Scream Bloody Murder (2004) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
It’s rare to see a film from just 9 years ago that looks like its intended format was betamax. But that’s what we have here. Sid loves this feature as it adds to the B that’s why we bumped this one up a star. We selected the flick because it was obviously an awful ripoff of the Friday the 13th series. Quick tangent: We have yet to see the remake of F13 and are viewing it today. The review will be forthcoming.
As we already know, the killer is a Jason ripoff but with two major differences: One, his weapon of choice is a chainsaw hand. Yeah you read that right. Two, besides his mutant hand, he is not the least bit physically imposing. Sid in all his 3’9 purple ya know glory could take this guy. Like F13, the targets are kids at a camp. These kids are the worst actors, not to mention the lamest, whimpiest geeks. The Jason ripoff is summoned by a campfire game called…you guessed it “Bloody Murder.” Once the killings start the question is obviously whodunit? Was it Bobby “The Brain” Heenan’s brother? Maybe you can tell us because we couldn’t make it all the way through this one. It was that terrible.
Clearly this IS NOT a flick we would have enjoyed in the glory days. And let’s let a short Drive-In Totals illustrate why:
5 things that were supposed to be scary but were hilarious instead.
1 Box of Pop-Tarts that sparked an ill-fated 7-11 run.
