Motel Hell

This horror movie is actually more enjoyable than you'd expect. It's sort of a spoof of horror films, such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Last House on the Left. Rory Calhoun plays Vincent, an elderly farmer, who is more than what he seems behind his mask of kindness. His own personal motto is "It takes all kinds of critters to make Farmer Vincent's fritters", and he follows through on that motto quite often. So what happens to some of the people that have disappeared coming through his county? Hey, a guy's got to eat something!

Calhoun (not the most reliable of actors) offers a hysterical performance, reminding me a lot of some of the backwoods folk in Russ Meyer's films. It's made with the same technique used in any schlock flick, but it has the similar hyper-kinetic humor as Meyer, or for that matter, the Zucker Bros. (The Naked Gun). You might honestly find some enjoyment in this film, strange as it may seem, considering what breed of film this is.

My Rating = Three Stars
