Here we go again! Another killer psycho-wearing a hockey mask-on the loose slasher flick!
**SPOILERS** Not that bad of a rip off of "Friday the 13th", with a little of "Halloween" and "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" thrown in for good measure. "Bloody Murder" has a bunch of teenage camp counselors at camp Placid Pines victimized, and murdered, by a masked nut-case running around in the woods with a chainsaw while dressed in-what looks like-car mechanic overalls.
You at first have the feeling that all this murder and carnage is only in the imagination of the people victimized by it. Even though a number of camp counselors are brutally murdered within the first half hour of the film it's done in such a hap hazard, and unconvincing, manner that the killings come across as it their part of some kind of dream sequence and not at all reality based.
We're also given clues to just who this masked killer, at the very beginning of the film, really is: The legendary Trevor Moorehouse. Moorehouse we're told is a deranged psycho who's been roaming the woods outside Camp Placid Pines for years slashing, with his chainsaw, anyone who got in his way. What Moorehouse's reasons are for doing all that is left very unclear in the movie. The closes I can come to understand Moorehouse's bizarre behavior is that somehow he was mistreated by the camps, Placid Pine, counselors and fellow campers when he was a young boy and is now taking his anger out on society!
Of all the characters in the film the one I found most interesting was that of the chubby and grossly out of shape local Sheriff Williams, Michael Prohaska. Williams who's been stationed in and around Camp Placid Pines since it came into existence seemed to be totally oblivious to what was going on around there now as well as over the years. Were told that during that span of time the masked psycho Trevor Moorehouse had murdered dozens of people. The Sheriff has such a bulging-looking like woman just about to give birth-stomach that's probably from the result of too many Big Mack's and Quarter Pounders-with cheese-that I waited-in vain- for him to finally tilt over and fall flat on his face! The fact that he didn't defied the very laws and long proved theories of Newtonian psychics!
The usual surprise, which was no surprise at all, and twist ending to the film was so predictable that in fact you would have been totally surprised if it didn't happen at all!
