THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW BARBECUE!!!!!
on 20 August 2002
Motel Hell is one of the many 'Texas Chain Saw' clones which hit the screens during the late '70's and early eighties.
Central premise has farmer Colhquon planting his motel guests up to their necks,cutting out their vocal chords,slaughtering them and smoking their flesh which is then sold as barbecued meat.
This effort is slightly above other cheaply made 'Texas' clones,and can't quite decide whether it wants to be taken seriously,or as a black comedy.The final chainsaw duel is worthy of note with the demented farmer (wearing a pigs head) and
the local sheriff going at it.Painfully slow in places,the appearance of Nina Axlerod taking a bath does somewhat bring the interest up a notch,but she obviously wasn't hired for her thespian skills.
While this has some flavour,it sure could use a lot more spice!!!
