Motel Hell (1980)
Director: Kevin Connor
Main Stars: Rory Calhoun, Paul Linke, Nancy Parsons, Nina Axelrod, Wolfman Jack
Storyline: A farmer and his sister kidnap people to plant at their farm and sell as meat.
Review (Spoils): Farmer Vincent (Rory Calhoun) traps and kidnaps travellers and brings them back to the farm to plant. He mixes their meat with that of his pigs and sells it and makes a nice profit. His sister Ida (Nancy Parsons) is a couple eggs short of dozen in the head and plays along with it all. The two of them run around killing people as his brother the police chief Bruce (Paul Linke) does not suspect a thing.
Farmer Vincent traps the young beautiful Terry (Nina Axelrod) and takes her as his own. (the weird part is she has no issue with this at all) and this bring Bruce to snoop as he loves her and finds out the Vincent is going to marry her. The whole cannibal family history and recipe unfolds.
We have pigs, chainsaws, blondes with whips, the beautiful Nina Axelrod, chezzie liners, gardens of heads, pig head masks and of course wet white t-shirts. What is there not to love of this film?
Rating: This film is basically a horror pun of such classic as Texas Chainsaw Massacre and maybe even some Last House on the Left. The film is fun and not to be taken serious as some of the actions of the character is not realistic at all. I personally love the finale chainsaw fighter and the pig head is a nice touch. For some reason this silly film holds close to my horror heart as a classic. Remember as “It takes all kinds of critters to make Farmer Vincent’s Fritters”.
