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!

I liked it because I get the humor. The acting was pretty bad and the pacing was slow, so if you have a short attention span, this isn't for you. When the jokes do happen they are very funny and worth the wait. This is one of those movies where you either love it or hate it.

BRUTAL MASSACRE
A COMEDY

I am a big fan of mockumentaries with my favorite probably being “Fear of a Black Hat” off of the top of my head. So when I found out about this one I had to get it. It is a mockumentary about the making of a horror film and also has Brian O’Halloran of “Clerks” fame in it. It is the perfect mixture of many things I like so I knew I had to have it. When I was finally able to get a DVD copy years ago my brother and I popped it in and watched.

Harry Penderecki [David Naughton] is a horror film icon {on the B level that is} with films like “I’ll Take the Ring Back…And the Finger Too”, “People Pesticide” among many others. He is ready to make his comeback and thinks he has just the film to do it, “Brutal Massacre”. This film is a straight forward slasher flick with everything you would want, naked women, blood, guts and everything in between. Of course like any low budget horror flick the problems on set may be a little scarier than the actual film.

This movie is hilarious and everyone in it plays their parts perfectly. Now like I said I came for Dante, I mean Brian, but I ended up loving everyone. Of course he is excellent here as the AD for the film, but everyone is great. Still I think the MVP actually is Naughton as the filmmaker trying to score one more hit. This dude was hilarious and was perfect for the part. Of course writer/director Stevan Mena did a great job here. His movie is very funny and made me a bigger fan of his. His previous film “Malevolence” was an excellent indie horror film as was its follow up “Bereavement” [which I think was one of my best reviews]. I can’t wait for “Killer: Malevolence 3”.

The special features for this DVD are trailers, deleted scenes and the hilarious “Making Of” feature.

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!

I love both of Stevan Mena's other films, MALEVOLENCE, and BEREAVEMENT. They are utterly bleak, "everyone-is-doomed", retro-style horror films. After watching such bleak, soul-flattening fare, it's nice to sit down and take in a comedy. BRUTAL MASSACRE fits the bill, poking fun at the horror genre, while jabbing at the incredible bull$#!t involved in getting a movie made. I enjoyed seeing all of the familiar faces from iconic movies, in their (mostly) bumbling character roles. Gunnar Hansen was my favorite, as the crazed, Nam vet w/ the thousand-yard stare! If you've been watching a lot of dark material, then I recommend BRUTAL MASSACRE for some comic relief...

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.
