Did You Know?


Ray Dennis Steckler's original cut of "The Chooper" was only 60 minutes long. The film could not be distributed unless it was a minimum of 70 minutes, so Steckler went back and added 10 minutes of random footage from the rodeo. See more »


The setting is a small house and shack in the middle of the desert, an open area with no hiding places, yet the Chooper is able to run around dressed entirely in black in the middle of broad daylight without being noticed. See more »

A Horror Flick AND Rodeo Documentary!!!
13 February 1999 | by See all my reviews

Blood Shack is actually two films put together:

1. One story centers around a woman trying not to get killed by a madman hanging out at a shack in the desert. 2. The other film shows the sheer joy that can be had spending time at the rodeo on a hot summer's day.

Sadly all the action in the film takes place at the rodeo.

The filmaker(s) evidently ran out of story (or plot, or ideas etc...) about halfway through the film. So what we get is the protagonist will occasionally leave the crime scene and go to the rodeo where the viewer is treated (heh heh...) to scenes of bullriders frolicking about. These are the most frightening scenes in the film.

The horror action is cheeeesssyyyy and not imaginative. Everyone sleepwalks through this flick. No surprises, NO budget, no action, no acting, whew... just cheese.

Blood Shack is truly one of the worst films ever filmed. I still gave it a 4 though. I like the rodeo...
