I've seen this movie twice... the first time I was somewhat disappointed with it, as like some of the other reviewers, I thought there wasn't enough gore, tension, and scary moments.
Strangely enough, I really had fun watching it a second time, and here's why: instead of watching it as a horror / slasher flick, I watched it as more of a murder mystery... who is the killer? What is his / her / their motivation? In my opinion, the best moments of this movie are when various characters run through their various hypotheses regarding the killer and motive. The screenplay was well-crafted, so at any time the killer may be any one of a number of characters. Some of the dialog between characters is quite amusing.
So if you look at the cover, and think
hockey mask + chainsaw = gore, gore, gore
you'll undoubtedly be disappointed. But if you keep an open mind and play along trying to figure out the killer and motive, you should enjoy the flick. The soundtrack to the movie is excellent, considering that this movie had to be super low budget. The actors also do a nice job.

This movie is absolutly one of the funniest horror movies ever! Okay so I jumped in two parts, but I haven't had this much fun in a movie since The Evil Dead II! This is great, and yes it does rip-off Friday the 13th, Halloween, and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, but still this movie is enjoyable, and I don't see why these "die-hard" horror fans don't like it. Come on loosen up, these people know they are in a bad film, so they don't dry to take it seriously. 5 STARS Definately!!!

Bloody Murder is an absolutley brilliant film. Words couldn't say how very deeply I adored this movie. It is art. The character development is superb. The plot is suspenseful, horrifying, and electrifying. This one kept me guessing right to the end. The cinematography is unparalelled to any other I have seen...ever. Why this film didn't sweep the academy awards, I will not know. The acting is amazing. These young minds have lured me into a world of guessing and astonishment. Why they are not famous? Who knows. The characters have such interesting lives! Julie, the main character is so multi faceted, it blows me away. And the very thought of Trevor Moorehouse keeps me waking up in the middle of the night terrified, drenched in a cold sweat. The bottom line, my friends, is that Bloody Murder is incredible. Rent it immediatly and beware of the woods...

A guy named Bill and his wife run out of gas by a wooded area, Bill looks for help and unfortunately comes accross legendary serial killer Trevor Moorehouse. Trevor chases Bill and kills him with his chainsaw. 18 years have passed and five attractive young teenagers come to Camp Placid Pines to get started on their summer jobs to clean up and fix up the place before it's time for the kids to arrive. As people start to either disappear or get killed and as some of the characters behave in peculiar manners it's a big mystery as to who the killer actually is. The camp boss Patrick? The lovely and somewhat mysterious Drew? Fairly high strung Dean? The sheriff? Or could it be actually be Trevor Moorehouse?

The mystery to this movie as to who the killer will absolutely keep you guessing until the very end. The atmosphere comprises of a beautiful campsite and the isolation it brings about, the lovely cabins they sleep in, shower in, and that are for storage. The further isolation of the woods and the weapons that the killer can make out of many of the items they use for camp.

I just love the cover. It's usage of red and black, a scared face kind of reminding me of Heather's face on the Blair Witch Project cover, and best of all a big menacing serial killer with a chainsaw. It feel that this cover sums of the general horror, terror, and suspense of the movie.

The creepy score is a sweet throwback to that of the 80's slashers that inspired this movie. The score is both fun as it is haunting.

Trevor Moorehouses' look is a delicious cross between Jason Voorhees because of the hockey mask. Leatherface, because Trevor's weapon of choice is a chainsaw. And Michael Myers, because Trevor wears a dark blue jumpsuit.

The movie Bloody is a excellent flim in the movie Bloody Murder you don't find out who the killer is until the end. The movie has excellent actors and actresses in it, also its not glory but still scary but its still a very good flim.

The terrifying legend of Trevor Moorehouse is alive and well at Camp Placid Pines. Trevor Moorehouse, the masked figure who wields a chainsaw instead of a left hand, is behind a frightening game of Hide and Seek played on the first night of camp every year by campers and counselors alike. This year, however, those thrills turns into nightmares as some teenage counselors soon find out when they each disappear one by one. Leaving those left behind to figure out whom the killer really is before they become the next victim.

Often criticized for being a blatant rip-off of the Friday the 13th series, Bloody Murder does several things differently that sets it apart from that series alotogether. First and foremost, instead of being a movie that relies more on gore and tension to build it up, Bloody Murder is more like a mystery that you have to figure out. True, Bloody Murder does lack a good bit of gore and scares to be a slasher flick but, what it does do, it does very well and that's what I love most about this flick.

For a low-budget movie, it has alot of style and is fun to watch. It must've did pretty well because a followup came out in 2003 called: Bloody Murder 2-Closing Camp(which is more in line with other slasher flicks and is much better, in my opinion). At any rate; Bloody Murder, despite people criticizing it for being a Friday the 13th rip-off, is one I heartily recommend for the slasher movie fan. It's good!
