Product Description

You really are what you eat with Farmer Vincent’s smoked meat in this creepy horror yarn that ’packs a punch that goes way beyond mere terror’ (Boxoffice). Vincent’s popular products contain a special ingredient that the psychotic farmer and his sister would literally kill to keep a secret! Starring Rory Calhoun (Angel), Nancy Parsons (Porky’s), Nina Axelrod (Time Walker, Cobra) and John Ratzenberger (Cheers), and directed by Kevin Connor (From Beyond The Grave, At The Earth’s Core), this darkly funny flick ’just might be your cup of meat’ (L.A. Herald Examiner)!

Review

This Blu-Ray edition from Scream Factory features a strong transfer with natural film grain and bold color reproduction, and audio that nicely balances the clever dialogue and creepy score from Lance Rubin. The wealth of bonus features are incredibly impressive, featuring insightful documentaries and featurettes that fans will adore. --Doctor Macabre, August 13th 2014

    Veteran actor Rory Calhoun stars as the delightfully fiendish Farmer Vincent in a deliciously ghoulish tale of the macabre that has now become a cult classic. "Meat is meat, and a man's gotta eat!" That was always granny's philosophy. And that's the way folks still think over at the Motel Hello (the o is burnt out on the sign) where Farmer Vincent mixes up his special blend of smoked meats. Heck, everybody in the county just loves Farmer Vincent's sausages and hams there's nothing quite like 'em. But pray tell , what's that we've heard about strangers just passing by Vincent's motel? And what are those odd things planted in vincent's "secret garden" that he only tends to at night? And, gosh, what are those strange carcasses Vincent has hangin' in the smokehouse? The Motel Hello is open for business folks. But if you're asked to stay for dinner, you may want to think twice!! Go rent motel hell at your local video store and just sit back and watch trust me you will be happy you did!!

    Funny thing that Farmer Vincent. Makes the best jerky miles around, yet he don't seem to own a single head of cattle. Yup. Yes indeed. Funny thing that...

    This is a delightful organic salad of classic American horror tropes. It is clear, especially when you consider the year it was released, that it owes a basically existential debt to Tobe Hooper's groundbreaking Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It at once attempts to up the ante by offering original and perverse atrocities that make this as genuine a piece of torture porn as anything in the Hostel or Saw franchises, and on the other hand significantly lowers the seriousness by adding a level of Don Knots type comedy that still exists in quality horror movies today, e.g. Nathan Fillion in Slither (2006).

    Just as long as its clear that of the two films, Hooper's is far superior, I have no qualms about giving this one five stars.

    The term Cult Classic was invented to describe films just like this. I still can't decide whether it's the funniest horror film I've ever seen or the most horrific comedy, but its refusal to fit either of those categories is what makes it so memorable. The central concept of "Meat's meat, and a man's gotta eat" is hardly original (Soylent Green, for example) but the way Farmer Vincent selects and prepares his livestock is so wonderfully macabre and hilarious at the same time. Buy this movie! I can guarantee that you've never seen anything like it, but you'll probably want to see it again and again.

    Crazy, funny, campy, bloody, and just plain wacky! There's a reason why the meat that comes from Farmer Vincent and his nutty sister is so good. It's, you know, not from regular farm animals at all!

    OK. It's Motel Hell. It's a vintage horror classic. I get it. But, I can't give it 5 stars just because Im autopiloting a review based on a film's cult following. That said, you gotta see this one if you are a true horror fan. And you have to keep in mind this is light-hearted dark comedy horror - not "The Shining" or "Rosemary's Baby" or anything truly epic and classic as far as the horror genre.

    If nothing else, the human head-garden is worth the price of admission. :)

    Well, its another Scream Factory release suffering from the kind of authoring issues that a large amount of their previous releases have displayed...we're talking digital artifacting here, folks. Its everywhere on this release, but there is enough impressive detail present to balance out the negative aspects of the middle of the road transfer. It is obviously an upgrade from the mgm disc from a few years back, but the theory floating around is that this disc is comprised of material culled from an older HD remaster for the Monsters HD channel in 2005. It certainly looks that way, but it is the best it has looked and might be the best we will see for awhile.
    The film alone is enjoyable enough to overlook the disc's shortcomings and boasts a nice amount of bonus material, one department in which Scream excels, so its worth the price of admission.
    It would be great to see a remaster drawn from the original source material, maybe one day.

    Motel Hell has to go down as a cult favorite. It is a fun horror movie to sit down and watch. It was before the comedy-horror film genre of today, but was part of what started it. At times you will cringe and at other times you will laugh. I had seen the movie mentioned a few times on horror sites and saw small clips of the movie. I decided to see what it was about and I have to say it was good for its time. Rory Calhoun is great in the role. He blends country innocence and serial killer well in his role as Farmer Vincent Smith. Wolfman Jack was hilarious as the TV preacher. The garden was really something different. Didn't expect to see that. If you are a fan of horror, need a laugh or are looking for something different then give Motel Hell a try. And remember "It takes a lot of critters, to make farmer Vincent's fritters."

    A throwback to my childhood that scared me enough to make me want to search it out again, Motel Hell combines some genuinely creepy moments with a helping of dark comedy.
    Saying the movie is about cannibalism isn't a spoiler, everyone will guess the secret to Farmer Vincent's "fritters" upfront. Instead, the writers save the surprises for the viewers in the bizarre methods Farmer Vincent uses to prepare his "product." It's evident the scares were largely influenced by Texas Chainsaw Massacre, but at the same time the writers intended to provide enough humor to appeal to the drive-in crowd.
    Amid all the madness, the late Rory Calhoun and Nancy Parsons deliver straight and serious performances. The rest of the cast, well... acting was never a major requirement of horror movies. Look for John Ratzenberger, aka Cliff Claven, in a bit role as a drummer - you wouldn't even recognize him unless you knew upfront.
    Descriptions such as "masterpiece" and "classic" may be a little strong. The entire movie feels like it was done on the cheap and the gore can't hold a candle to the ultra-realistic violence of today's horror movies (it did get banned in West Germany, however.) Consider the double-feature DVD that includes the thriller "Deranged."
    You may think twice about buying that next piece of beef jerky.
