Review: With a name like Trailer Park of Terror and an MPAA rating including "sadistic horror violence and torture, sexual content, pervasive language and drug use," it didn't take much suggestion to make me check out this little flick. . . then I found out my DVD had the unrated cut and I couldn't hold back any longer. And, boy, am I glad that I didn't wait. When I first heard of the film and read the synopsis, I was expecting a 2001 Maniacs-style shlock comedy-horror. To my pleasant surprise, the film actually took a much more horror-focused approach, leaving the comedy to be a simple mood-lightener at times and not a major part of the tone. Visually, the film is great. It, thankfully, does not have the cheap `shot-on-video' look that so many low-budget films have these days. Also, the gore is very good and goes above what I would have expected for a film like this (including one particular scene that almost forced me to turn away in disgust). The script is a terrific blend of horror & humour and goes beyond the typical low-budget zombie flicks we've been seeing for so long. It's more than just "rise from the dead and eat the living" here: The zombies are more intelligent and much, MUCH more violent (imagine House of 1000 Corpses with zombies. . . other than Rob & Sheri). While, sometimes, `smart' (or as smart as undead trailer-park residents can be) zombies can be a bit of a turn off for zombie fans, it definitely works well here and should not be overlooked for that reason.Read more ›
Definitely watch the mini movie at the end. It's hillarious!
By far the most pleasant surprise of the week's movie watching, Trailer Park of Terror is another comic book adaptation that managed to get no distribution in an age where the comic book adaptation is king (cf. My review of The Dead One a few months ago). Goldmann's last feature effort was the awful Toby Keith vehicle Broken Bridges, and to be honest, I wasn't expecting a great deal. Goldmann's continuing fascination with bad country music continues here (there's a Trace Adkins cameo), but other than that, this was a very fun ride.
High-school beauty queen Norma (Nichole Hiltz, recently of the TV series In Plain Sight) is stuck in the trailer park, but she sees the possibility of an escape: she's found herself a boyfriend from outside, and hopes she can use him as her ticket out. Until, that is, some of the less savory inhabitants of the place decide he's not good enough for their little Norma and show him the door. Permanently. Enraged, Norma makes a deal with the devil (Adkins), who gives her a sawed-off shotgun. Oh, yeah. Fast-forward a few years, to an idealistic youth pastor (Matthew del Negro, probably best-known at this point for a minor role on The Sopranos) and the six charges with whom he's spent the last week in a woodland retreat. After an accident during a rainstorm, they find themselves at the same trailer park, now deserted except for Norma, who invites them in for coffee and scary stories, and insists they spend the night...
There seem to be two types of people who watch this movie.Read more ›
This time the unlucky victims are a van load of foul-talking teens and a counselor heading for Jesus Camp-too bad they never made it because if anyone needed Jesus Camp....Hmmmm..let's see... they all use the f-bomb, one girl is a goth, one kid likes looking at nudie pictures and there's a couple who have sex at the drop of a condom. Even the counselor has problems and he is always making the sign of the cross when he has a wicked thought-needless to say he makes the sign of the cross a lot.
The movie is gruesome and gory-one poor guy has his chest skinned to make jerky-then he is lowered into a giant fry-o-later alive and becomes barbeque. One of the killings was new for me-a girl rips open a guys back with her feet.
So, if you like movies with floozies, rednecks, cannibals and ghosts and lots of blood and gore then make a visit to this trailer park.
