awesome in its own way, leaves alittle something to be desired. . Farmer Vincent and his sister Ida run a motel on the outskirts of town famous for it's homemade meat fritters. Whatever way is easier for you. Funny, deliciously campy black comedy-horror spoof is a bit of a forgotten gem. All in all, if you love horror, and you have a sense of humor, check this one on out.
