One of the worst horror films I've ever seen
27 June 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Blood Shack is in my list of top three worst horror films ever, alongside A Night To Dismember and S.I.C.K. I've seen tons of low budget horror films in my time, and most give you some form of minimal entertainment. Blood Shack gives you none. One of the most pointless and boring scenes is the rodeo footage. It seems to go on forever and is obviously only there to pad the film out. The plot is virtually non existent and the acting is limp. No tension, no suspense, and no gore.

My advice: if you want a "so bad it's good" film, watch The Suckling, They Don't Cut The Grass Anymore or Don't Go In The Woods Alone instead! Those films are low budget trash that at least deliver some fun.
