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.
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.Read more ›
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!

"Bloody Murder" is a bloody awful attempt at a slasher flick. This is a generic and formulaic attempt at an artificial slasher flick if I've ever seen one. Read morePublished on August 28, 2007 by HorrorMan
