Mountaintop Motel Massacre (1986)
Reading the title says it all. This film feeds on the brutality of things and it really worked to a certain point. It came off like a Friday The 13th/ Sleepaway Camp film at first, so I was really digging it. The style, the kills, the creepiness. But after awhile you realize that the story didn't matter because they never went into anything, it just became a bloodbath and a body count movie and that's what ruined it for me.
Synopsis taken from IMDb
After several years in an insane asylum, Evelyn, the keeper of the Mountaintop Motel, is released and resumes doing business. She kills her young charge out of anger, but convinces the police it was an accident - and pushed into insanity, she then proceeds to target her guests, first by releasing vermin into their rooms, but then by using her trusty sickle...
I was disapointed in this film but still liked it due to it just having that 80's feel to it. Man, I miss 80's horror.
2 stars for me. Trailer below.
