Storyline

It's time for the annual "Muskie Madness" fishing contest, and the lake is packed with hopeful fishermen. It soon becomes apparent, however, that a psychotic serial killer has also decided to join the festivities. Although the police have determined that the killer is claiming his victims by landing them with giant fishhooks, no clear suspects can be found since everyone is using the exact same hook! What is the killer's goal? And more importantly, can the murders be stopped? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Not too shabby, especially since Jim Mallon and Kevin Murphy from "MST3K" worked on this!!!
14 September 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Blood Hook", despite what I've heard some say, is a pretty good comedy-horror film. However, I initially watched this film due to the direction of Jim Mallon and key grip of Kevin Murphy, both from "Mystery Science Theater 3000". They both did a top-notch job, but then, they're from MST3K, so of course they did a good job, and this was made before MST3K even hit the airwaves on the independent KTMA! But on to the movie. I found the dialog and humor in this film good natured and entertaining, and the entire movie was just really enjoyable. To those who haven't seen this film, search it out, now!
