Bloody Murder is pretty much a straight forward rip off of the Friday the 13th movies. It takes place at a camp where the counsellors get knocked off one by one. The mask the killer uses is a hockey mask similar to Jason's. There is even an old man warning the teenagers of horrible things to come. Bloody Murder isn't all that good, but I enjoyed it as one of those "so bad it's good" slasher movies. The acting isn't very good except for the comic relief character of Tobe played by Patrick Cavanaugh. He did a great job as the funny guy who never seems to get the girl.
This is pretty much a hack and slash horror film without the excessive blood and gore. There are a few "neat" kills without much brutality. Interesting that the lead actress (Jessica Morris) hated the film and put it down. I thought she was a big reason for the film not being any better. Her portrayal of the main girl in the scary movie wasn't very well done. Surprising to me because I caught her in an episode of One Life to Live and thought she did much better in that. Maybe daytime is her thing.
Overall, fans of the genre might like it for it's cheesiness and for being a blatant rip off of the Friday films. There was a sequel made and from what I've read, it's a bit better.
