Editorial Reviews

David Naughton of An American Werewolf in London stars as famed horror director Harry Penderecki whose career has been plagued by violent mishaps and critics’ attacks. But when Harry decides to shoot his comeback movie, he’ll do it with a crew that includes a stressed assistant director (Brian O’Halloran of Clerks), his foul-mouthed production manager (Ellen Sandweiss of The Evil Dead), an oddball cinematographer (Gerry Bednob of The 40 Year Old Virgin), his loyal grip (Ken Foree of Dawn of the Dead) a deranged Vietnam vet (Gunnar Hansen of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre) and more. There’s gratuitous nudity, graphic gore and malfunctioning toilets, plus appearances by ‘Ladies Of The Evil Dead’ Betsy Baker and Theresa Tilly, Fangoria editor Tony Timpone and Master Of Horror Mick Garris in this wild ‘mockumentary’ about a low-budget production that becomes a BRUTAL MASSACRE!

Its a fine line between so bad its good and just so bad.
Robert C. Engman
I am a die-hard horror fan and was really looking forward to this movie when I heard about it.
I have to admit that I really thought this was just plain boring.

David Naughton (AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON) as Harry Penderecki, Brian O'Halloran (CLERKS) as Jay, Gerry Bednob (THE 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN) as Hanu, Ken Foree (DAWN OF THE DEAD) as Carl, Ellen Sandweiss (THE EVIL DEAD) as Natalie, Vincent Butta as Bert Campbell and Gunnar Hansen (THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 1974) as Krenshaw stars in BRUTAL MASSACRE: A COMEDY. Also starring: Billy Lake as Shanksmith, Emily Brownell as Amy, M.J. Dibennedetti as Tanya, Bill Sorice as Oscar and Hiro Masuda as Honda. This movie has funny gags including funny moments like when Jay walks out of the basement & the spider is on his back and he screams. I also love the scene when the crew is trying to film BRUTAL MASSACRE but the shooting range is on the other side of the filming location and everyone runs in total panic. One last scene I love to death, it's in the deleted scenes though. Carl and Hanu fight each other when they have to share a hotel bedroom. Some funny quotes in the scene include when Hanu says; "I'm gonna "F" with you now!" Then Carl says; "You're gonna "F" with me? What's wrong with you? WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU?! POLICE! POLICE! POLICE!" These scenes are hysterical and this is the first movie I watched all the way through when I got it in the mail. In at least 3 years, this is the first movie I saw all the way through. I give this film a 5 out of 5 star rating!

There are two types of movie fans. The first is the fan who goes to the movies at least once a month, enjoys the film and perhaps has a favorite actor or director. Then there are the die hard film fans. The type of fan who must have every movie in a series, bad or not. The type of fan who sees almost any and everything out. The type of fan who watches something like horror films whether they're bad ones or not. Unfortunately, I am in the second group.

And with that in mind, I just sat down to watch a movie made for fans, about fans and more importantly about the film makers who make movies for those fans. The movie is BRUTAL MASSACRE and it is hilarious. Perhaps not to everyone but to film fans, definitely.

The story revolves around a low budget horror director named Harry Penderecki (David Naughton), a director noted for his terrible horror films. His credits include films like BOWEL MOVEMENT, THE READING DEAD, PEOPLE PESTICIDE and the infamous I'LL TAKE THE RING BACK...AND THE FINGER TOO. Yes, Harry was a one hit wonder who somehow has managed to continue working. And we are now privy to a behind the scenes look at his latest feature being made, BRUTAL MASSACRE.

The film has problems from day one as Harry travels to different potential investors trying to get money just to make the movie. The end result is a wealthy cowboy who feels that the biggest thing needed to make a successful horror film is breasts. With no one else to turn to, Harry accepts his terms and the production begins.

Troubles never cease to end on Harry's films. As the documentary of the film continues, we learn about the different deaths on the sets of Harry's previous efforts.

Brutal Massacre is basically what you would get if Christopher Guest attempted to make a satiric look at the horror movie industry, only the chances are he would have much better success. Despite it's flaws though, Brutal Massacre is better than the sum of it's parts, and delivers a fair amount of laughs regardless. The film revolves around a documentary being shot around hack horror director Harry Penderecki (David Naughton of An American Werewolf in London) as he attempts to make a slasher flick that will put him back on top of the horror world. Sadly, things don't go as planned, resulting in a series of backfires, accidents, mishaps, and hijinks. Along for the ride are Penderecki's long suffering crew, which features Clerks' Brian O'Halloran and Evil Dead vet Ellen Sandweiss. Horror vets Ken Foree (from the original Dawn of the Dead) and Gunnar "Leatherface" Hansen are here as well, and while there are some nice odes to the horror flicks of yesteryear, the film as a whole just doesn't take off the way it should. It isn't nearly as funny or clever as it thinks it is, but for what it is, Brutal Massacre is worth a look at the very least for horror fans that don't mind having their tongue planted firmly in cheek.

BRUTAL MASSACRE is Stevan Mena's ode to the Horror genre, its filmmakers, and its fans. Coming off of the underground success of his Slasher hit MALEVOLENCE, Mena decided to move on to Comedy, using the "Mockumentary" shooting style made popular in The Office to deliver his story. This film-within-a-film finds Horror director Harry Penderecki on the shoot of his comeback picture, BRUTAL MASSACRE, where anything that can go wrong, does go wrong. With no money, less talent, and limited time, this rag-tag team of filmmakers must come together to finish the project and save their careers! BRUTAL MASSACRE boasts an impressive line-up of familiar genre faces and an incredibly witty script that falls just short of genius. David Naughton (AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON) leads as the inspired but utterly helpless Harry Penderecki, and is joined by Ellen Sandweiss and Besty Baker (THE EVIL DEAD), Gunnar Hansen (TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE), Ken Foree (DAWN OF THE DEAD), and many others. Mena uses the light tone to make clever strikes at the film industry, commenting on many of the toughest issues facing filmmakers that are forced to compromise their integrity and vision in order to earn financial backing. At the same time, he also pokes fun at directors' overwhelming sense of self-importance and pretentious attitudes towards their films, which is best shown when Harry is found deflecting accusations of misogyny and gratuitous violence with meaningless psychobabble. Though the writing is very smart, the timing and dry deliveries often undermine the humor, but genre fans will enjoy seeing their idols in sillier performances. While it may not be perfect, BRUTAL MASSACRE is an entertaining reflection on the genre that is sure to appeal to the Horror audiences that it was intended for.
