Storyline

A rowdy rock group are accompanied by a film crew to desolate Lake Infinity to produce a music video. One night the musicians visit the local pub while the various members of the film crew satisfy their carnal desires with one another aboard the luxurious houseboat they are all staying in. They are so busy they fail to notice that a rampaging lunatic has snuck aboard the boat, and one by one the various characters are brutally slaughtered in a variety of grisly ways.

Beyond bad. Beyond terrible. Possibly the worst ever. That's why it's good.
14 October 2001 | by (Melbaourne, Australia) – See all my reviews

Houseboat Horror is dreadful. Appalling. Pathetic at best. But at the same time, it is amusing to see people like John-Michael Howsen and Jim from Neighbours (remember him?) in such a dreadful film.

Of course the movie itself is not great, but that in itself is entertaining, especially if you get a few mates around and have a few drinks while watching it. Because like everything else, it's always better when you're drunk.

Or to put it simply, if you can put up with bad acting, bad filming, bad directing, bad sound, bad lighting, bad special effects, and bad everything else, you'll love it.
