94 minutes? Doesn't seem like it!
16 May 2002 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

When I go to see a movie, I want to see a good one. This one is totally opposite this subject. Mountaintop Motel Massacre really sucks. It says on the case that it is approximately 94 minutes, well, this movie seems like it lasts for 5 hours. I kept on having to get off the couch and stop the movie. I agree with one reviewer who said in his or her review that the movie is only for people who get drunk. I own this movie and trust me, the next yard sale we have (which I hope is soon), I will sell this for a penny.

I hate this movie.Don't waste your money on it. Watch a horror movie like POLTERGEIST or THE EXORCIST. I'll say it once, I'll say it twice. This movie is crap!
